Jeep won't let dealers order black?

The dealer I am talking to made it clear that because of the earthquake in Japan that they can't order and black (and a few other colors). I took it as a ploy and blew him off. Anyone heard about this?

There is a thread on here that mentioned a shortage of paint pigments due to the earthquake.

Re: Jeep won't let dealers order black?

Milous confirmed...due to the earthquake, the vendor in Japan supplying pigment for serveral dark colors will impact and delay orders. Milous went on to say, Dark Charcoal Pearl is not one of the impacted pigments.
