Ordered my Overland today!!

My first Jeep vehicle. I have been driving Audi A4/S4s for the last 13 years. This will be a bit of a change, but I guess two kids will do that to you.

Ordered 2/1/2011
-Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4
-Hemi V8
-Dark Charcoal Pearl
-Black interior
-730N RHR radio

Any chance I'll have it by May 1st?

Oh yeah...that's a more popular color combo. I bet if you never ordered it you could shop around lots and find one as soon as one comes in. Many dealers have jeeps in transit that I bet match ur description.

Congrats! I have the same color combo, it looks really nice. I would say you should have it in 8-10 weeks. That seems to be about the norm so you should make it before May 1st!

Re: Ordered my Overland today!!

This is exactly what I plan on ordering in about 3 weeks. The Charcoal/Black Overland 4x4 Hemi is very rare around here (so rare, I haven't seen one within 200 miles since I started looking 3 months ago). Also the fact that Charcoal is being discontinued on non-WK jeeps has me worried about wait time. I'll be very interested to follow the progress of your order. Definitely sign up as a site supporter and get Milous to track your build status. Congrats!

Re: Ordered my Overland today!!

Congrats. I would be interested to hear what you think after driving it for a month since you never owned a Jeep before & drove Audis so long. You need to check back in. I personally owned three Jeeps in a row during the 90s before purchasing my first foreign made vehicle (Acura RDX) & now coming back to the Jeep.

Re: Ordered my Overland today!!

Nice choice thats gonna be a sweet Overland! Since Milous said the 730N RHR isnt supposed to start production until march 1st I wonder when those of us who ordered the 730N can expect to see our Jeeps built? Basically, if radio production starts march 1st, how long until those are ready to be installed in new Jeeps?

Is that the latest on the 730n RHR? My Overland was re-ordered into the system back on January 14 to accommodate the availability of that nav radio. As of yesterday, the Jeep Information hot line confirmed my truck (by VIN) was at gateline and they confirmed the 730n RHR on their build sheet. They suggested I call again next week with a more accurate ETA although the most accurate ETA would come from my dealer (but I find it easier to get in contact with the hot line). Hopefully I'll see my truck in the Spring, just in time for all the snow and salt to disappear from the Northeast.

Yeah as far as I know the latest info from Milous on the new RHR 730N is that production starts march 1st. Your Jeep is probably in D status which means you got the vin assigned but thats about it. There has been no assignment of build sequencing its just a number on paper right now. Not sure if this is still accurate but this site says average time from date of order to D1 status (which is when your given an approx delivery date) is around 24 days. Tomorrow is 23 days since my order but im only going to assume it will take longer since not only do I have 730N in my order, but Saddle interior as well.
I to ordered mine with anticipation of receiving it in spring time so I dont have to trash the thing with winter salt right away. That way we will have a good 8 months of clean driving :-)
