JgCoSgIrL HELP!!!!

I am being very bold and out of character, but I am desperate!!! My '96 Grand Cherokee died today-the 4 wheel mechanism went and is not longer able to be driven. But, now I have no wheels!!! I called my dealer and he is going to look into this situation further. In the mean time, is it possible for your friend to check into it? My vin # is BC662805 and has been in JB for a month or more-probably 2 going on 3 months. If he cannot, I truly understand and please forgive me if I have stepped terribly out of bounds. I am just desperate!!! Thanks for listening!!!

Re: JgCoSgIrL HELP!!!!

Done, I sent him an email...

I am so sorry to hear that you are STILL waiting! My goodness We'll don't feel to bad, mine is sitting in Seattle, the shipping company just dropped it off at the port on Friday, and it didn't make this sailing! They had a shortage of containers. WTF!!! 10 May is the new date that it will make it on the boat. 2011 isn't going to well for me... :*(

Re: JgCoSgIrL HELP!!!!

Girls, girls (JgCoS and Candy) - it's just plain NOT RIGHT that you do not have your Jeeps yet. This is crazy!

Here's hoping that the ownership is all the sweeter for having to wait so patiently. I know I'm sure enjoying mine, and my wait now pales compared to what each of you have had to put up with.

Re: JgCoSgIrL HELP!!!!

JgCoSgIrL-Thanks SO MUCH!!! I appreciate the help!!! I am sorry to hear yous is till tied up. I do hope it comes soon!!! I totally understand you frustration!!!!

J13tv, JgCo SgIrl found me, but thanks for the tip! It may come in handy later!

DJ- I started to hear a noise in January and took it to a reputable garage and they found the 4 wheel drive mechanism was going bad. It was driveable, but it was on borrowed time. And as luck would have it, the garage owner liked my car and was willing to buy it as is. He was very kind to allow me to keep and use the car until my new Jeep came in, but today, the mechanism went. I have it inside the Jeep and will be towing it to his shop on Monday. It is his now. It is no use me keeping it as it can't run very far and is now really unreliable and I do not want to be left stranded on the side of the road. He will fix her all up and she will be as good as new. If I were going to keep her I would get her fixed up, but I was going to buy a new GC anyway before this problem surfaced. I just wish my new one would come in!!! It has been built for months!!!

I will keep all of you posted. Thanks so much for all of the help!!! I am overwhelmed!!! What a great group of people and a great site!!!

Good plan Candy Girl. I sold my 96 GC to the repair shop owner that serviced it for the past 11 years.

Thanks, nek121328. I felt really lucky to have this happen. So much easier than going thru trying to sell it myself. And, the guy has been just great!

Damn! I was just wondering if you got your ride yet. How long is it now? I promise it is worth the wait. I am in love with my Summir

Re: JgCoSgIrL HELP!!!!

Joebinotto-the vehicle has been built since 2/26/11. It did go to a vendor for the chrome package, but this is just too much!!! Good to hear you have good things to say about your baby. I appreciate the thoughts.

Cherodude-Thanks for the support!!! I am trying to stay positive. My dealer is going to get in touch with Chrysler today. I think the fact that I now no longer have a ride may help-at least I hope so. There is no reason that it should take this long!!! It is like they forgot it is there!!! I will keep you all posted.

By the way, I need to rent a vehicle for a few days and was able to get a Grand Cherokee! I hope it is an '11. I will get it later today. Let you all know what I think of that one!
