How on Earth is that possible?!? I was D1 status before you even ordered. Is that something the dealer told you when you ordered? Is it actually built already?

That is probably my favorite combo, BTW. If I wasn't too cheap to wash my car every few days, I would have gone with that!

Oh, and you would think that combo with no other options would be something I could find but there isn't one available within 500 miles and none of the local dealers have a stock order in the pipeline.
Sounds like we went through the same thought process, mjw. I do not have a single regret about the package I wound up with; in fact, I like it more than the one I ordered because the one I found on a dealer lot was identical to my order with one exception-- this one had the ACC package that I had not ordered. You are going to seriously dig Mineral Gray and black leather.

So, if the DC area is not too far for you to travel for a pickup, your exact vehicle is already on order in the pipeline through my local dealer. Everything is the same, down to the exact dollar amount on the invoice. This order was placed on 12/21/10. When I called my dealer to request a deposit refund, I told him I would let other potential interested parties know about this order. FYI.

PS: When I called to update my local dealer, he told me that a VIN had been issued on my order, so it made some quick progress through the system...

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

Alright well I just got back from the dealership. Good news and bad news, but I think in the end the good news out weighs the bad.

Ok so even after explaining to the salesmas the situation with saddle he informed me they can get it ordered and I even told them to double check before I come in. Typical dealership ofcourse they dont and they come back and say you are right it cannot be ordered and its done, cancelled, no longer a interior option on the GC's. They then told me they had a Overland ordered but it was black exterior with saddle interior and had the mopar chrome package which I didnt want either. Anyway, I didnt want a black car, and I didnt want to pay several hundred for a chrome package just to be able to get the saddle interior. Either way I have always loved light tan interiors and loved the new dark frost beige and its contrast in colors between the tan, wood, and dark brown upper dash/steering wheel. Gorgeous!

So I am proud to say that user Nbtstatic sold me with his absolutely amazing pictures and I ordered a new Overland V8 4x4 Dark Charcoal with Dark Frost Beige interior, pano sunroof, and adaptive cruise tech package!!!!!

The sale price is $41,225 + tax/title/license and I think I did VERY well. That was several weeks of email battling with sales managers all over the Chicago area and turns out I got the absolute best price from the dealership literally 2 miles from my house. I couldnt be happier.
Thank you guys for the information and especially to Nbtstatic for posting all those incredible pictures of your charcoal/light beige Overland!!!

I will post more info when I get it.

Thanks,
James

OT, but you guys are going down tomorrow night. Good luck!

And I like the mineral grey myself. The charcoal is sweet, but it's gonna be hard to keep it clean.

haha how did you know of my bad habits? maybe you remember me from cherokee srt8 .com? I think I had a different username over there but yes I did have a 2008 SRT8 as well and a few other cars inbetween. This one I hope to keep for a long time and its the first car I have ever purchased brand new. My wife is pregnant and a SUV sounds like it might fit our future just perfectly. Especially this one :-)

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

I know you from JU and the red site.

You did a nice projector retrofit and the power folding mirrors to your 05 and I remember you buying the 08 Red Rock (which was a beaut I might add).

Wow im impressed! Yes that was all me. Speaking of which I wish the U.S. version of the Grand Cherokee had the power folding mirrors. Not required, but cool nonetheless. Believe it or not there are several others cars I have owned since those as well. I buy used and try to get the best prices possible. enjoy them for however long, then take my time and sell them right. I have actually done very good considering the economy. The latest was a 2006 C6 Z06 Corvette. Bought it used from original owner with 7,300 miles for $40,500, sold 7 months later for $44,500 to a guy near Denver. BTW that was an amazing car!!! As for the 08 red rock. I bought that for $30,000 used back when the gas prices were ridiculously high and sold for $32,000 to a young guy in my same town. Im surprised to see the SRT8's are holding their value now. You cant touch an 08 for low 30's it seems now.
As for the new Overland, like I said im planning on keeping this one for a long time. Since I bought this one new there is no chance of turning around and selling it for equal or greater. Im in this one for the long run lol. When im done with it I think the wife would love to have it.

James

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

So since I have the order form for my Jeep where do I start to be able to track it? I think I saw something about donating to this site and getting full tracking benefits. Sign me up!! I have my VON number I dont know if that means anything.


EDIT: ahh n/m I found the sticky and I paid my dues. Awesome!!! Sooo glad I found this site!
Thanks,
James
