I had a chance to do that several years ago at a Ford plant but never went. Wish now that I had. Has to be an amazing process!!

Man, all these orders being placed and built, and not being able to order until March/April, has me feeling like...


I just keep telling myself Milous is going to come here and post that the Rubicon Recon, replacing the HR I want, is going to have a hemi...and I'll still be able to afford it.

New model year launch always starts out slow, even when there are few changes. Theres always some supplier that isn't quite ready or a robot that needs tweaking.

You want to see a real cluster, wait till a new model launch. It can take weeks to get up to speed

If the ones of us that don't have a clue could only see part of the challenges you face! Not only do you have to see that the changes are made but you are also under production pressures from management as well.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Ordered Aug. 20 on a Saturday. Order placed on Aug. 22 Monday. FCA gave their blessing on the 23. D status on Aug. 26. D1 status on Aug. 30 if I remember. Aug. 31 VIN #- 1C4HJWCG5HL513928. Stuck in D1 and yes Hypergreen. Hope to get Level 4 membership next week. Dealership is very small and older. Small town, Dunkirk, Indiana.....Fuqua Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Super nice place. Keeping it local was important. Overrode shopping forever or going out of state for a few hundred dollars. Heading was glad for the order.

2-doors are only built on Tuesdays and Saturdays and hard rocks only on the 5th Tuesday of the month assuming said Tuesday is immediately following a full moon.

Send a huge envelope of large denomination unmarked bills to @Milous and your request will be forwarded to the proper people in the WFWD (Wrangler Features Wish Department)
