Haven't thought about that song in a loooong time!

I REALLY don't think the order window has closed. I think there's two weeks and two days left. They cut off certain colors and models, but base trim levels is not closing until May 8th, at least according to Patrick. He's not been wrong too often, if at all.

Hth,
For what it's worth, I'd trust Patrick from Fields before I'd trust any website like that. He's never steered us wrong...

Nothing wrong with you. I check the VOTS daily...sometimes twice a day. Drive by the dealership, "just in case". And occasionally harrass the IAMJEEP people. I thought something was wrong with me too, but after weeks of waiting and hanging out here, I realized... WE ARE NOT ALONE! Lol

I have! Love that place. I work for a restaurant group in Key Largo that includes Sundowners, Senor Frijoles, Ballyhoos and Marker 88.

No...I think everyone will agree you are perfectly normal. I checked on the weekends too, knowing full well that it wouldn't update. I was just hoping someone at the factory came in for some OT and was going to throw us a bone in the waiting room. Haha!! Never happened.

You've waited long enough to deserve to have a special jeep (I know they are all special). I have seen one 10A in Bakersfield, but no X's. I saw an C at the dealer back in October. They don't remember ordering any others. Good luck this week!!

Mine was the first (and hopefully last) one my dealer had ordered. Seeing your very own X in person NEVER gets old.

She rides like a dream and after 700 miles, I still love looking out over that X hood and knowing that she's all mine!

This is your week 450!

If they put mine on there I'll go drive the truck. I'm only about 150 miles from there.

For those still waiting, it is worth it. Hard to believe the wait was 9 weeks and 2 days. Good luck to everyone waiting, especially 450!!

I'm thinking it's time to call the dealership.

Progress, progress, progress

So cool to see all the stuff going on here. Man the pages just keep rolling along in this thread! It's hard to keep up, but some really awesome deliveries and progress.

I moved to KZ today. So that was a pleasant surprise.
Looks like I'm right behind Hoorah!

Best wishes to all the Senior class (450MPH you know who you are...).
How many folks are still waiting from February?

JeepFan95 It's nice to see some new faces in the Waiting Room. Welcome to all those that recently joined. Be sure to check out post #1 for lots of good info.

Enjoy (if that's possible) your wait!

They unload the rail cars to a holding lot where the transport trucks pick them up and deliver to dealerships.

I worked very near a huge rail yard and watched the process for many years. In fact the company I worked for had surplus parking space and fenced it off and leased it to Hyundai for short term storage.
They would truck the cars from the rail yard, a short distance away, unload them to the lot.....and then load them on trucks again for delivery to dealerships......it was crazy !!!
