Its ridiculous that a brown leather is always having productions issues. You can order saddle in BMW's for a long time... no demand issues... whats the matter with Chrysler???

Re: official Saddle interior and new 730N RHR as an option

The 730 is now an option you must pay $305 for it in the summitt. this has flip flopped 3 times, 1st an option on overland, then std on summitt and now an option on summitt.
In my opinion it's New Saddle or nothing. once u see it, u gotta have it! dont like what jeep did though by making new saddle ONLY available in the "summitt" (from mid december on) with only four ext colors now called "25R" package which adds a few options and makes them standard,(acc, blind spot, rear cross path and adv collision warning,) but adds $4000 to the price plus the hemi cost of $1995 totaling to $48,465! I bought one only because i worked in the industry, know the "deal" and delt with the Gen Sales mgr from the get go and its a cash deal. I paid $2000 under invoice, YEA! they make their money on their "hold back" + "the reserve" + "a little something-something" plus any trade u may make. as of a few days ago you cant order anything with saddle int (as per Jeep) because of the excessive interest. If you were lucky to order one early u got a overland with hemi and just new saddle which was 25P package your lucky and saved yourself $4000. trust me i sat with this guy while he called all 25 dealers within 300 mi of ny that had new saddles "in Transit" with the 25p package, every one was sold! If i couldnt find one with new saddle, overland or summitt i was buying the new explorer limited with rear bucket seat and center console, but wow it was $48,500 optioned that way! Way to close to new summitt price for it to be arbitrarly dont you think?
AND JUST ANNOUNCED A 70TH ANNAVERSERY MODEL!
Way to many big changes for a new modle year redesign vehicle

2011 Grand Cherokee Overland Summitt
Hemi pkg
Brilliant Black
New Saddle int (and new saddle dashboard)

skier141 - The $4K includes non-standard Overland options that most people want anyway.... ACC. So the Summit really isn't that much more.....

$2K under invoice..... I'll order another. At that price I'm sure we could round up a dozen or two orders for that dealer.....

Re: Its official Saddle interior and new 730N RHR now available!!!

For those that were curious from before on why my POC order sheet showed the 730N RHR as a credit, I was able to confirm today that my order does infact show Black/New Saddle interior and the 730N RHR radio. I was assigned a VIN several days and just got off the phone with the hotline and she confirmed for me that those are the options in my Jeep. As for why I was credited $465 for the RHR who knows and who cares probably just a glitch like Milous said. All that matters is thats whats slatted to be in my Jeep.

For those that didnt see it this is my POC sheet and you can see for some reason it actually credited me money back for the RHR. Sounds good to me if they wanna pay me for the upgraded radio ;-)

Hi. This site is a really great source of info. Thanks everyone.

I'm considering getting my first ever JGC and like many here, was waiting for the RHR to become available to order along with Saddle interior. Now that Saddle is on restriction for the Overland, what are the odds it will come off? I've heard variously Saddle was restricted due to supply issues or for marketing purposes to make the Summit more exclusive. My thought is, they are clearing inventory of existing Saddle with the 430N before opening ordering for Saddle w/ 730N RHR. Doesn't seem to make sense for marketing purposes since the Summit Saddle configuration is already unique and really, who runs out of brown leather?

Bottom line: Do I purchase my dream Overland w/ Saddle + 430N assuming Saddle goes away or try to be patient (after waiting months, the idea of waiting another 2 months at the least just to wait 10 weeks for an order seems a bit much)?

Thanks again, everyone. This place rocks.

Re: Its official Saddle interior and new 730N RHR now available!!!

Saddle is not being held up for marketing reasons, it's purely a supply issue. When large numbers of unexpected orders come through it can take awhile for suppliers to ramp up production.

As far as your purchase goes, my advice is to get exactly what you want - EVEN IF you have to wait a couple more months. Believe me, when the day comes that you finally get your vehicle, you'll be glad you waited. And if you get a vehicle before that, without the feature(s) you want, you'll later regret having not waited.

RHR update - it looks as though production of the RHR may not get underway until March 1st or 2nd... a few units might get out ahead of that.

Dang. So does that mean that any car ordered on the 12th or later that ordered 730n is going to sit in D or D1 status for a long time until those radios are available? I guess they would have to.
