Q: What's the first thing you do after ordering a W2K Overland?
 
A: You sign up as a Site Supporter to the invaluable forum that helped so much with the decision!

This is my first post with the nice little gold badge. I can't say enough how much I appreciate this community.

And now the particulars:


Of course I've been waiting for the 730RHR (Thanks to this site). I've got an iPhone 4 and although I know that the 430N will be getting some updates that may help - it seemed clear to me that the 730N was worth waiting for.

I missed the Saddle Leather "window" - but unfortunately I had become fixated on getting the Saddle/Black interior. I had coveted the Rugged Brown color as soon as the Summit was announced. The ability to get the Saddle interior was the final push to spend the extra $$.

When it was all said and done, it was really simple:

2011 GC Overland Summit
Rugged Brown
ORG II

Fortunately, the TL discount helped (something I discovered on this site!). So the budget worked. Now comes the waiting.

Welcome! Can't wait to see some pics! Hope you can get through your wait without getting the shakes!

It would be funny if Milous could show us how many times each person has checked their build status... I couldn't stop..:D

Basicaly the first thing I have done since ordering the Overland was also donate to this site so that when I get my VIN it can be tracked on here.

Really thats about it. Lots of research and reading on this site, watching youtube videos about the new Grand Cherokee lol, checking out the mods some people do so you know what you want when you get yours.

For me its now just a waiting game as soon as I get word that my overland goes from C status to D status and a VIN is assigned I will be PM'ing Milous so he can add me to the tracking thread.

As far as mods I will be getting the front windows tint matched to the rears, possibly the "sharkfin" antenna as seen in that other thread, OEM slush mats for the winter months, front end clear bra a must right away. Thats all for me.

I was one of the guys that was able to "sneak" in a saddle order on the 12th when the 730N RHR came online. So im pretty excited about that but now the waiting begins.

You can also talk to your dealer to find the current status. When you order its in BA status "pending order", then it goes to C status "tentative scheduling", then to D status where your VIN will be assigned and you can then get your detailed tracking right here on this site.

Congrats on your order!!!

In theory Chrysler will be sending me E-mails tracking the vehicle, so that might give me the same info that Milous will have. Anyway ... it's a great thing that Milous does for this site. My primary motive for going Level III though was gratitude - especially for the TL tip.

Regarding tinting ... Definitely going to do here out here in the AZ desert. I'm even going to look into what can be done with a windshield "tint" - not so much to darken as to screen UV to protect the leather dash.

Not much call for winter month "slush mats" down here - but this Jeep will be taking trips to the AZ high country (like it's predecessor). For my 98 GC, I've been content to turn the mats over when we went into snow country. Not so sure if that will be an option with the purported "fancy berber mats" that are supposed to come with the Summit.
