Re: JNAP Plant Tour


This is the aisle of which I do about half of my work in. Oh and look at our new robots. I hate them with a passion and wish they all would die. Did I mention that they are stupid, and slow everybody down? They take the carts that you see attached to a "pick cell" with a BUNCH of parts so the installers don't have 10 parts in their workstation. Using the pick cell has resulted in much more accurate parts selections! (But the robots were still a dumb idea... it was previously done by a human driving a powered industrial vehicle)



VIN Etch for Engine and Transmission Station.

Re: JNAP Plant Tour

I have enjoyed the photos and comments in the thread a lot. If Jeep ever decides to do an owners event at the plant I would be interested being only 4 hours or so away.

Re: JNAP Plant Tour

Thanks for the pics, I enjoyed them.

Got me thinking, when I bought my 1st Saab, I did the European delivery and it was really cool to see the plant and drive the car where it was made.

Jeep could do this for the international buyers and anyone local wanting to p/u from factory.

Re: JNAP Plant Tour

Thanks for sharing this with us. I am very envious of y'all. An owners' event would be great!

Re: JNAP Plant Tour

Hope you guys took Chevy and Marlon out for a nice steak dinner. And maybe a beer.

What a great thread. Vtail, did you have to clear the overflight? And did you get permission to buzz the tower?

Re: JNAP Plant Tour

I had the opportunity to go unfortunately stupid work got in the way. Chevy's right, I would have asked to test drive the TH2 and then bust right out of the plant onto I-94 on my way to Chicago for pizza, then I'd continue on home.
