Some people got D1 status in early November with mid January estimated delivery while others got D1 status dates in mid to late December with delivery also in January.

My dealer was shocked my order went to D status in 3 days. That indicated to him that nothing was on hold (at this time) and they had it tentatively scheduled for a late January or early February build. Now mine is a simple order, Overland 4X4 with V8, no other options so that might have something to do with it.

Then again, I'm probably being an optimist I do need to take delivery before April so I have my fingers crossed.
Humm ok well that would be good news to. I just assumed it wouldnt be till march or even longer from what I have been reading on the forums. So your saying you think things might be moving along a little quicker now?
I ordered mine on the 4th of this month. No saddle interior obviously, but does have adaptive cruise. I was gonna call the dealership on wednesday to see if there is any possibility that I have a VIN assigned yet so I can have Milous track it here on the site for me. Probably not though. Thats awesome to hear yours seems to be moving along quickly!!

As far as how it looks, to each their own.

But my wife refuses to drive an SRT8 due to the obnoxious front end splitter and slammed appearance. I don't blame her. I would put up with it myself except that all the capability of the truck is sold out for the sake of the bigger motor. I simply think there is a better comprimise and shamefully I'm paying Chrysler less than I would for a better option.

Well thats fine I cant say I have ever seen a woman driving an SRT8 anyway. My wife doesnt drive my Z06 Corvette, same difference.

I mean I see what your saying, but just picture it as a Corvette with an SUV body. Not everyone needs to tow or offroad so they made a vehicle strictly for the performance minded people. As I said before I think the 5.7 Hemi is plenty for the Overland. It sounds good and has great power and is basically a good all around motor for that SUV. I know I wouldnt buy it if it had the SRT8 motor. One reason, fuel economy!!! The 5.7 although not amazing on fuel, it does do good compared to the SRT. I sold my 08 SRT8 because of that. Got sick filling it up with premium every 3 days. lol
