Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Ordered 4x4 Overland Hemi all option codes Silver in August 2010. First told it was built and shipped Oct 6th. Then Rep. told dealer that it had been held for inspection. Told it shipped 3 weeks ago and here any day. Tonight told delivery Dec. 7th. Not happy but dealer appears to be getting the run around.

I've been hoping that too, but I'm thinking that isn't going to happen since the average delivery time is 20 days. I'm still hanging out in D1 (according to Chrysler's 800 number and Milous) and I'm 3 days past my est ship date.

But who knows, there's a few folks that ordered in late Oct and early Nov that have had theirs built already and shipped, while other from earlier orders haven't. Just wish I knew who to bribe...

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Jeep just called me back from my inquiry to them a few days ago. They said that the factory is building at capacity, my jeep was supposed to be built this month, but it hasn't started production yet. They said maybe it will be built next month. I asked if they are at capacity, why aren't they building early orders like mine rather than orders that have come in the last month, and she said maybe it has to do with dealer allocation. I said dealer allocation should factor into cars being built for the lot, but it isn't fair to customers who have orders. She didn't have much else to add. This is my first experience buying a car from Chrysler, and I'm not the least bit surprised they went bankrupt. It is clearly run by a bunch of morons. I'm putting the snow tires on my current car when I get home, since it looks like I will have it for much of the winter.
Two more months and I will be able to get my deposit money back from the dealer!

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I think it has everything to do with dealer allocation but I agree with you. You ordered and that is a sale from Jeep's point of view. It's not like your Jeep is going to sit on a lot when it's built.

I'll get my new Carbon Fiber Fog Light Bezels installed, tint the windows, install my K40 RL360 Hidden Radar Detector and then post some good pics!

Let us know how the tech package works ASAP. If it sucks, I'll try to find an Overland on someone's lot!

No problem, will do. The Advanced Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring doesn't get me excited but the Advanced Cruise Control does.

I'll see if I can get in a near collision and test how good that warning is..

Time to go clean out my '05..kinda sad.
