Congrats to all future owners.. This truck is absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!

That's great that you got to see your Alpine roll down the line, hopefully you got a photo (for yourself). Almost 200 have been built so far, about 1/2 going to export markets around the the world.

Re: Grand Cherokee SRT8 Alpine and Vapor Editions

I did!.. I can't post bc of the no pics inside the plant thing tho. Which is weird, bc there's tons of video and pics they've taken and posted and allowed the media to post. Anyway, it's actually in repair right now, bc of stupid fitment stuff, and something about the paint on the liftgate. I can't see any of what they're talking about, but it's good to see how quality has become a priority.

And furthermore, I would like to thank you sir for all your info and updates. I almost bought a Mineral Gray 2012 a couple months back when I first joined this forum, but noticed your "AE" tease in the '13 thread and decided to hold out. And now I'm glad I did. It's crazy how some things play out. I couldn't be happier!.. So again, thank you!

Nice, even the bumper is lined up the way it should be.
