I know they have one being picked up today and I know it's a small world.

Yup! When I ordered on 3/27, the dealer told me they had 9 already ordered and could order 2 more. 6 or 7 to people who placed orders, and a couple to have on lot/play with/show/test drive. he tried selling me one they already ordered so I would have it quicker, but I dont want the 730 and all that jazz.

I doubt they will keep one for show and tell when they can probably sell it faster than a knife fight in a phone booth.

So delivery maybe sometime the last week of April. That is going to be a long wait for sure!

I guess it's time to get the old STI all cleaned out and detailed. Swap a few parts I'm going to sell separately this weekend or next and then give it a week on Craigslist or something but really hoping they give me something reasonable on the trade as that is the least hassle for me and with my work being very busy, having 2 kids with another on the way, and many house projects to complete, hassle is the last thing I need.
I was quoted 10 days to MD, so it may be here a little quicker than you think. I was KZ on Tuesday 4/9, went KZL overnight/this morning, and have been quoted 4/17 as delivery to me. Wouldn't surprise me if it turns up a day or two sooner. Congrats Doc, glad your day is finally here, us healthcare nuts need good toys for fun!

My manual says it will blow at anything over 13 AMPS. If your compressor draws more than that, you are out of luck.

Poured rain at my house last night on and off for about 4 hours. Popped the hood this morning to see if there was any water in the engine compartment. Jeep was tilted a bit to the left as i parked on a small side hill in my driveway. When I open the hood a little water came out of the left vent and landed on the engine cover.

The only water I could see were some drops on the air filter cover, and two small drops at the rear of the engine cover right under the washer nozzles. Looks like those nozzles might not be water tight.

I looked down and saw drops on top of the axle underneath both drain holes in the hood. Nothing on the alternator under the engine cover.

So, it looks like the water flows straight down and misses most everything. It was a very long and hard rain, so if that's all that was under the hood, that's pretty good. Still not sure how this drainage system works, so I'm going to hit the hood with a hose and see what comes out the bottom.

I'll let you know how I make out.

Stopped by the dealer to pickup some knuckles for my current sort top and was escorted to the service area to see another 10a that was ordered a week before me. All my colors and options excluding the hard top. Think I walked around the thing 10 times. I hit KM yesterday and am still there this morning ... so looking forward to hopefully next week getting mine. All you Anvil folks who've wavered on that color choice, you're going to love them.

I guess folks are ordering 10a's for Pizza Delivery vehicles. 4 are headed to Frisco, Texas with sequential VIN numbers and matching MSRP's. At least they are different colors.

There was an ealier post about jeep care. Whoever posted that, don't forget to update this thread with your plans. A lot of us were interested. With that said, anyone ever use this product? I think it's new. Looks like it could be a nice product to keep the leather nice:

I think to test out the hands free calling when I finally get mine, I'm going to call IAMJEEP from the Jeep and ask them "where is my Jeep?" just to see what they say.

If you have been in D-1 status for weeks, why can't you make a color change? IT's not like they have printed the build sheets out yet....

Apologize if its been discussed before, but were the red disco and locker switches an option for at the time of order? The JK with red leather I saw last night had black switches.

Because they are reading this forum.....We asked for red stitches on the black seats and they confused it and gave us red switches.

Hey at least Chrysler is trying to listen to us, got to give them a little credit.....

Now we just have to figure out how to keep them from confusing the message.

Consensus here is red leather = black switches, black leather = red switches

They are talking about the edisco and locker switches. Stitches match the color leather you have.

I sent this to my dealer, hopefully I get some useful information

Xxxx,

Can you please contact your Chrysler representative in order to get
some on-the-ground truth as to the status of my Jeep?

I have grown weary of the conflicting information that I get from
Chrysler's vehicle order tracking system. The information provided is
all over the place and often leaves me with more questions than
answers. For instance, last Saturday I called and was told that my
Jeep was built, and run through a random lot inspection, which it
passed and was ready for shippment. That means my Jeep was classified
as 'J' status last Saturday. I was also told that it was going to
ship this past Monday. You can imagine my excitement - and then utter
dissapointment when Monday came and went with no word on shipping.
Worse than that, I was told that their was no estimated shipping date.
Unreal.

Now the latest news is that my Jeep is in 'I' status (still pending
inspection), with no estimated delivery date. What in the world is
going on? All I know is that it has been almost 1/3 of a year to the
day, and that there is a Jeep with my name on it floating around
somewhere in Toledo, OH. Waiting is one thing, but waiting half-blind
as to what is going on is unacceptable.

I am cognizant that Janurary was a pre-sale, and that production did
not start until March 18th. That said, I also know of people who
ordered in March, and have already taken delivery of their 10th
Anniversary units. What, exactly, was the point of ordering in
Janurary? I need to see some positive forward momentum because this
process has just wandered past the point of patience into frustrating.

I still really want the Jeep, and I am glad that I can still qualify
for the $500 education bonus. That brings my down payment up to
$6,000, which is great! I am just sick of flying almost completely
blind. I am also tired of having to answer my familly and friend's
inquiries as to when I am getting my Jeep with a passive shrug of the
shoulders and look on my face that says, "Hell if I know..." I need
your help.

Thanks, and I look forward to some good news from Jeep.

Very respectfully,
Espada

The Bill Of Materials and Routers get loaded and PN's are released...

This is either intentional or the PN's for the red and black switches got mixed up in the document control and release process. The production floor builds them the way the routers and BOM's are set up in the MRP system.

You can order the switches over the parts counter and have them installed.

Appreciate the response. Personally for me, all the red I need is in the seats. As long as the switch operates when I push it, I'm good. Now if they installed fluorescent purple or something like that, I'd probably squawk

Nice! I'm happy for everyone who ordered after and before me(1/28) who are getting their jeeps! It just gets you guys out of the way so they can hook mine up really nicely. I bow at the graciousness and low key approach of Lord Chrysler. I think with me acknowledging his wisdom will allow him to smile upon lowly me and grace me with a free official/unofficial 10A winch. As a humble servant spending $43K...I will accept the gift.
