Top 10 Reason's the Overland is on production HOLD!
 
To recap, The Top 10 Reasons the Overland is on production hold:
#10 - They need to retrain all the people that has been out of work for months
#9 - They produce a batch for europe
#8 - Its simply been a long time since Chrysler actually had a car people wanted
#7 - www.JeepGarage.org exists
#6 - Chrysler was making money on the Overland, and they don't know what to do when they are in the black
#5 - It had been so long since suppliers delivered parts, some of them forgot the address and got lost trying to make a delivery
#4 - They did a bad job of pricing the trim levels making the Overland overly attractive too many would-be Limited buyers who feel the Overland is a better value
#3 - The custom upholstery stitching for the saddle interior is a very time consuming process and the supply factory is getting backed up. Last week they added 14 children to the payroll which should help alleviate the backorders.
#2 - Drunk assembly line employees had to go through rehab before being allowed to return to the line
#1 - Milous is only one person, he can't build them all!!

other: 70k+ units have sold already, it's been awhile since Detroit had to produce this kind of volume, particularly on a new rig

I heard they are building the Dodge Durango at the Jeep Plant and aren't currently building Grand Cherokee. Has anyone else heard this?
