Hmmm, here's what my dealer said when I asked if they could call me before arrival so I could watch it be unloaded and then go through my (JeepGarage provided) checklist...

"We are excited about the arrival of your new Jeep Grand Cherokee! We really do not know exactly the day it arrives, but we will call you right away, for you to inspect and test drive it. Unfortunately, for security purposes, not even we have access to the rail yards any longer. We have to wait until the truck arrives."

Funny, with help of Willx and Milous we pretty much know exactly where our SFUs are but the dealer can't find out what day it is being delivered? I would think a simple call to the local truck company could tell them...

Re: 2014 diesel production

So mines sitting in a yard a hour or so away. Yet my delivery isn't until Tuesday! I want to go find it and at least look at it (maybe persuade someone to take it home).

Shannon,
Louisiana local news is advising everyone to expect traffic delays this weekend caused by roadwork on I-10 east and west bound over the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge between Lafayette and Baton Rouge. Such delays can easily add an hour or more to your journey to New Orleans. You might want to consider an alternate route exiting I-10E at exit 103 in Lafayette to US 90 south/east and then exiting US 90 to Interstate Loop 310 at Boutte which is just a few miles west of New Orleans. I use this route as it only takes me 2 hours and 20 minutes from my place in Broussard to the New Orleans airport. It is mostly 4 lane divided highway with 65 to 70 mph limits except when passing through a few small towns.

Be careful where you travel and stay in New Orleans. There are some areas where big cities issues make it unsafe. PM me if with your cell number if you want to discuss or I can be of further assistance.

Wishing you safe and uneventful journeys. Keep us posted when possible.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Got a call from my dealer *** MY SFU IS IN *** !!!!

The dealer waited for me to come over before touching anything on it. She is a beauty. Still a virgin - covered with road dust and plastics. They let me in to the restricted service area and allowed me to take some initial snaps, smell the sweet interior scent (the dealer said he never had such scent in a jeep), feel the leather without any chemicals and oils. An exhilarating experience. Delivery is tomorrow after PDI and my acceptance inspection. I'll have additional pics and notes tomorrow.
