So Cool!

Hubby works for Mopar and we live in Toledo. Chrysler had their employee picnic today and they had the plant open. We got to walk through and see where my baby will be built! Met a few of the workers. I'm even more excited to get it now! Was cool to see where she'll be born and her siblings!

One of the things that felt great to me, as an Ohioan, about buying my Wrangler was that I know so many of the places where the parts come from.

I'd like to take a factory tour.

It wasn't an official tour but it was pretty open. I love that I'm buying a vehicle made in my home town!

We saw at least 4 in Crush. Hubby really likes that color. Looks good in contrast with the black top!

Cool...
Is it anything like the "build your own" Crush on the Jeep website?

I toured the Harley plant in PA and can only imagine what that tour would have been like. I'm jealous too!

That's the greatest news I've heard today. Now if I could only get some movement on my order

Header Orange for the 2012 Challenger:


Crush from the Jeep website:




Only Chrysler could make two of the same colors look nothing alike. Header Orange looks a lot closer to Toxic Orange for the 2011 Challengers...but Toxic Orange looks like the new Crush...yet Toxic Orange looked a lot like Mango Tango.

Here is Toxic Orange Pearl:



Basically...did Crush look like any of the above?

Are you sure they were Crush, not Dozer? Yesterday dealer told me Crush was showing a "restriction" for ordering on the computer, meaning they were not being currently built, and not yet slated to be on the next coming production run. I'm anxious to see it as well.

It was Crush. I thought it was Dozer too but hubby said it wasn't. There was one Dozer in the yard and it was very different than the Crush. Crush is much more orange. Dozer isn't as orange as I'd pictured.

There definitely were at least two 4 door Crush that I saw. I want to say they were both hard top.

I didn't think I'd be as impressed as I was. It's just a car plant right? Not even close! T'was awesome! For sure!

Thanks Molly. That's a bit of a relief. At least it seems that they are in production...not mine yet, but some.

This is the most exciting thing I have read today!!!!!!! I only wish one of those two JKU's was mine!!!!!! Thank you for taking the time to answer the Crush questions!!!

As you can tell, those of us who ordered Crush are a little anxious about our orders and if they are actually being built yet! (Obsessive, maybe??)

Neither my dlr or my contact with Chry produced any info...just blah blah blah... It's only been in production a week so I would think (?) we would get movement soon.

Yeah, I guess that is a bit different. This all would be easier to take if they would just tell us when. Then I look at some of the other guys/gals on this forum who ordered whatever color and some have been stuck in other statuses for a month. I know that orders way overwhelm supply but at least some communication would ease the pain.

Edit: Sorry if I misquoted you...was an innocent oversight and misunderstanding.

Dennis, mi Amigo.. Trust me, it ain't yours..or mine. If you have been tracking via Insight you would know when it's being built. Question is, of course...who gets those ?... If you have not been tracking then maybe one is yours, but there are several of us with older order dates who have been tracking and it's like we don't exist..or so it seems

Hey Mark,
I was just having fun. I am just calling the dealer from time to time, it will get here when it does. We are in the same position - it seems to take forever.

Dennis,

Ya know - this wait is a killer. I've bought new vehicles before, but except for my bike that I could not ride until spring anyway, this is the first time I did not buy off the lot and ordered what I wanted instead!
I miss the instant gratification you get when you buy something off the lot!
When did you order?

I originally ordered on July 12 for a Sahara Tan. It was built with the wrong axle ratio (3.21) due to that software glitch. It came and I refused it. I reordered this one on 8/13 and have been in D status since about 8/16 or so. I have not bought very many new vehicles in my life except for work trucks and cars, those were off the lot. This is my first time ordering one to be built to my specs.

That is really a bummer - but you have to get what you want when spending this kind of money. Good luck!
