That's what I expected, thanks.

The delay in the process could be the distance, we've only spoken over the phone so far. I think he said that the business manager would only key in the order today as we spoke late yesterday.

My dad is bringing my trade-in on Saturday to be valued. If I don't like the valuation I'll sell privately.

Our dealer gave it to us 2 days later, it could have just been a simple case of them forgetting it, but that is how long it took in our case.

That is why. The manager supposedly has to sign off on the order in the system, which will then give the VON. At least that is how my salesman explained it.

Once my order was in with him I got a print out with a blank VON. He said to wait an minute so the manager could work his magic, 5 minutes later he gave me the same print out with the VON on it.

Took <1 hour at the dealership and I was answering all kinds of questions and giving several of the salesguys and the manager tidbits learned here on the board

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

How do you know what build month you are scheduled for? I'm either February or March. I doubt this is covered by Milous's tracking system.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Although I know this isn't exactly "granite crystal metallic" but is this the closest color to it? It seems lighter than the charcoal and darker than the mineral gray, thus nearing the color granite???

I'm having a hard time imagining the color from the photos of the granite colored chargers/challengers/300's on the Jeep. Plus I'm colorblind and that isn't helping either.

It probably depends on how the dealer handles orders. The dealer I went to has a manager that places all orders for customers and dealer inventory and they order on specific days, so we ended up waiting a couple days before they sent me the VON printout.

It was my understanding that the color on the Jeep website doesn't even come close to the actual color of the car. I know, it seems hard to believe but I'm pretty sure it is true.

If I remember right this is mineral grey... the granite is darker. It will be pretty close to the.dark charcoal.

Just do what I am doing and wait a few more weeks til they start showing up on dealer lots...

It's funny. On my monitor the Granite looks realistic, but the Max Steel looks way off.
