Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

as Jeep SRT8 forum participants to find out what the hold up is?

We could have Scott write a letter/email to Cryco. asking them, as the representative of 1000 JeepGarage members and ordering customers, for an explanation of the delay and to get an answer of when production will start.......

I am excited as anyone else who has WK2 SRT8 on order, but I also need to know if I am going to be able to own it while I am still young.......

Just a thought.....

Chrysler is usually reluctant to discuss information regarding production delays and the reasons thereof. There have been a lot of SRT8 vehicles advancing to D1 recently, which would indicate that the start of production is not too far off.

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

For what it is worth, I spoke to a Sales Rep yesterday and mentioned that I understand from the Forums that the SRT8's are on Hold, and he said he wasn't aware of that. He said that he just recently placed an order in the ordering system, and it took the order. He said if they were on hold, the system would not have taken the order. I dont' know if that is how their system works...just throwing this out there.

BostonDMD, not to add insult to injury but since I assume you ordered the tow pack to tow your race car I think that's one of the things that may delay your order. Seems that is now listed as late availability and others on the WK2 section have commented their dealers can't even place an order with the tow package. Looks like a supplier issue if it effects all versions.

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

The one that I ordered at the beginning of July was originally for dealer stock. They tried to switch it to be my personal order and it would never take it. I have now recieved a call from the dealer saying that it has now accepted the change. So maybe it was because they were on hold and now they aren't? I sure hope that's the case!!!! I'm ready for this thing to get built!!

I saw this too, I can't help but think they are full of it! They started off saying that they had six coming in next week, now that number has jumped up to 12. At least I hope they are full of it, that is a major screw up if they can get 12 dealer stock and an already sold built to order Jeep can't be produced!

Re: Isn't there anything we can do collectively......

My dealer said, his rep told him NOT TO ORDER DEALER STOCK as they won't be honored until commited sales orders are fullfilled.
Maybe that dealer took in that many orders and now they have cancelled, he's keeping them for stock.
