Question about time frame from order to D1 status and built.

I know all the basics and general time frames but I was recently browsing the status page and cant believe that there are a couple Overlands on there that were ordered around the same time as mine that are actually built already. There is one Overland that was ordered on the 17th of Jan, went to D1 status is 7 days, and is already built with an estimated delivery of only about a week from now. There are also a couple others that were built within two days of mine that have been built already.
I guess I understand that mine wouldnt go through super quickly especially considering I ordered the newer radio, but what is it about the other Overlands that they can go from order to built so quickly? Does it really make that big of a difference?
I wonder when some of the jan orders with the 730N will start going into D1 status. Im 27 days into the order in D status. The funny thing is I didnt even originally plan on taking delivery till spring time anyway so I dont even know why I care. I guess I just get so anxious :-)

James

Re: Question about time frame from order to D1 status and built.

Just a guess, but with the 730N not being available until March 1, I bet any that are being built with it won't be in D1 status until right before the 1st. I'm debating with ordering another one since the first order was incorrect, but I'm not sure whether to just wait until I know they are already being built with the 730N or if I can slip through very quickly if I'll take a 430N.

Re: Question about time frame from order to D1 status and built.

A vehicle that won't be produced for weeks can be in D1 relatively quickly. There's a number of variables in play- when the dealer submits the order, the open allocation for that dealer (if he's already burned through them), the parts availability for that particular order (if there's a shortage of a given item, it may not go to D1 quickly- if there isn't a shortage, even if it isn't in production yet, it might well be D1 in nothing flat), and that kind of thing.

The Overland I ordered was in D1 status after 6 days. It wasn't actually build for nearly two months, and vehicles ordered afterwards and in D1 later had rolled off the production line before (it looked like the V-6 was holding it up a bit). Even once built, it was a month before it was shipped (due to the September QC issues/inspections).

ok so then what did the expected delivery date say when it first went to D1 status? Reason I ask is because thats when the expected delivery date is given and almost all the delivery dates that were posted on the status page were actually pretty accurate. Did yours just keep getting pushed back or something?

Re: Question about time frame from order to D1 status and built.

I wouldnt say they were petty accurate, if you been watching particular ones the delivery date posted wasn't the original date given. My friend on here has been bumped many times already twice in the last week. It will eventually read the same date when delivered but it was definitely not the first published date given. Delivery dates definitely change..

The first expected delivery date I was was something like Aug 5. There's no way that was possible, the Overlands didn't go into production until Aug 11 or so. I have no idea what the final delivery date was; probably about Oct 5 or something; I ended up buying from dealer stock and canceling the order (apparently the dealership owner drove my original order around a bit once it came in and then sold it).

If the expected delivery date on the order form ends up being correct, it is likely to be more a happy accident than an actual truth from the get-go. Even my dealer was telling me that date usually slips.
