It ships(ed) today!!!!!

According to the 1-800 number provided on another post, I got antsy and decided to call Chrystler to find out the status of my Islander. After about 10 minutes of trying to find it using the last 8 of the VIN and finally the vehicle order number, they said that their records, which were updated on Friday, state the Jeep was scheduled to ship out today!! Don't know where, but hey, it's one step closer to being in my driveway!!

That's good to hear. I bet the dealer will have it in a couple of days. Good luck.

Make sure you hang out at the dealer so you're there when it arrives. Otherwise, you never know who is going to take it for a test spin.

If I knew when that was, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I don't know how it's being shipped (truck or rail), nor when it'll arrive.

Ask your sales rep it they will let you know the day it is expected to arrive..
Usually they know what's coming in when. One would hope.

Bring a tent and camp out.. lol

Well I was told it wasn't going to arrive till the first week of April. But if it's already shipped, there's not telling when it's gonna get there.

I just heard there was a big accident just south of Toledo, Ohio. I didn't catch all the details but there was something about a new car hauler being wrecked and new Jeeps with funny looking decals spread all over the highway.

I'm getting a black one. I emailed the dealer a short time ago and asked if the delivery date was changed cause it's shipped, and I was told they're "tracking" the vehicle and it's "moving fast". So hopefully later this week or weekend?

Make sure you post some pictures. I haven't seen one in black yet. I saw a blue one at a dealer recently and it actually looked worse in person. I'm thinking the black ones will look better.

Someone from here sent me about 20 pics of his Islander 2dr. He took the hood decals off (which I'm thinking will be mod #1) and it looks pretty nice.

I think the graphics are cool. Isn't that part of the whole Islander/Retro look to it.

Islander? Sport? Jeep is bringing back some old model names, now I am off to the jeep web site to check out this Islander look, not that I will be replacing my 09 within the next ten years

There is nothing retro about those graphics.

I think your 09 is safe. Sport is X. Islander is Sport with Rubi tires, 2 tone seats and the word ISLANDER on the side of the hood with a big tiki.

Fortunately the half doors are an option.........I don't think I'd be too keen on having a 4dr unlimited islander with half doors!!

If you take the decals off, what was the point of buying the Islander? The only thing you get then is the seats. You could have gotten a black Sport with Rubicon wheels and tires.

I was thinking this same thing when I read of people taking the stickers off their Islanders first thing after they get it.. ???

Oh yea, I forgot about the blue steering wheels stitching.
