Am I "Lucky"?

So I finally got my VIN from the dealer for the WK2 I ordered back in mid-April...He advised me that he had "good news" and that I was "lucky" that Jeep had decided to build my Jeep since we were at the end of the model year and sometimes they just cancel all the orders at the end of the year.

So I am glad that they are building the Jeep I want and I should hopefully see it in early July but in the back of my mind I'm thinking "maybe I should wait and order 2012...?"

NO I can't think that way! I will go crazy!

Ordered Overland, Mineral Grey, V6, Saddle

Sounds like your dealer didn't have allocation when you placed your order and they are trying to appease you by saying you are lucky to me.

Hmmm, maybe....it did take an awful long time to get the VIN...they explained it to me by saying that "Chrysler often takes an awful long time to update their order sheets"...almost 4 weeks seems pretty excessive though...

On another topic do you know if the whole trucking strike thing was resolved...I think it was Allied Trucking?

4 weeks is a long time for a VIN to be assigned, or so it seems to me. The site resident expert Milious would know far better then I. Mine was assigned within 4 days and that was with the order being placed on a Friday. I also ordered a Laredo so that could account for some difference.
