Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

so based on all the latest comments it looks like there aren't any more delays for the mineral gray exterior and saddle interior? now if they would just start allowing orders for the RHR radio I could place my order!

How do you figure that? My dealer just told me again yesterday that saddle interior is the major hold up with my order.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Tick tock, tick tock... The waiting is starting to get to me.... Just read an article about how many suppliers have either gone out of business or have trimmed down to the bare bones and how this is effecting the auto industry. I'm assuming this is part of the issue with why it is taking so long for them to build our orders...

They were telling me 7-10 days for the train to get to Colorado so I would add a couple of days to that to get to Calif...

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Have waited a long time so a couple of days is OK - like the song " Don't worry, be happy . . . . "

I'm going in today to talk to mine - over the phone he says that everything is available for order and it should take 8-10 weeks. We will see - if he's just BSing me to get me into the dealership again I'm going to go to another dealer...

He's most likely full of crap on all counts. Within the last 24-48 hours we have had eyewitness accounts that the system is locking out saddle orders. We have also seen extended delivery times and now we've got the holiday production schedule to factor in. I think anyone ordering right now has got to be realistic in their expectations: no one knows with certainty which radio will ship, when saddle will be off restriction, or when a vehicle will be built. It's all part of the fun!!

Heck, when I was sitting with my dealer placing my order on Tuesday, he said that the factory rep had said that the Pentastar was now on restriction! We're in the middle of a genuine silly season. Those with a low tolerance for uncertainty should probably continue to hang tight.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Was out getting a few things this AM and stopped at dealer before returning home. He looked up my Overland and had what Milous had reported yesterday plus "To be delivered to dealer 12/24/2010". They are closed tomorrow. Sooooo..., if this is true, we will be picking ours up Monday OR NOT..

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

My sales rep told me yesterday that mine has been shipped and est arrival date is 1/1/11. He told me that they place a priority on so it could arrive a few days earlier from the train depot. Hopefully by mid week, but I am holding my breath on that one. The long wait is almost over, 13+ weeks since the order was placed.
