#7 - www.JeepGarage.org exists
#6 - Chrysler was making money on the Overland, and they don't know what to do when they are in the black
#5 - It had been so long since suppliers delivered parts, some of them forgot the address and got lost trying to make a delivery
#4 - They did a bad job of pricing the trim levels making the Overland overly attractive too many would-be Limited buyers who feel the Overland is a better value
#3 - The custom upholstery stitching for the saddle interior is a very time consuming process and the supply factory is getting backed up. Last week they added 14 children to the payroll which should help alleviate the backorders.
#2 - Drunk assembly line employees had to go through rehab before being allowed to return to the line
#1 - Milous is only one person, he can't build them all!!

There won't be - children tears are used as windshield washer fluid.
