Now that the Tech Pkg are here, why not start a new thread with these photos.

I took more photos today of the EVIC while using the ACC. I'll post them once I get on my home computer tonight. I'll put them on this thread and I will also start a new one. Good idea.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I called today to make good on my promise that if I did not have a build date and delivery date by December 1st I was going to cancel my order.....Well let's just say the dealer wasn't happy at all. He actually said he wouldn't do it. I asked him the following question "Do you think American Express will side with a Platinum Charge Card holder or you especially considering you altered the contract and put in plain english order to take 6-8 weeks."

Now he swears up and down he will have complete information for me no later than this Friday. I guess we will see. I wasn't trying to be an ass to the guy, but come on people. This is getting pretty ridiculous, I don't want a miracle, I want to have accurate and truthful information.

Edit: Probably should mention that the deposit was paid with my AMEX and I Ordered 9/21 or so.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

^^good for you. I told them yesterday I'd give them 7-10 more days to me a est delivery date....jeep that is. I really, really want a grand but I can't see waiting anymore than 3-4 months. I've never had a order take this long...but then again I've never ordered from Chrysler.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

again.....your vehicles would have been impossible to be built before 11/16. You cant use your order date when you knew that. It just blows my mind. Its only been 2 weeks since saddle and tech have been in production. If I ordered a vehicle in Sept. and knew some of the items I ordered were late availabilty and not going into production until Nov 16.....I wouldnt expect that truck by Dec 1st. The original availabilty that my dealer told me for the tech pack was in the middle of Dec. Im sorry...but you guys ordered your Jeep knowing that. Just trying to be the sane, completely nuetral side of this......LOL.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Here we go again.... We knew it was late availability. Most of us did not know mid-November build when we ordered in September. The WK2 started assembly when ? May? June? September seems late enough. When they started accepting orders then, we assumed October build since our dealers don't know shi!t. Only on here did we learn, AFTER ordering, that builds didn't start till 7 weeks after we ordered. And then, they continue to make Laredos and Limiteds instead of cranking out all the ordered Saddle interiors and tech packages that have been back-ordered for 7 freaking weeks. The demand arguement doesn't fly when you have 7 weeks from date of order to date of production. They should be able to get all the stupid parts by then. That is what is unacceptable and pissing us off.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Im not arguing with you guys....just an impartial view here. FWIW.....I was told by the local Jeep dealer in Sept. that if I ordered the tech pack that it MAY not be built until after the middle of Dec. Not knowing when you ordered really has nothing to do with the situation...since you learned the truth as soon as you joined here. You know(now) that production of those didnt start until 11/16...so your 7 week backorder argument really has no grounds. Its really just now 2 weeks.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Yes, its only two weeks, but they aren't building only those backorders now. They are building unsold Laredos for dealer lots, or sold orders with recent order dates. THEY SHOULD BE BUILDING NOTHING BUT THE BACKORDERS FROM SEPTEMBER, and they had 7 weeks to get the necessary parts to build them all!

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I have no idea what the logistics are like when building a vehicle, what parts they are waiting on etc. But Im pretty positive its not a conspiracy against the tech/saddle orders from JG. You guys have sold orders that they want the money for. Im sure they will build them as soon as humanly possible.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

NO NO NO NO!!!!! When I ordered 9/17 I was told 6 to 8 weeks. The dealer said nothing about 11/16 build for tech. pkg. At that time he said it was available to order and build and I was new to JG. I am sorry, I talked to 3 dealers and got the same info. Not our fault Chrysler was giving out false info and our disgust and our frustration with delays......off my soap box....
