Against All Odds
 
I joined this forum a few weeks ago after ordering my first ever Jeep. The information that I learned on this site has been invaluable in my purchase decision. While I haven't posted a lot since joining, I've followed a lot of the stories, questions etc. (my favorite: the daily updates of Dan's Black Summit - especially on the day of delivery - I was rooting for ya Dan).

Anyway, I've also followed the horror stories of delayed orders. For those in that category...please don't hate me. But, improbable as it may seem, this is the timeline on my order:

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4X4 V6, Brilliant Black w/ Saddle interior; Adaptive Cruise Package; 730N-RHR; NO Rear DVD.

March 3 - Placed Order With Dealer
March 4 - Dealer Placed Order with Jeep
March 8 - Scheduled For Build (D1)
March 19 - Built - Pending Inspection (I)
March 20 - Plant Release (KZ)
March 28 - ETA Dealer Delivery

Needless to say, I consider myself very fortunate (and very excited about my new JGC).

Welcome! Congrats on the quick order, let's hope it goes smooth the rest of the way. I had the same order experience my 1st time around (summit w/430N, but then cancelled). The 2nd time I ordered (summit w/730N), the wait was pretty long but we've kicked around some ideas on this forum about Jeep 'batching' orders. My 2nd order (having waited a long time from a 'second' order date of 1/15, is also being delivered on 3/28. I also noticed you are from the NJ area...me too. Let's keep tabs, DJeep...I think you and I (hopefully) may have our WK2's on the delivery path.

Good luck buddy! Mine has been built for awhile now and sits in Toledo right now, trying to get on a train to Kentucky. So, it looks like at this stage, they can build'em pretty fast, but they cant get'em outta Detroit. So, hang in there. My estimated delivery date changes.........a lot.

I bet it depends on the options you chose.

Hey guys. Sorry for bumping my own thread. Update on my Overland:

On Railcar in New Boston, MI this morning. Expected delivery at my dealership in NJ - March 29. Now the fun begins.

Wow - very cool. I'm still stuck in D status since mid Feb for a Limited! Still no movement to D1. Dealer is estimating mid to late April for delivery which makes it close to 8-10 weeks, but no hard data to support that estimate yet.

It's like watching a rubber duck race - just because your duck is in the lead... it doesn't mean much til it crosses the finish line.

Dan JGC ordered before me, but my Jeep was built before his, but he's got his Jeep and mine just got on the train - my estimated delivery is now April 6th.

So... you had a fast duck. :lol:

Re: Against All Odds
 
^^^ Great analogy netcoolery! Yours went KZ two days before mine too. Not sure but it looks like it needed to get to a facility to catch a westward train...and still needed to go through an interchange in Ohio....so you probably got a week or so to go...frustrating I know, been there, done that.
