Actual production isn't public knowledge and if I were a company and someone was exposing this info, I might be upset with the person who is.
Given this, what are you going to say when they ask "how do you know this info?"
"A guy named XXXXXX on a forum told me?"

If I am there, I will ask the question, "When will all pre-orders be fullfilled including Canada and Mexico?"
I'd hate to lose our tracking method because of our impatience because WE think production is delayed.
From the time they revealed the Jeep on April 20th...They said late summer availability.
Just sayin......

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

the SRT division is providing the chat format. I have the embed info that Frankie will take care of this evening in the engineers chat forums. Im not sure if its a video chat where we can type in questions and the group will answer them through video or text.

Scott- you are a real asset to our community. Thank you for pulling this off for us. I unfortunately will be out of range of modern conveniences so will not be able to participate. On the tugboat steaming for the Bering Sea and Arctic Circle as of now. Darnit!

One question I would like asked which may not even be relevant but if so could you keep it in mind to be asked for me?

If and only if customer loyalty is put into place, say a previous current SRT Jeep owner loyalty discount is going to be available, will this be a one time thing that is time crucial in it's usage or will it be more like a SRT experience type pass where we have a much longer time frame to redeem said coupon? Also if that is the case would it be something we could combine with other incentives at time of purchase? I believe one way to make us original SRT owners who bought their SRT's brand new from Chryco feel better about pricing would be to offer just such a program.

Good luck guys! Please formulate our thoughts and hold back on the jack ass'd and general buffoonery so we don't look like a bunch of knuckle dragger's!!!

Hey thanks man I appreciate it, your version of the question does make more sense, looking forward to seeing the answer.

Thanks again for taking the time to ask that question the day of.

Nice. I like the polling question idea. Scott - I think we should have two polling questions on the bottom for real time so that Gilles can see them:

1. Have those with pre orders canceled due to price? yes or no
2. You were planning on purchasing at some point but have since dicided to not purchase due to price? yes or no

Do you think they don't already know the information someone is providing??? There are others who can track VINs as well, it's not something super secret. At the minimum, a dealer can provide you tracking at any point that you call/email them with your order info. We just happen to have someone who is willing to do it in a batch, with extra knowledge, and frequently.

I don't see the SRT loyalty rebate thing happening. It would anger non-SRT owners...the market they are trying to break in to, and it would need to be implemented ASAP as many of us will be taking deliveries within the next month or so. If it were to come out AFTER many of us previous SRT owners already took delivery, there would be even more backlash.

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

To avoid both softball questions and like-kind responses, and the opposite of being disrespectful, may I suggest please wording the price question with specifics, ie:

We understand the value comparison to other aspirational high performance SUV's, but can you please explain the aggressive 2012 JGC SRT8 price increase specifically relative to: (1) 2011 WK2, (2) actual production costs, (3) 2012 Chally & Charger SRT8's, and (4) WK1 SRT8?

Schlep. Its s private communication between buyers and dealers. So you can check on yours but that wouldn't expose any info that there is s production delay. In fact. Ask your contact who does your updates what the expected ship date is. I would like to hear his reply. I'm sure it will be as vague as "late Summer"
Point is it's not public info given out to anyone who wants it.

Sary fir typoos .....tuochscrwens Sock!
