Chiv is right: it's going to take a bit of time and you'll get addicted to daily-then-hourly-then-minute-by-minute MOTS and VOTS refreshing. Were JNAP like Amazon, they'd have the product already at the warehouse and ready to ship. But in this case once an order is placed the ubiquitous logistics chain/just-in-time delivery process comes into play. The gang at JNAP have to have all the components of your particular build and then they can sequence it along with the other 1199-ish (not sure if that's pre- or post-3rd shift addition) they build the day yours is built. According to some of the news today there is a slow down, perhaps due to issues at a supplier or down-stream supplier of the seat frames. All that said, it's tough to have all this information nobody had before and remain patient. My experience ordering and reading JG gave me insight into a process with many moving parts, not just at the factory, but supplier and ultimately delivery from JNAP to the dealer via rail and truck carrier.

When it finally does hit actual production, that part will take far less than a day provided no issues on the line/suppliers sent the right stuff.

Take a look at the ordering and pricing thread -- there's more than a few "I need to blow off steam" rants about how long it takes. Seemed like once they got it off their chest, all was at least a little better.

We have our fingers crossed that your CRD build happens soon and that those 30 mpgs turn into 35.

Re: DC metro area group buy

I'm a new poster. Have spent the last two nights reading through this thread and am really excited about saving a few grand AND avoiding haggling with a Dealer. Sounds like a fantastic deal

Thanks for putting this together. I'm going to buy a JGC by the end of the year and would like the contact information with the Koons reps everyone has been working with. Unfortunately, i just joined the forum and cannot PM, yet.

Also, do you all have any pricing info on the successful buys? I think I did the math right on a '14 JGC 4x4 Limited with a Sunroof and Nav but want to make sure.

I live in Alexandria and could not be more excited about this deal.

Thanks!

You should have the correct price if you used the formula below:

Invoice + Destination ($995) x .93 + Dealer Processing Fee ($499) +TTL = Final Price

By the way, welcome to JeepGarage!

Re: DC metro area group buy

Hello!

I learned of this group buy that you arranged, did the math, read the very positive testimonials posted by members who have taken possession of their Jeeps and realized that this is something I must myself act upon.

What more do I need to do/know to participate? I would appreciate it if you could provide me with full details and credentialling information.

Thanks,

JavaJohnJeep
