Mine has left Corsicana, Tx. Now I am having delusions of grandeur that I may be able to pick mine up this weekend, even though my ETA on MOTS got pushed from the 13th to the 14th.
Yup - finally.

Mark should be calling me this morning to confirm it's there. I'm hoping he takes care of my small laundry list of things to be done before I go over there after work - the main one, not drilling holes for the front plate.

Hoping yours is earlier than estimated.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Congrat wraab.
Maybe someday I will actually LEAVE the factory.
Frankly I can only assume sitting in the same spot for 21 days that something was not right with my ride in inspection.
To me the 17th of JAN now seems very optimistic and glad I have a flight scheduled for 4 FEB.
Maybe-maybe it will actually be there then.

Looking forward to hearing if you get your ride today and Mark knocks out your small punch list.
Cheers

Re: 2014 diesel production

And I got the confirmation it's at the dealer and no front bracket installed. Mark said all the other stuff would be taken care of (DEF, gas, not washed, plastic left on mats...) by the time I get there.

Now to get out of the office early and go sign the papers...and then have to go back and pick it up later since I can't drive 2 cars at once.

Re: 2014 diesel production

And guess what Grandmaster's ride is sitting at Springs, TX waiting to be unloaded. Looking like I am going to be way at the back of the bus since I have not moved anyplace yet again.
Congrats to both of you!!!

Sitting at dealer trying to finalize everything. Then I'll be coming back to pick her up tonight.

Sorry - I've been slammed and had no time to play with black thunder (she'll sit next to white lightning in my garage).

Everything went pretty smooth - I've only put on like 16 miles and it had 7 at delivery. Hopefully I'll have a little time tonight but most likely it'll be this weekend when I can start to futz with everything. Love it already and I found where to turn off the ECO as soon as I got in the jeep.

FYI - mark was great, took care of my little list. Got a "year/3-4" of oil changes thrown in. FYI - they have no diesel on site, so I'll be going back with a receipt after I go fill up. Food for thought when you take delivery.


I'll report more as I have time to finally enjoy her
