Meh. I could pull that off in a week and a half if I wanted to. Drop in the bucket.

If rumors were dubunked Sunday, why did ALL shifts in Body get sent home early everyday this week? Why would they rule out layoffs if they still don't have this straightened out? We haven't built more than 200 WK bodies per shift since the first week! We fill the system back to capacity everyday, even when the previous shift gets sent home, and you guys' side keeps pulling cars. So what normally would be a giant gap in the system, gets filled in 3-4hrs, then they kick us out. This happens everyday now, bc YOU GUYS over there AREN'T running up to speed, and all the issues HAVEN'T been sorted out! Didn't I see you riding around in Body just the other day with nothing to do!? Sure looks like everything is fine to me..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I want to buy a set of WeatherTech floor and cargo liners for the Maine "mud season". I'd like to order them now but 2014 is not a choice. I emailed them and did not get a reply.

Do you think the 2013 JGC floor and cargo area dimensions changed any? Is it likely that a set of 2013 liners would fit well?

Do you know of another company that makes liners that will fit?

Thanks, Tom

This is the kinda stuff that irritates the hell out of me.. We're currently NOT a publicly traded company, so why the hell do people need to know when and what we get??.. Assuredly many of you get bonuses and such on your jobs, but I never hear how much. Hell, they don't even tell us what Ralph and the boys get for all our hard work. So why does the guy on my block who knows I work at Chrysler need to know when I'll be coming home with an extra $2k on such and such date? Or the guy at the bowling alley who's always trying to sell me some bs, who also knows I work at Chrysler. My, "man I ain't got it right now" line aint gonna work that day! Hell, why does my fiancé even need to know I'm getting an extra $2k!??? It's bad enough that she feels entitled to a chunk of my tax return, and now that we're getting profit sharing checks again, I have to pony up on that too? Don't get me wrong, I'm all about transparency and sharing, but I'm beginning to learn that women aren't! They just want YOU to disclose everything. So screw transparency, and I'll share what I want!

Geez Louise! Talk about taxation without representation! I mean, it never fails!.. EVERYTIME I get a bonus, I get seduced, yet ultimately shook down like the boys in blue do the wanna be gangsters.

It's just not fair. I demand a recount!

I mean justice..

I mean... ummm.. privacy. Yea, that's it! PRIVACY!!!

Well, at your request, we did a recount.

Your bonus has been reduced to a dollar three eighty.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

"A dollar three-eighty” means a small (or unknown) amount, given in a nonsense language.

I think Bill is full of nonsense...hehe

I'm just saying what was told at the meeting. NO LAYOFF.

I ride around all the time when I have nothing else to do. If I don't, I'm guaranteed to fall asleep from boredom and that leads to a loss of employment. That won't be me.

When I worked the line with nothing to do, I'd walk around the plant. Everyone knows this.

Since I can't stand about 98% of the people who work there, talking at the table is just unacceptable. So I just... roam around.

One person I do get along with is coming to C-shift body in the next few weeks. So now I'll have THREE reasons to be over there!

Enjoy your kick-outs. We're staying until 4:30.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe they are short shifting because then have liquidated damages clause in the contract with the certain supplier that is causing the slowdowns and stoppages?

I would imagine it is more cost effective to send some guys home and pay a few hours for nothing if they can monetize the lost productivity and hit the vendor with it.
