V8 Overland w/saddle AND tech package on the lot!
 
So dang it all, in my stubborness I was bound and determined to find a Mineral Gray or Charcoal V8 Overland with Saddle Interior on a lot so that I wouldn't have to order it and wait.... and wait....

At first, I thought this would be an easy task because I often saw them listed when I searched dealerships' inventory. Not so much a piece of cake as I had thought, however. Everytime I called on one that was listed, it was spoken for - someone's order. Drats.

Two months of searching inventories of dealerships within a 90 minute drive to no avail, so I resign myself to biting the bullet, ordering one with the options that I want, and facing the wait time. I went to the dealership on Friday to begin the process and they were going to call me back Monday with information on timeframes, restrictions, etc.

'Lo and behold, I perform one last inventory search on Saturday and there was a Mineral Gray V8 Overland with a Saddle Interior, Tech Package, and Off-road Adventure Package sitting on the lot of a dealership an hour away! I called up the dealer, and it wasn't spoken for! I drove up, they gave me a fair deal for the Jeep and for my trade-in, and I drove off with a jeep that had every option that I had wanted (it had a DVD player, which I did not want, but hey, I'll live with that).

I checked their inventory again this morning, and they have two more (a black and a green, both with Saddle, both V8) on their way to the dealership. Is this a sign that these options are becoming more available?

Yes, 4x4.
There has been at least one black Overland with Saddle Interior 4X2 floating around on the local lots as well.

Congrats and good get!! I'm a fellow and unapologetic member of the Impatient WK2 Owners Support Group. In my case, the extra feature I got was the Adaptive Cruise Control, and now that I've used it, I would have regretted not having it. Enjoy your new wheels, that's a good look.
