Top 10 Reason's the Overland is on production HOLD!

To recap, The Top 10 Reasons the Overland is on production hold:
#10 - They need to retrain all the people that has been out of work for months
#9 - They produce a batch for europe
#8 - Its simply been a long time since Chrysler actually had a car people wanted
#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!!

other: 70k+ units have sold already, it's been awhile since Detroit had to produce this kind of volume, particularly on a new rig

5. They need to retrain all the people that has been out of work for months
6. The people that used to work there are no longer available since they had to move out of state.

Re: Top 10 Reason's the Overland is on production HOLD!

I heard they are building the Dodge Durango at the Jeep Plant and aren't currently building Grand Cherokee. Has anyone else heard this?
