Anyway, you all should know that some of your Jeeps will be shipping soon. Idk what your tracking info says, but based on what I see, some of it needs to be updated. While other's cars have issues relating back to the "great catastrophe" back in January. Again, I won't say who, because I don't wanna discourage anyone.

Nevertheless, things are flowing smoothly, and there are no issues at the moment with any cars currently being built. We had a lil mix up last week with something from a supplier, but all is well again.

I know this is kind of a useless update, but I wanted to let you all know that your cars aren't just sitting around collecting dust.. Or snow. Things just take time.

Edit: Idk about Assembly, but they've got this sucker cranked up so high over here in Body, we may just hit 650-670 today!.. She's definitely in high gear!!!
THANKS CHEVYBOY! YOU HAVE GIVEN US MORE INFORMATION ON THE 2014 GC BUILD, THAN WE WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND OUT IF WE WORKED AT THE PLANT OURSELVES. I APPRECIATE YOU ALOT! THANK YOU FOR PARICIPATING IN THE BUILD OF MY NEW SUMMIT. YOU ROCK MAN.

The "great catastrophe" was a name I placed on the major setback we had shortly after production began.. It was an issue that basically idled '14 WK production, and had quite a few engineers walking a tight rope. It took some time for them to sort out, but was indeed sorted out. Problem was, there were already a few thousand cars built that had to be fixed, and so this presented more delays.. Later builds (with the fix in place) actually began shipping before many of the initial batch, bc of the amount of work it takes/took to repair those cars. Hence some getting their cars first, that ordered after others. Again, I can't go into detail as to what exactly was affected, but I can tell you that none have been shipped without the "fix" in place, and it's not something any of you will ever notice. As a matter of fact, when you get your Jeep it will be impossible to tell whether or not yours was one that was in that batch, even if you take the whole car apart in your driveway. There is NO DIFFERENCE between the builds. And you can take that to the bank Jack!

I just received the VOTS email that my Overland is scheduled for production and would go to frame in the next couple of weeks. I sure hope it goes quicker than that. I ordered 2/9 and the wait is killing.

Thanks Chevy for all of the great production info.

J/k, it wasn't yours..

But there is another audit area called the Metrology lab.. You talking about a fine tooth comb! Sheesh.. Those cars are picked over like commercial airliners. They do mostly part verification over there, and keep some top secret stuff in there too.. Very restricted area. But I know a guy. Yours isn't in there either.
Max Steel with a Pentastar and Indigo interior and ORA II and Advanced Tech?

Nah. Mine is still in pre-release.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hey Chevy -- can you give us a heads up when you see some Billet Silver's rolling around? I wanna see that color in the flesh before I place my CRD order. So hopefully it shows up on lots before too long....

If this helps go check out a 13' Wrangler they are using Billet Silver on it already. Awesome color.

The fact that we needed the vehicle a few weeks ago, when according to the dealer it was supposed to be here. That's been my problem all along, we were told 45 days, and we get it in 75? I will spot them a week or 2 but 4 weeks?

There are lots of Billet Jeeps rolling around. Saw a Summit in Billet in person for the first time other day, and from the side, about 50 yards away, I actually thought it was an SRT. The only trim I have yet to see in Billet so far is the Overland. But you should see em all start popping up pretty soon.

That's what wife and I did at dealer lot ..saw some 2013 Wranglers and a couple of Chrysler cars, (maybe 300's), in sun and shade. Then decided on the Billet Silver.
Just, my opinion, but if one hasn't viewed the colors in person, make the effort to do so as web pics can be way off on exterior colors.
As for the interior, went with the Indigo/Brown without the benefit of a live view, as the two other int. color options didn't suit our needs,(too light and too dark).
