Well to my surprise my dealer called me this morning and told me that my Jeep was released from the factory today... I was nice this time and thanked him for actually calling me. But take a guess what buddy I knew that already. :/

Hopefully you're tracking with Milious - makes the wait less painful - I knew more about my status than the dealer.

They told me tonight that not only is the paint an issue due to Japan, but they also can't get any more chips for nav system (also from Japan). First I've heard of that - not sure if that's truly accurate.

Transport is just as frustrating - I couldve pushed mine from MI to GA faster than it took via rail. It sat in ATL alone for (5) days before my dealer rec'd it - amazing as it was only 20 miles away. Apparently they recently changed transport companies.

Buuuuuuut, now that I have it I would say it was worth the wait - you'll love it!

Best of luck with the wait --- and thanks for serving!
I'm actually not tracking through Milous. I have 1. A friend that works for Chrysler. 2. My dealer and 3. The worst of all patience

The best things about not having your new Jeep yet...

-Don't have to worry about whether to wax or even use a clay bar and what brand to use
-Don't have to figure out why it squeaks when you tow, and what to do about it
-Don't have to keep watching the AVG MILEAGE display on the EVIC and wish you got more
-Don't have to research the best sunshade
-Don't have to figure out what product you should use to protect your wheels
-Don't have to decide what parts to apply clear bra if any
-Don't have to decide whether to "debadge"
-Don't have to figure out if you want to tint the front to windows and if so, what shade
-Don't have to figure out who makes the best floor mats and cargo mat
-Don't have to decide whether and how to protect the leather
-Don't have to decide what grade gas to use
-Don't have to drive less than 55mph for 300 miles to break it in




I've only had my Jeep a little over a week and so far, I can say I LOVE IT!!! Hopefully, yours will arrive soon and the frustration will be over.
LOL this is FUNNY but SO TRUE!!! Actually I already decided I am going to get a clear bra installed when she gets here (what parts I don't know LOL), along with front window tint, and I already bought the front, rear and back cargo mat for my Jeep (Weathertech is what I went with)... now if the Jeep would just get here!!!

Sorry I don't know how to multi-quote in one post LOL :P

Good news JgCoSgIrl!! Mine took a move today as well! It went from the "Ramp Compare Inventory" status to "Hold Released" and new Future dates indicating it will arrive on April 25. I hope it is true! I will know tomorrow since it is scheduled to be on a rail car. Otherwise, it will be a May delivery!

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

Hang in there! I ordered in July and took delivery 5 months later, almost to the day, in December.

It will be worth it.

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

WOW!!! I don't know where to begin!!!! I know the frustration JgCoSgirl-I am there with you!!! Mine was built on Frbruary 26th, sent to the vendor's like Joebinnotto, but mine is not moving in any way. You seemed to have gotten more action from the Jeep people. I called them today and they were better than past phone calls, but no one knew anything! They told me to contact my dealer, so I will try tomorrow even tho they said they would contact me when they heard anything and I am sure they will, but now I am getting VERY angry and frustrated as you understand. Where are you? I am in NJ. Can it be a geograhical area? By the way, they at Jeep mentioned that it could be a paint problem, but mine is white and built any way. I have the built sheet from Milous. And, I, too, want to thank you for your service!!!

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

@Candy Girl - Jeep & the dealers are milking Japan's tragedy to have more excuses for their own incompetence (IMO). I recall somewhere you order the chrome package as well. Is that true? I think that is why our orders are taking so long. I recall Dan indicating it would add 4 weeks to the delivery (& I believe he may be conservative with that estimate). I don't want to be negative and really have been very positive during my wait. The only thing that angers me a bit is the lack of communication & info between the factory, the dealers, and ultimately us the consumers.

Thank You CandyGirl, I am in Anchorage Alaska, which won't help my wait time either. It's going to take longer to get to Alaska then it is to NJ where you are from.

Mine has been built since March 17th, so what could be holding it up now? If it has been released from the plant as the dealer says, then it should be moving right via rail car??? NOT SITTING AT THE PLANT!!! UGH I hate this "not knowing" factor!!!

It is going to be worth it, I know it! I need to think positive, I'm not having to pay for insurance right now... and all I have to fill up with gas right now is a Subaru. But I want my Jeep for goodness sakes!

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

To add to the existing roster of delay issues, there are now 1-2 day delays getting finished vehicles onto train cars, according to the Wall Street Journal.
