Dealer did a search for me, no luck. I ordered a Limited with OA2, Lux2, RA4, v8 in max steel over black. There was only one in the system, ordered yesterday destination Utah. I'm guessing that may be someone here??

So theoretically, can ordering start up any day? That is, should they try to send the order every day? or Every Tuesday?

Even when I told them they didn't need to check everyday, they do. I guess I am getting my moneys worth out of the $599 doc fee.

Also, has there been anything concrete on the reason for the delays? I have heard many things from here and elsewhere. The current most accepted reason seems to be the overseas shipments taking precedence now. That is, not being able to keep up with demand. Is this just a best guess or do we have a reliable source.

Certainly, there has been no press release.

The day that I can no longer change my order will be the day CRD ordering opens up... If I didn't have bad luck I would have no luck at all.

Not aware of any issues with the wheels. Tires are the hold up (supply), about three weeks out for production start.

This is why I hate big companies... The same tire is used on every grand cherokee with 18" rims. No one can tell me they stopped production on everything that those tires come on, I'm sure they are still putting them on the limited's and Overlands with 18s...

Exactly. Screw the little guy who can't afford a limited or a overland or who doesn't want all of the extra options. I know it is just business and nothing will change, but it still bugs me.

The way Jeep has set up it's new packages for the Laredo model really does screw the little guy. But if you were in the market say for the Laredo X, which is now just a base Limited, it does make sense to drop the Laredo X and make it a base Limited. Such is life though LOL

Loveracing, not trying to tell you what to do sir but if I may give you some advise.

Take a look at your budget and maybe investing $35 for a membership to accessfund.org to get a friends and affiliate member # could get you into a limited trim. I live in El Paso, TX which is a very small market and while I have about 3-5 dealers to buy from none of them would negotiate any lower than 1% below invoice with the affiliated #. Which is bs because that 's the minimum is supposed to be and they get an additional 2% for them from Chrysler for every buyer that uses that program. So I shop outside of my market and eventually got advised to contact a dealer that got me between 5-6% below invoice. Yeah I have to travel to get it but it will be a mini vacation and a new vehicle for about $2k less than what I would have had to spend locally.

Maybe a savings like that could move you into the next trim level. Of course only you can make that call but is food for though. Either way hope everything turns out well.
