Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

This seems to be the unofficial "jeeps in waiting" thread......so I thought I would add my words of wisdom to the fray. My dealer gave me some dates that seem to be pretty accurate at time of my order.

Mine was built and ready to ship on the 23 of Nov....and had a estimated delivery of 11/30. Since then it has traveled to within 100 miles here in MN via rail. (So....in 6 days it made it out of Detroit and to MN....not too bad IMO.) It's running pretty close to the original estimated dates.

I'm looking for delivery by the end of the week.

Unhappy Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

My estimated delivery date just got bumped from 11/29 to 12/13. Still sitting in D1 status. I suspect the first time I'll see mine is passing by it on the train as I'm driving from Colorado to Wisconsin in late December.

I would buck up just because we would all take you more serious In all seriousness it isn't cheap to run a site like this and Milous is often able to provide insight that dealers cannot.

Well worth it. It wont make the wait time any less or any better but at least you will have something to be frustrated at! KNOWING it is sitting in a rail yard somewhere for weeks before it even starts moving. . . . .

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

With the ORAII and tech I was confused as to what I was seeing under the grill. Tow hooks and Im assuming the tech sensor. It look like a simple fender bender is gonna be pricey to fix that sensor. Second guessing my tech order decision since that protrudes quite a bit.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

My Suburban has rear blind spot (radar) sensors. They are located underneath the rear bumper cover on the sides. They are kinda bulky about 1 inch thick 12"x4" in size. I'm only guessing that the GC has something similar.

OK...thanks. I will know what to look for. This tech package is new to me.

Are you trading that Sub for the GC? Having owned a Sub in the past....these are so much nicer to drive IMO. Your new ride looks to have a similar vehicle appearance to mine....you must have good taste.
