Congrats. I am still T-6 days, but at least I know it is at the dealers, stored inside.

Re: 2014 diesel production

JeepGCOverland:
Thanks for the info. I finally stumbled across the no sunroof delete and the dealer finally contacted me and said 7 years which to me is a good idea.

Seems no one can tell me about the Pacific Blue color actually being available or not. I think that is my only question. I have done the cost comparison and the difference is about $4400 between the Limited and going to the Overland. Oh and headlight bucket is the term for the entire headlight assembly. I did see that the LED ring is on the headlight bucket on the LUXII package.
Thanks

Looks like mfine took the scenic tour down to southwest Indiana yesterday. Was hoping it would make Chicago today. I'm trying not to get too excited until it makes the Twin Cities, but it's really hard not to. Just hoping that I'll be able to take delivery next week some time. Guess I've got more time to finish reading the manual....

Re: 2014 diesel production

Am I still in Vis Java Yard? It says I departed several days ago but it looks like I didn't go anywhere.

Are we going to have a booby prize for the one that gets theirs the latest?

You're not alone. There are still a few of us August orders that can't seem to break free of the Detroit tractor beam. It's just a series of lemony snicket's holding our SFUs up. We will see them eventually.

Congratulations, Dome! Remember that PM in August where I said something about delivery around Halloween or Veteran's Day? I guess I shouldn't have joked about those dates.

WOW. Took delivery of my SFU last night. I have an excellent relationship with the dealer and per my request did not want any "delivery" procedure. Just give me the keys and let me go. Her comment to her staff was "the customer will know more about this car than we do right now". Lol

Granite is beautiful. None of the finish concerns I have heard about from others. The summit brown interior is also a perfect complement and is gorgeous.

All you guys still waiting to get your units, hang tight! It is really really well worth the wait.

Another round of applause to all the insiders on this forum especially Willx, Milous, and Chevy. Without your support here I would have lost interest and quite possibly ended up with a different vehicle. You guys are a credit to your industry. The craftsmanship and build quality I have seen so far on the vehicle is as good or better than anything else I have ever owned, and the incredible design, very rich appointments and the awesome mechanical prowess all add up to a truly epic package. Thank you.

More to come...

I have the same question. I've also been stuck in the same yard waiting for a truck to Koons Jeep. It looks like there are several other cars in the same situation including chivvary who just arrived there.
