Sorry, you can't be in the club anymore once you hit "KZ". That's a rule.

Hmmmph. Guess I'll just have to console myself with a new GC in a couple weeks or so.

I can't figure out how there can be some built on the 28th and shipping already and a number of others waiting so long. I have heard that some people that get the extended inspection get a vehicle with 50-60 miles on it. Hoping the added Quality Control would be worth the extra wait, if that is what it is. I wish FedEx shipped it! They have good tracking!

If effective quality control is holding up my vehicle it might make the wait a little easier to take/understand. Any way to find that out now or upon delivery?

I believe if you are one of the "lucky" ones there's a sticker affixed to the driver side window stating such. I've seen that sticker on a couple of JGCs waiting on dealer lots.

BUT, I don't really think that's what has happened. I think it's a shipping issue and we're just sitting in "storage". I sure wish I knew too!

Re: NEW Build status tracking By Milous for site supporters

I'm the lone person waiting on a Durango... can I join your support group?

Dealer said mine was originally scheduled to ship out April 29, but I don't think it has been built yet (no window sticker online). I'm 6.5 weeks in, I've sold our second car, and I'm getting antsy!

Date ordered: 03/13/2014
D1 status date: 04/05/2014

I've been watching the new inventory online...

April 4 - Highest Durango was 484116 and Jeep was 491247.
April 16 - Highest Durango was 500853 and Jeep was 501197.
April 22 - Highest Durango was 503401 and Jeep was 509776.
April 30 - Now the highest Durango is 510811 and Jeep is 515010.

I see there's a couple in transit to my local dealers... their VINS are only 412915 and 467040.

Re: NEW Build status tracking By Milous for site supporters

Well the last guy (Peachy) I denied membership to got nasty. So I guess we better let you in.

I know how you feel on the car issue. My lease ran out last week. I have plans which will get me through another week or two, but after that things get real iffy. My wife and I will have fun car swapping if the JGC doesn't ship SOON.

Re: NEW Build status tracking By Milous for site supporters

My dealer said it would be about 2-3 months, which includes 2-3 weeks shipping to BC, Canada. My sales guy thought it was on track for 2 months, but I think that was just based on the original estimate (though MOTS doesn't have any estimate).

It's a great time to sell an old used car, as many students are done school and looking for a summer ride. I didn't think it would go that soon though!

My VIN is 501###, and I've been in D1 for 3.5 weeks. What about you guys?

Does the VIN sequence mean anything, or is it more the D1 status?

So has it actually been loaded onto a rail car, or was that the 'future' tentative plan?

If it's already loaded, that's great news!

Yeah, you're officially expelled from the "we're sick of waiting" club. Get out!
