The problem with that is I was told I would have my jeep by the beginning of Dec....don't see that happening...

I was as well...I was meaning that I am going to give it until then to have a concrete (and timely) delivery date for mine. I actually made the dealer write 8 week delivery contract on the "deal sheet," so I am going to have no qualms backing out if it goes on much longer. Plus, I put the deposit on my AMEX so I can just dispute it if necessary.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I think Jeep's focus right now is their marketing program. Is anyone else sick of seeing
the commercials all night long !!

No.

It's what's selling them and because they're selling, I have to build them, which forces Chrysler to let me into JNAP every day to do my job.

You should be happy to see a Chrysler commercial. Previously (Daimler days) they marketed their vehicles for about a month or two and after that, you didn't see ads anymore. People forgot about them and the whole company... which is the reason why they lost market share.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

What the point of advertising something you can't deliver ? Makes no sense.

kinda my feelings too. I understand the part advertising plays in a company. But it almost seems Jeep was not quite ready for this new launch, but their
marketing dept. was.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I strongly suspect Chrysler had no idea how much pent up demand there was from those who were waiting for the WK to be replaced before buying a new GC.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I have no idea what I'm talking about, BUT my gut tells me that everyone that ordered around 9/18 will be D1 by the end of the week....

They didn't. There has been pent up demand for a rightful Grand Cherokee since the WJ went bye bye.

This one customer I had at my valet job saw my Chrysler badge and asked me where I work. I told her, she said she couldn't wait for her lease to be up because her WK didn't feel like a Grand Cherokee should to her. The new one does! She started hating it shortly after she leased it. Poor thing.
