My Summits Built....Pending Inspection FINALLY
 
For those tracking Summits with the RHR and Bright Polished Wheels....mine has just been built...finally. I know you don't actually care MINE was built (you care about just yours actually LOL) but am posting this as an FYI regarding current build progress (at least the delays aren't as torturous for later orders as orders from last fall, ouch):

-Ordered at dealership on 12/30/2010 (put down $1,000 deposit check (dealer never cashed) and used the TL affiliate pricing for 1% below invoice + $75 admin fee).

- Official Jeep order date 1/7/2011 (delay from 12/30 to 1/7 was due to Jeep ordering being closed for the holidays so I am told) and VON assigned. My order date was BEFORE the RHR was opened up for ordering but my dealer assured me they would make sure I got the RHR (much to the disbelief of many, including myself, but they did follow through on this).

- VIN assigned about a week later (not sure exact date but I found the VIN via the Jeep Information Center phone number, not from any update from dealer, no surprise).

- Went D1 (Scheduled for Build) on 2/23/2011 with scheduled delivery date of 3/15/2011.

- Went I (Built - Pending Inspection) on 3/5/2011 (10 days from D1 to I). Still no online window sticker available yet.

--- Now the wait is on to see how fast it gets out of inspection, into plant release (KZ), and on a transport to the dealer...the 3/15/2011 date I am not holding my breath over...but at least it now exist beyond an order in a computer... :cool:

UPDATE:

- Went KZ (Plant Release) on 3/5/2011....1 hour and 8 minutes after going I.


----So, from time of official order date is 10 weeks (11 weeks from time I ordered it with the dealer)....

Congratulations, Dan!!! I understand your excitement. Mine is not moving too well. In fact, it had to go to the body vendor-this has me worried!!! I am really sweating this! I can't wait until I get it and see it! My delivery date was 3/3/11-not going to make that! Tell us when you get your new baby and fill us in. Looking forward to it.

Happy for you and mad at the same time. Mine has not moved from gateline! I am trying to persuade the owner of my dealership to swap vehicles with me. He ordered a rugged brown Summit back in December but wasn't made until late February and now is on a railcar. I will know next week if he agrees to swap orders!

Candy Girl - Looks like the hold on yours was released so you should go KZ any time now.

joebinotto - I would think yours would go D1 any time now and built this month. Does the dealer one have Bright Polished Wheels and RHR (if that's important to you)?

Today was the first time I've been happy with the progress....the lack of info and waiting is frustrating, especially since I've been wanting to get a new vehicle for two years but the Grand Cherokees hadn't changed since 2005 when I bought my last one....

If the dealers was made late Feb he should have bright polished and 50/50 on the RHR.

Re: My Summits Built....Pending Inspection FINALLY
 
joebinotto ---Do you have the link to the window sticker or the VIN for the dealer order?

Re: My Summits Built....Pending Inspection FINALLY
 
Yes, the salesman provided me with the confidential dealer options report. Below are the codes and descriptions for the two options:
RHRP Media Center 730N CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV
WRJP 20X8.0 Bright Polished Alum Wheels

^^^ Not sure what is "confidential"...the options are online...but good to see that it is with the RHR making it in more vehicles coming to the dealers.....
