Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

Ha ha would be nice to pick it up at JNAP as I am currently 3 hours from there. But nothing wrong with a run down to Houston and drive it back to Florida. Will be a nice shake down trip...

My dad said that a neighbor picked up his Chevrolet truck in Detroit many years ago. So, I guess you used to be able to do it back in the olden days....
I too, wish we could now.

Wrabb and Grandmaster, my dates are similar to yours but I don't have access to VOTS. Could you let me know when yours ships via railroad and when it arrives at dealer?

Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

Have been "in bay at facility" since 22 DEC making 27 DEC delivery in Houston uber optimistic. Guessing 10-14 JAN would be more like it.

Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

Fun2drive, there's 6 CRDs by my count on MOTS built on 12/18 that are stuck at I (including mine and yours). Usually they go to KZ in a day. I wonder what's up.....

Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

Day before Christmas Eve I think that they are looking at a unit train or at least filling a number of train cars for the trip south. That is the most economical way to ship them. I think it is simply waiting on sufficient volume to ship.
I am expecting the SFUs to arrive between 10-14 JAN based purely on the fact that there is some slowdown at JNAP this time of year and that not enough have been built, inspected and released to justify shipping.

I have seen this a number of times on this site over this year and it makes sense to hold a number of them then once they have an adequate number ship them out.
27 DEC is a pipe dream not possible given where many of our SFUs.
Maybe a contest to pick the arrival date would be more productive lol.

Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

I'm patient so when it gets there it gets there but that doesn't stop me from checking 8 times a day.
The guys that really had the long haul were those that pre-placed their orders way back in March or so last year then had to do it again in August not getting them until the end of October or so.
What a vehicle however and well worth waiting for...

Will do. All the Jeeps that I know are heading to Houston seem to be in limbo. Like Fun2drive said, I think they are waiting for more units before shipping.

Yup, seems that 27th date was super optimistic now that so many of us are in a holding pattern. I was really hoping to have it for Christmas or close to it so I could use my time off to take a road trip. Oh well, it'll get here when it gets here. Hopefully before mid Jan.

Re: Production Scheduled to Trim?

Ugh why are we shutdown right now?

I'd love to see why it's been stuck in "I" status and go over there to see what the heck's going on with it.
