2014 replacement body part not available til December?!?
 
My 2014 overland got backed into and i sustained minor damage on the front right corner... has been in the auto body shop getting repaired for nearly 2 weeks now.. they claim there has been parts delays from mopar. This is the email I got today:

"We will have it ready for you to pick up later today minus the lower rocker molding, we have no updates on the part but a possible release date of December 2013"

Is this for real? Mopar/Jeep/Chrysler can't get a body replacement part for 2 months or longer - and that's just estimated?? Are these Jeeps not being built on a daily basis? Why can they not take one of those parts, put it in a box, and ship it to the body shop?

Can someone help me understand this?

Don't take their word for it.

I needed some work done on one of my vehicles and it was in the shop for a while. (four months!!)

I was patient until they told me it needed dashboard plastics and they were "out of stock nationwide" and I would have to wait another month. I flipped out.

I asked the body shop for the part number and found the part in Indiana 5 minutes later after asking my preferred dealer to do a part search and had that dealer drop ship it to my body shop in L.A.

Get the part number and do your own research. You might end up lucky like I was....find your part...make the dealer your body shop deals with look like a jackass.
