Built/finished on a certain day?

Have you heard that one day is better than the other? If the factory is 24x7 it shouldn't matter, but does it make a difference on the day of the week it is completed? For instance, Friday afternoon has less quality than a Tuesday mid-day.

No. The quality is equally lacking on all days.

Factory isn't 24x7. They work 2 shifts 6 days a week. Last I heard about 320 jeeps are built per shift, per day.

Friday is the best day, everyone is in a good mood and nobody is hung over like Saturday

Re: Built/finished on a certain day?

Go with one built on a Saturday. No quality difference but they pay everyone on OT for that day, so the cost on Jeep is slightly higher on that day, for the same price 😉

But really, quality checks every day is literally the exact same and you'd never know the exact day it gets built. Plus whatever day it does, it will sit in a yard for a day or 2 until it gets shipped

Likely that every major assembly. ....engine , trans, diffs were all built way before the jeep anyway.

Sign up here as Level 4 and the MOTS tracking of your new jeep order will also provide a built sheet. That build sheet documents the exact day your jeep was built. Mine was built on a Tuesday.

Oh interesting... Didn't know that was an option (providing build sheets and such). What is MOTS?
