That was the date I was given if I wanted a Mineral Gray, but they also said that that shipment was being pushed out a month or 2, so I hope you do not get stuffed around more. They told me not to expect it this year, this is why I switched to the Bright Silver model instead.

The only solution I can think of is I will go buy an overland here for you and ship it over. All you have to do is ship me over a Defender 100 and we'll call it even.

I wish you best of luck getting your new truck. Hopefully things will work out sooner than later.

Re: 9 month wait??

I have a question, not sure if its been asked, but if they stopped making 2011 and now are going to be making 2012. Why is your vehicle slated to be a 2011 made in August and delivered in Nov, wouldn't it be a 2012 then?

Re: 9 month wait??

Because they have said in the past they will keep building all existing orders as they are. If it is ordered as a 2011 it would be built as a 2011.
They can build 2011 and 2012 at the same time.

I expect Jeep were caught short in Australia and Europe by the demand of people who are now cross shopping with Euro brands and choosing the better value JGC.
There seems to be a few Larado and Limited models (non CRD) available. If anyone walked into a dealer in Australia today wanting a CRD Overland, they would be waiting until after March 2012. I am just happy I have a VIN and a confirmed ETA for mine as apparently it is the first and only batch of CRD Overland this year.
I wonder if part of the problem is that the Australian dollar is so high at the moment that Jeep corp are deliberately holding back supply to Australia as they will be losing profit. It also creates a supply demand problem so we are seeing no discounting if you want it thats the price. Opportunity being missed as many people will not wait that long and go elsewhere

Re: 9 month wait??

I doubt it, as they would have arranged the Forward Exchange Contracts a long time ago. They would have pegged the dollar at a set amount and based all of their imports on that. This is how they can protect themselves from the fluctuations. I think they just cannot get enough and are trying to get as many orders to get Jeep USA to make more for us.

Re: 9 month wait??

Looking at WK2jeeps.com.
It appears the production is down 2000 a month.
Think some can be blamed on the Japan earthquake.
And some on the transport dispute.
The rest who knows.
