Surprising delivery time
 
I ordered my GC on December 1st and was told to be prepared to wait for several months. Today, just over a month later, the dealer said it is "in trim" and to expect it around January 20th. Seven weeks is way way better than I expected. Maybe my mundane selections helped.

I still haven't seen one in my color, Natural Green Pearl Coat, although I have searched up to 500 miles away, so am hoping I like the look.

Thats good to hear. I placed my order this morning who knows maybe things are moving along a little quicker now.

BTW The dealership I ordered mine from had a new green overland with light beige interior sitting there. I will say I actually really liked it.

The natural green is a nice color... Our dealer had one on the lot and I also just saw one on the highway last week. It is very dark...almost black on a gray day until you are very close to it. Very classy looking IMHO. :thumbsup:

Your order is much like mine, except OL with ORGII. It also had a quick build/delivery time, about 7 weeks, after I bailed on a previous never, never order that was 13 weeks old.

It does look dark under low light, such as this pic at dusk. Sunlight brings out the green much more.

You're gonna love it! :thumbsup:

Definitely due to what you ordered. I ordered my Overland on September 27th and I still don't have it. It's been sitting in a rail yard in Philly since December 14th. How frustrating!

Talked with a rep from the "2011 JGC Information" department for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. Telling my I'm "at the gateline, sequenced for build" but I have no delivery date assigned. Apparently this puts me between D and D1 status. Didn't think this was possible. Still guessing it's the saddle that's holding me up.

Has anyone with the following options been able to take delivery between 8-12 weeks from order?

4x4 Hemi Overland
Brilliant Black
Saddle
Tech
Chrome

Just frustrating

There is a green/biege at dealer near me. Pics aren't that great, but a start.

I spoke to a dealer today and he told me that if I am not ordering saddle interior then the wait would be right around 7 weeks or so. Lucky for me I am not going with the saddle. I did see in person and it is very nice but I'm not going to wait for it.
