I completely agree, there is something in this design that is different from all of the others. I am taking some pictures now and need to run by the dealer to drop off the title to my old car, will snap a pic of the 2 next to each other.

I wasnt sure where to put these pics, but on the third one you can see the sensor for the ACC. Now if I can just figure out how to make the sensor red and flash right and left like the KITT!

No. In fact I'm writing this from a Best Western in NJ. I had TWO orders and I abandoned one of them.

Gotcha. I eventually pieced that together from other comments. Safe travels and enjoy the road trip home. I know I would have a hard time concentrating on the road as my eye wandered all around the cockpit and played with buttons.

Did you decide to stop for an oil change during this mission?

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

My Jeep is completed and sitting in railyard in Toledo Ohio. They completed Friday night (put on side steps, etc there) and if went from Body Vendor Status to Hold Status. I actually called company who now have it and they said they are waiting to put it on railcar but cannot do anything until Jeep changes status to KZ and send over release paperwork. They also told me the have vehicles from 2008 SITTING ON THEIR LOT STILL!!! I have contacted every number I have to get vehicle released and we shall see what happens. I figured maybe it was for QC but when I asked the guy if someone makes sure the vehicles are tested before released he said no. Most of them just sit there waiting for code to be changed and paperwork, NO QC.

What a joke, to be continued but if my vehicle sits there one more day and isn't shipped I am going to lose it on my dealer for not working harder to help me own my $45K vehicle! If I had a customer waiting 3 plus months I would make it a top priority and contact the right people to get it released!

You hit the nail on the head....was to my dealer today and seems as if he has tried every angle but is still getting nowhere. Mine is sitting not to far from yours and Milous says it is moving but he does not know which way......

Sorry to hear that guys, I can absolutlely relate to your frustration and that is what finally made me deviate from my original purchase. Hang in there if that is the exact configuration that you want or look on the lots of your larger dealers if you are starting to get flexible (like myself).

My dealership, as nice as they were, had no ability to move the jeep along. I thanked them for their time and got my deposit back.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Customer support called me today while I was at work and left a message on my phone. They said my Jeep is scheduled to ship 12/31. Again they said it is in storage for quality control.... Really? It isn't because the train schedules out West don't have space, or the factory is too backed up or understaffed? The best they can come up with is that my Jeep is going through more than 2 weeks of quality control that other Jeeps didn't need to go through?!? Stop BSing me Chrysler and tell me the truth already!

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

^^^Exact words used by my dealer today. This is a fair sized dealership, been in business over 40 years because I bought a 1968 Dodge RT Charger, 383 Magnum from them. They talked, in the past 3 days to the district rep., sales district rep., and some VP...they could not tell them where my Overland was and when it would reappear. Why can they not just tell us the truth we are big boys and girls and it would be nice to know whats up. This is ONE SCREWED UP CO...

No. When I saw that the manual suggests first oil change at 3,000 miles, I figured I'd go with their advice. They have every incentive to err on the side of caution.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Maybe your Jeep is missing because big boys don't use bold comic sans font? Sorry, couldn't resist.
