i understand frustration but a vehicle order usually isn't 1-2 months from start to finish. sorry you're frustrated man, I hope it comes soon to you!
I've been waiting for someone else to say this.. Scott actually told everyone this was going to happen, and even Milous alluded to it. I guess I was the one who got ppl all hyped and expecting things to continue on at the same pace they'd been going for the past 3 years. Which coincidentally wasn't even what I said either. As I forecasted, it's great that many have begun recieving their Jeeps, and there are so many sitting on dealer lots.. But again, this is basically a complete launch, with so much being new, and to expect things to happen in haste, is something no manufacturer concerned about delivering a quality product can offer.

Nevertheless, it's sad to see some of you guys I've developed an online bond with get jacked around in regard to updates and solid info. But if we really take a step back and look at things for what they are, nobody said you'd be kept in the loop in the first place.

Again, don't get me wrong, I absolutely empathize with all of you who have grown anxious, especially members like John, and Sno who've been all over this launch like flies on poop.

But it seems to me like the tracking has become a bit of a gift and a curse.. It's always good to have a man on the inside, but you don't always wanna hear what that man has to say.

I hope you guys can hang in there, and judge us for what we've produced, not the logistics behind you getting it.

I see several billets "in transit" to my local dealerships.... just happened within last few days. I think billets are starting to get shipped out.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Chevy, I hear what your saying. When I ordered, my salesman told me beginning of May delivery. I see guys getting their Jeeps quicker and it makes me all antsy. But we should all just let things take their natural course. These vehicles aren't tinker toys, so getting them out the door with excellent quality won't be easy. We live in a world where people expect instant gratification, and that isn't always possible. I know some of the guys are having to put up with extra b.s. to get their trucks, but I hope they can see it as kinda taking one for the team, so we all have a better product delivered at the end of the day.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Jacko.. I couldn't have said it better myself.. And trust me, I try hard to make sense.

But again, I understand the frustration. But on the flip side, any one of the guys who ordered one of those oh-so-great VWs or whatever else, AS SOON AS IT LAUNCHED, will attest to having the same hang ups.. No, scratch that.. They won't! Because they prolly knew jack for 2-3 months, bc they didn't have Milous over there on those sites feeding them info, and tracking their stuff for them.

Now I'm sure it has to be hard to see others get their Jeep before you, when you KNOW you ordered yours AT LEAST a month before them! But again, had none of this tracking and inside intel been available to any of you, and this board didnt exist, you'd all just think things were going according to plan.

So basically what I'm trying to get across is, not to let the awesomeness of JG be the cause of your mid-life crisis. Take it in stride people, and lets talk about what you think of it all in a year, when your Jeep has seen far less dealer visits than previous ones. (If any!)

I called and don't expect that since you signed up, you'll be getting this coupon. It is a lottery system and they only give out so many. Bottom line is you have to be LUCKY!!

I am placing significantly more weight on the "estimated" portion of the statement "estimated delivery", than I am on "delivery". 6-8 weeks is the target for Jeep and I'm glad they're pushing their production to meet that goal. However, if it ends up at 12-16 weeks, well, it wasn't like they didn't warn us it could be that amount of time.

I didn't handle this delay too well last night. I've got a sick Great Dane and he's got us on edge.

You're right on the one out of thousands aspect. I'm either going to have to be patient, or failing that, take my business elsewhere.

Promise not to unload my frustrations on the board again - as always, appreciate the info you guys in the know are willing to share with us.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It's ok Buckaroo, it happens. Things happen in everyones lives that we just can't wait for. It is understandable that you can't wait and might have to look elsewhere, but this isn't something we were told from the very beginning from Scott and Milous.

Talking Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I made the call. Got lucky 500 $$$ times. Money is good till 5/31. Summit order was placed 3/11, Pre-Release 3/14 and has hung there since. Summits don't seem to be advancing right now. Thank$ for the number.
