Who knew modern drills were so intellectually engaged?
So it's come to this now....using the old center punch to stifle the freedom of thought of a hapless drill bit. Smh

I've been checking the tracking page somewhat obsessively. I'm a software developer, it might be better use of my time to write an app to check the page to see if my Jeep had been built rather than doing it myself... Hmm...

It will be my first Jeep although I've probably wanted one since I saw those old comic book Jeep surplus ads and think I even mailed for a catalog (see photo). In high school I worked at a car wash and helped the Foreman repair an old Willys Jeep that was lying in the parking lot for years and got to drive it several times with a plow on it to clean the parking lot of snow. Owned third cousins like a 1974 Gremlin X, 1976 Volare Roadrunner and now a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible to mention a few.
IT's at the dealer! See the post in the 2017 Wrangler thread.

Jeep Chat told me mine was in paint several hours after it was already on a train and out of the yard. So, take that with a grain of salt.

Does anyone know how long "I" status usually lasts? My jeep is now in its third day of inspection.

"entered the shipping process and should be arriving at the dealership between 10/14/2016 and 10/20/2016! ". From jeep chat on 29th SEP

Figuring they gave me the generic 2 week line, how does it take that long for a 11 hour drive to Massachusetts?

Lots of time spent sitting on a rail car, waiting for trains?
