Re: 2014 diesel production

Not looking to throw salt on Shannon's open rebate wound but I got a $500 bonus cash allowance postcard from jeep in the mail today! It does say that it is regional ( I'm in New England) and it has my dealer specifically named on it. It says it expires 1/31/14. I assume this means there are others out there. Anyway, every bit helps! Now i just need to hear that my jeep is in. Any day now!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Posted this a few days ago but there didn't seem to be many people watching and or responding so I thought it a good idea to put it up again.

Haven't seen anyone here talk about it but Chrysler is offering a $500 bonus cash offer for Veterans who can show an honorable discharge paper and currently inactive military reserve personnel. Expires Nov. 18th. Applies to almost everything except SRT, Dart SE, Viper and a Fiat model. Hope my SFU makes it here by then.

Here's a link:http://www.jeep.com/en/incentives/bo...tary_incentive

Perhaps these should be standard SFU accessories?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Fourth full day sitting in Council Bluffs, IA. Still on a rail car...Wouldn't be fitting if they hooked her up and pulled her back to Detroit. Date ordered: 08/13/2013...The shipping gods have a strange sense of humor! Tomorrow is a full 3 months since the order was placed. Oh well it is just a Jeep!

You're not alone. Today is the 3 month anniversary of placing my order. My jeep's last known position was Proviso, IL with a delivery date that has slipped to Nov 25th. I think the journey from order to delivery is kinda like entering a rubber duck race. If you're lucky, it stays in the main current and you win. If you're not, you end up in the slow moving water, while occasionally getting hung up on a snag or trapped in some backwater pool.

My dealer's General Manager did warn me the process is completely unpredictable.

Occasionally on TV the right combination of writers and actors come together to create something really special. I think of Cheers, Everybody Loves Raymond, Seinfeld and most recently Big Bang Theory. That has happened here at the Garage, with this group of diesel fanatics. What a great thing to be part of. Now excuse me, I have to go check MOTS.....
Some of us pure dinosaur fuel types believe the same thing. Can't unicorns and the oil burners be in the same gang?!

I fully concur with the sentiments here sounding loudly after Marlon's ordeal. Even my wife occasionally concedes that we've benefitted from this wonderful globe-trotting group.

Scott -- thanks for pulling this idea together and getting/keeping it up and running.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Want to say sorry to all for my rant earlier, but my frustrations got the best of me. I am truly happy to all who are getting the $500 coupon, and congrats to all the people taking delivery this week. It seems that most of the original orders either have been, or will be delivered within the next few days.

Picked mine up tonight after waiting for over three hours at the dealer for PDI, NAV upgrade, and detailing. Couldn't perform an adequate inspection because it was dark. Can tell I have the taillight issue but everything else appeared to be okay (DEF tank full!). The dealer used the acceptance checklist I printed from our forum in conjunction with the PDI which impressed me.

There were five miles on the odometer when the dealer took delivery and they drove it for exactly 10 miles as per their delivery protocol.

Thus far am impressed with the vehicle.
