Toledo plant isn't making wranglers right now

That's the story being told in the March Waiting Room. Figured I would start a thread to consolidate information/sharing.

Seems a bunch of us were supposed to ship -- but our Jeeps haven't been built yet.

Yeah the plant is running at full capacity. That's the issue, only so many Jeeps can be built.

I find that unlikely, as usually news like that gets out pretty quickly. I check Automotive News daily and no reports have been issued on the Toledo Plant that I have seen. Not to say it couldn't happen, but usually major production impacts are reported out to the press and word gets out quickly.

The truck delivering beer and dope to the plant broke down, so the workers aren't able to function.

We all know you can't put a Wrangler together while straight.

That's cold.

But funny.

If Gonzo gets a tie-dyed Jeep, we'll all know the truth.
