Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

I am asking an opinion question and would genuinely love your responses. Here is where i stand with my jeep:

As of today, 7/1/15, the vehicle hasnt even entered D1 status. Meaning even if it started up today and took an exact 4 weeks till delivery, I wouldnt get my vehicle till August. So lets assume a mid august delivery. My current vehicle gets transferred by the middle of next week (7/8/15). So i will be without a vehicle for almost a full month. This makes my work life extremely difficult.

After speaking with my dealership, we have figured out the following options:

1) Ride out the wait, figure out alternate modes of transportation, get the vehicle whenever it is delivered.

2) Choose an Overland off of their lot. Will not have the HK stereo like I ordered on mine but the rest should be similar (maybe an ext. color change).

3) Upgrade to a Summit on their lot. This would give me the HK stereo plus the benefits of the Summit. It would be an extra 2k plus I would have to have a dark interior. I chose the Light frost interior on my build jeep. Summits only come in the darker interiors. So i would be getting all of the tech that I wanted but the color schemes would have to change.


I know this has to do with personal tastes but I would love to hear your opinion. I am aware that there are threads comparing the Overland to the Summit. That isnt the questions that I am asking. What would you do in this situation?

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

It depends on how badly you want EXACTLY what you ordered. I order all of my vehicles because the dealers never have them configured exactly the way I want them, and as expensive as all vehicles are nowadays, it has to be just right. I wouldn't want to be thinking a month from now, "If I had waited, I'd be taking delivery of my custom built Jeep". Besides, on the window sticker it reads, "This vehicles was specially built for..."

The jeep that I ordered wasnt anything too custom:

Overland 4x2
V6
Maximum Steel
Light Frost Interior
Adv. Tech
HK System


The Summit would have all those features plus more. The catch is the interior color. Having never owned a dark color interior vehicle before, this one would be new to me. The plus side is, dark interiors dont show dirt and age as much as the lighter ones do.

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

I'd base my decision on how long I planned to keep it. If you're in for the long-haul (5+ yrs) then I'd wait and get exactly what you want. The commuting/work issue stinks but you could probably rent a car for a month for $500-1,000 which isn't that big of a deal long-term. If you figure you'll trade it in for something else in the next 2 yrs, then maybe you go for option 2 or 3. Out of those, I'd probably lean towards 3 just for the HK stereo (although I personally don't really care for the Summit styling). The radio is about the only thing I don't love in my 2014.

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

I'd get a summit. I have a 14 overland with light frost interior and its dirty as hell and looks like crap. But I prefer black interior...

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

If you really can't wait for the build, go with option 2 and purchase ( or have the dealer throw in ) the stereo. I believe it cost less then the extra 2k on option 3 ?
And if you do go with opt - 2, I would still consider a dark interior...

I was one of the lucky ones, I ordered in March and took delivery in April.

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

Im only going to have this car for 3 years. I have a high turnover rate with vehicles...except I mainly just keep getting newer jeeps.

I have a work trip in houston in a couple weeks. While im down there I am going to visit my dealership and see what they have in stock and map out the numbers. If they have a white Summit with a black or possibly brown interior, might just pull the trigger (if the numbers work out).

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

Aren't they running a group buy in the Houston area? Check into that if you're going there. They may have what you want, and possibly at a better price.

That's exactly who I ordered my jeep from. Mark Gusman has been incredible to work with. I'm going to talk with him and discuss different options

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

Update: Ive learned that my vehicle isnt going into production for atleast a week. Which would put the delivery date to mid august at best. Going to speak with the dealership in a week about possibly just buying a Summit off the lot.

If youre planning on ordering an overland, avoid the beige interior and more importantly the upgraded HK stereo. Apparently those are the two items combined that created the longest delays
