Order Questions

Is there a "pick it up at the factory" option for special orders? We're ready to order a summit, still debating between engines, wishing the summit had tow hooks. Any input on above items would be much appreciated... Thanks!

AFAIK, there's no factory pickup option. While you cannot get tow hooks on the Summit from the factory, it's possible to install them after the fact, although it requires cutting the lower fascia panel to allow the tow hooks to stick through. There are threads about that in the forum.

Re: Order Questions

Not aware of a factory pick up option. I ordered mine and used Milhous' excellent almost up to the minute tracking feature watching the build and transport to the dealer. This allowed me to be camped out at the dealer as it rolled in on the transport.

Re: Order Questions

Nope, can't pick it up at the factory. Lots of reasons for that.

When I ordered my '14, I knew all of the plant staff and several people on the line, but I still took delivery in Greenfield, MA.

To do that would be a marketing decision, and marketing would have to bear the (non trivial) costs.

Re: Order Questions

Ordered it last night. Summit, 3.6, platinum package, skid plates (not cardboard ones I hope) and heater block. Plan to get the lifetime max coverage and keep it forever.
