OMG Impatient...

Hey gang,

I ordered a 2012 limited 4x4 with Hemi, Deep Cherry Red, lux package, 20" on about Feb 20th. Its Burning me up inside while waiting. According to the VOTS its in trim status right now, came out of paint yesterday.

Worst part of it all is Im kinda sad about letting my 2002 WJ go when it gets here.

Just a few questions though...

A buddy of mine has a 2011 Ram with the Hemi and the dealer did a flash on his vehicle recently and his mpg increased by about 2 mi. Is there any such flash or anything I should look for or any other I guess you would call "bulletin" upgrades/fixes when I take delivery?

Seeing as I had a set of the WK SRT8 rims (staggered) which did fit on my WJ with shims on the rears, is anyone sure they'd fit on the wk2 or not, with shims I imagine?

Also, not to bug anyone, maybe give you a chance to show off more. As I wait, I just want to see more interior pics with the sunshade open to see how bright it gets inside the vehicle in the daytime/nighttime if anyone can post them? Thanks guys.

With the Overland and the huge sunroof it's bright as, well, the sun. You'll need sunglasses and a visor cap for you and some SPF for your leather interior.

Re: OMG Impatient...

here it was in Chicago and factory fresh, before it was prepped by the dealer.

Re: OMG Impatient...

i like to leave my pano sunshade open all the time. will this be bad for the leather after awhile? what should i do to protect it?

what about adding clear tint to the pano to keep the sun from coming in? worth it?

Re: OMG Impatient...

Get some Adams leather conditioner. It has a 65 SPF. Its not cheap, but neither is your leather.

I feel for u man... I ordered mine the exact same day as u. Although I am in a better boat. Mine is unloaded off rail and waiting delivery to the dealer since the past wednesday the 21st. Not supposed to be delivered til the 27th. So it sits 1.5 hrs away for about a week.. Hope u get some faster progress. It seems to take forever doesn't it?

Re: OMG Impatient...

I am picking up today after work. Can't wait. I wouldn't rely on that vots too much. Mine was still in shipment yesterday even know it was delivered to the dealer Monday.

Frustrated, I called the 877 IAM JEEP number today and they informed me that it went on the rail car today with an estimated delivery date of 5 April. EXCITED!!!!!!!

Look that baby over before handing the cash over... Hopefully the same guy doesn't handle your jeep as did mine...

Re: OMG Impatient...

Light frost beige interior. In over one year of ownership my sunshade has been closed once, to see if it worked. Leather is doing fine other than damage I have done to it.
