V8 Overland w/saddle AND tech package on the lot!
So dang it all, in my stubborness I was bound and determined to find a Mineral Gray or Charcoal V8 Overland with Saddle Interior on a lot so that I wouldn't have to order it and wait.... and wait....
At first, I thought this would be an easy task because I often saw them listed when I searched dealerships' inventory. Not so much a piece of cake as I had thought, however. Everytime I called on one that was listed, it was spoken for - someone's order. Drats.
Two months of searching inventories of dealerships within a 90 minute drive to no avail, so I resign myself to biting the bullet, ordering one with the options that I want, and facing the wait time. I went to the dealership on Friday to begin the process and they were going to call me back Monday with information on timeframes, restrictions, etc.
'Lo and behold, I perform one last inventory search on Saturday and there was a Mineral Gray V8 Overland with a Saddle Interior, Tech Package, and Off-road Adventure Package sitting on the lot of a dealership an hour away! I called up the dealer, and it wasn't spoken for! I drove up, they gave me a fair deal for the Jeep and for my trade-in, and I drove off with a jeep that had every option that I had wanted (it had a DVD player, which I did not want, but hey, I'll live with that).
I checked their inventory again this morning, and they have two more (a black and a green, both with Saddle, both V8) on their way to the dealership. Is this a sign that these options are becoming more available?
