Dealer Allotments
 
I wonder do all Chrysler Jeep dealers get their allotments monthly and on the same day of the month or do some dealers get theirs more often say every two weeks?

I think its quarterly they are given there up coming allotment or something to that standard, so they know when allotment would open up in the near future. The dealer your dealing with should be able to to tell you when their next allotment allocation is.

Yes my dealer says he gets allotments once a month on or around the 12th of the month. What I am wondering is if all the Jeep dealers have the same allotment date (the 12th). If they are not all on the once a month allotment then you could probably pick your dealer and improve your delivery time if you are ordering one.

One of the large dealers that I saw had to send his orders in on the 19th.

My dealer was on restriction when I ordered the 31st it was given a C status the following Tuesday about 3 days later when his allotment opened up. They are different it looks like.

I've gotten some more info from my dealer.. When they order cars, they go into the system *when not on restriction*, and the reason mines been at D for the past week+ is that every month, a dealership has to order a certain amount of vehicles. Once all of them get put through (dealer stock/customer cars), the factory will start making them, and the status should be put into the D1 gateline within the next few days. My dealer said all orders have to be in by Sept 1st, but they suspect within the next few days it will be filled.

I have been trying to figure out the whole "restriction" thing...I have read all the posts regarding this issue but can anyone confirm that a V-6 Overland is on restriction due to part shortage or limits set by Jeep??? My dealer keeps telling me that the car is on restriction and has nothing to do with their "allotment". The only option I added was the RER navigation and I find it hard to believe that jeep is running low on quadra-lift and panoramic sunroofs like the dealer has told me.

Any information would be appreciated!!

I dont think anyone but Milous, Marlon, or someone who just ordered one, would know... As far as I know from my dealer, No they aren't... Granted PM Marlon/Milous as they may not read every single post on the boards...
