Re: 15 Weeks..3 Days IT'S HERE ! ! ! !

Hold the presses! My order was identical like yours. Yukon, are you sure that you don’t have mine? LOL, just kidding!

I got a call from my rep this afternoon and was told that it is currently in Illinois. I guess it is trying to hitch a ride with a freight train heading west. New estimated delivery date to dealer is next Monday 1/10. I guess I should be able to pick it up on 1/11/11. Wow, that will be 16 weeks and a day. I just have to wait just a little longer.

Post more pics after you bring her home. Enjoy!!!

Talking Re: 15 Weeks..3 Days IT'S HERE ! ! ! !

So I was on a business trip to Detroit yesterday and I had some spare time so I decided to stop by a local Jeep dealership. Sitting outside was a beautiful Blackberr Pearl with L/D Beige interior was on the lot. The only thig was as I circled the Jeep admiring its beauty, it seems a piece of metal from my jacket zipper was scratching the outside of the jeep about waist high all the way around the truck .

Its ok the dealer told me, they will get it repainted and it will only take about 2 weeks , I hope this wasn't yours

Congratz my friend!! I am egar to hear your write up on your first impressions now that you finally have your baby!

Re: 15 Weeks..3 Days IT'S HERE ! ! ! !

This is my first post here. I've been lurking for a while while my GC was on order. I had ordered an Overland 4x4 5.7L 430N with the optional saddle interior back in early Nov. 2010 and my dealer kept telling me the build date was getting pushed further and further back into Feb. some time.

Meanwhile, the lease on my Pacifica was up Dec. 28 and Chrysler leasing was not granting extensions beyond 9 days. One day, my dealer called me and told me he just gotten in a truck he had ordered on speck a while ago that was identical to mine except it had the stock interior and was I interested? Well, as it happens, my wife and I were having second thoughts about the optional interior almost from the day we ordered it, so this became quite a nice surprise. I was able to pick up the new vehicle on Dec. 28, right after a snow storm. What fun! The only things to do were to set up the compass and phone, music system, etc.

Speaking of the compass, you need to go into the EVIC to the system setup and then compass variance and set it to your region. There is a North America map in the owners manual that shows the variance zones. It comes from the factory set at region 8 which is for Detroit. I live on Long Island, NY which is region 11. A few quick button pushes fixes that. Finally, I had to make the flashing "cal" light go out. This requires driving in circles in an area where there are no large metal objects till it goes out. Easy, I went to a large empty parking lot and there in the middle was a police cruiser. I drove in circles around him at 5 mph till the light went out. He was watching me go round and round with a puzzled look on his face. I finally just drove away and he didn't follow me.

There's lots of settings in the EVIC that are useful, like making the seats slide back when you shut down, making the side mirrors angle down when in reverse, etc. If you haven't been all the way through it, it's worth a look.

The only thing I keep forgetting to do is lower my landing gear when landing. That is, lower the ride height when parking before shutting down to make it easier to get in and out. I joke with my son that I need a checklist to drive this thing.

Anyway, that's enough jabbering for my first post. Happy New Year everyone.

Great first post, mgmiller. I also picked up my Overland on 12/28.

Thanks for the laugh re the compass calibration and circling the wagons on the police cruiser! Re the dipping mirrors, I like that feature on the starboard side mirror but wish that the port side didn't dip also. I had this on previous vehicles and it's a nice feature. The current setup completely removes a critical view when backing up, and I'm not ready to put all my faith in the backup camera after years of driving and using that mirror. Would be nice to offer an option to dip either or both mirrors via the EVIC.

Congrats, enjoy your Jeep, and welcome.

Yukon, you did a pretty quick turn at the dealer. They typically spend half the time of the delivery visit trying to sell you Simoniz, LoJack, "theft deterrent stickers" and all other kinds of nonsense.

Did you discuss extended warranty with them?

As I type this you're probably quaffing deep huffs of that new car smell and having an ADHD episode as you try to decide which feature to play with first...

Re: 15 Weeks..3 Days IT'S HERE ! ! ! !

lol hey Cperez, what add on waranty did you go with? I managed to get the dealer to throw in extending the bumper to bumper warranty to match the duration of the powertrain warranty. I think after the original 3yr it is a $100 deductable

Mashie, the dealer I bought from sold the Zurich plan only. I was leery of it even though they told me that it was accepted by any certified service center and not just Chrysler dealers. I have since read some stories here on JG that have turned me off to it. Like you, I find comfort in OEM parts and service plans so I'm going to go with the chryslerwarrantys.com option.

It was not critical for me to roll that into my financing so I wasn't under any pressure to make the decision on the day I took delivery. That being the case, I guess I have 12 mos or 12K miles to buy the plan. Am I right about that or is there a risk to waiting? Opinions/advice welcomed.

Re: 15 Weeks..3 Days IT'S HERE ! ! ! !

Had a bit of a family crisis yesterday morning, so I did not get a chance to do much with the new Overland. Last evening I downloaded the pix's from delivery. Had no problems so far, very surprised with how well this truck handles. I have been driving a GMC Denali for years and this is like a sports car in comparison. Will have time today to get better acquainted with this beauty.

One question...my phone LG Cosmos paired without problem, BUT I cannot see my phone book....any suggestions? ? ?
