Well, OK, probably not. I've been watching ordered diesels since just before they started shipping. Jeep does not use obvious logic when building these things!

I have noticed though that those that went D1 between the 18th and 19th have been getting built lately. You were D1 on the 19th, I was D1 on the 21st. Hopefully that means mine will get built w/in a week.

My only hope of victory now is that you get held up in inspection, and trust me, I don't wish that on anyone! Hopefully everything goes smoothly and you're driving home in a couple weeks!! And maybe mine won't be too far behind!

Good luck, the race isn't over yet!!
Re: Logic... I wrote a perl script to parse the delivered listings and then performed some statistical graphs of the delivery times... Oh the things we do to pass the time...

NERD! I did something similar using FileMaker (I'm a FileMaker developer). That's almost scary.

We used to use FileMaker where I work. I miss it... They chose a really useless "customized" app to replace it, but whoever wrote this new software customized it to THEIR needs, not ours. Works really great!!

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Here is an update on the oil filter part number. I ordered two filters from moparonlineparts. They sent me two of the old part number filters instead of the new part number that I ordered. I will call them tomorrow to complain. I previously received the correct filter from justforjeeps. Below is a photo of the two filters. Note that the newer part number filter has the O-ring further from the tube end. I figure there is a reason for this engineering change. For the record, the part numbers in question are:

old PN: 68229402AA
new PN: 68109834AA

Thanks for posting this up. Might want to cross-post into another thread or two as well.

So here's a question: Why is MOTS so far behind VOTS? I always thought it was the reverse. As of the 5:00 update this morning, MOTS sill shows no movement on your Jeep.

I'm not sure... I posed that question in the MOTS thread to Milous.. we'll see if he has time to respond. I suspect it has to do with the outage his tracking experienced a day or two ago...

btw.. Mine is now in 'Final Inspection' according to VOTS.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

HI All This is my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland in True Blue, with Off Road II, Tow Package, Electronic brake controller, Currently has the Rhino Pioneer rack installed on the roof with all extras including a ARB awning on route as well, hope to be here this weekend. Plus many more as time permits

A few issues with mine but all I would say all local dealers fault none Jeeps at this stage.
1. Rear left fender very loose and flaps (awaiting clips)
2. Plastics on internal tailgate broken from dealer with install of tow bar( awaiting parts
3. Dash has large scratch across it from new (awaiting parts)
4. Rear rubber mat (awaiting from new vehicle order in September 2013)
5. Wind deflectors (awaiting from new vehicle order in September 2013)
6. Mudflaps (awaiting from new vehicle order in September 2013)

I am wanting to get either the ARB or UNEEK4X4 bullbar fitted once I see some detailed photos.

Apart from the waiting for items out of my control I think the vehicle is awesome, love the diesel as so quiet and amazing take off and speed especially when overtaking trucks.

Awesome fuel consumption as mine is sitting around the 8.9 with 1450km on the clock as of today.

Cheers Brenden
