VOTS working?

Does anybody know if VOTS is working again. I searched the forum and found posts saying it was offline as of May and expected to be online again July/August. I tried going to www.jeep.com/vots but it just goes to the main Jeep website. I ordered my Overland a few weeks ago and I am curious on the progress.

If you have enough money for an Overland you have enough money for a Jeep Garage membership level 3 or 4. Purchase that and Milous will track it for you. You won't have to worry about VOTS being up or down. Milous gives you much more detail than VOTS anyway. If you purchase level 4 you will receive a custom build sheet as well.

I would love to join, but it's not worth the griping from my wife on spending the money when you can find out for free. She doesn't understand such things.

Re: VOTS working?

No, VOTS is still not working. There is a backdoor method that can be found via Google, but it does not give very much info and is unreliable. MOTS is the best tracking you are going to get aside from calling your dealer everyday.

Not to get into an argument with your wife but she needs to know that actually you can't get everything that Milous provides for free. When your Jeep is built and ready to ship VOTS will leave you wondering what is going on. This is where Milous shines with shipping details. Plus if your Jeep gets stuck somewhere along the way VOTS will leave you stuck. Milous and Wilx have been known to go behind the scenes to find out what is going on.

Actually, I found out when I ordered my 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited ADII that Milous had more information than even my dealer did. My dealer had general information whereas Milous had specific information.

Very true, I guess my reply didn't convey that. The dealer definitely won't know what train car your vehicle is on or what cities the train passes through!

Re: VOTS working?

There is a bigger reason to become a member then just getting the specific information about your new vehicle.

This is not Jeep's corporate website. It is a private site that is supported by the people who come here. So, even folks who are not waiting for their new Jeep, but are using the site anyway, should be contributing something.

It's the American way ... at least the way it used to be.

I understand and completely agree with everything you said. It's just been tough getting my wife to understand. Thanks for the input.
