Oh this is going to be fun. You’re actually getting pissed off typing this out. My mistake for slightly misunderstanding your previous essay.

You clearly think you are the next Elon, so let’s run some scenarios. I’m a small business owner, operating almost entirely on e-commerce. If a customer wants a product that I have, they first pay me for it and then I ship it to them. It’s a pretty clear concept, most companies do it. Furthermore, like every company I’ve ever experienced, if an item I have is on backorder, customers still pay me for it. It kind of helps to know if I should restock that item. If I just accepted a bunch of backorders without payment, what happens when I’m ready to ship and said customer changes their mind? I spent money on a product and I don’t have a buyer...that’s called bad business, that puts you out of business.

Former massive e-commerce company I worked for too clearly thought taking payment for a Backordered item was the right play too. I’m sorry you’re so passionate about this, but you’re wrong.

No, this is not obvious. Especially when you go on to say it should be up to the second updates.

You get sub-minute updates on _people_ that have GPS trackers on them. This is completely different than getting sub-minute updates on every apple or orange at Whole Foods individually tracked.

I hear what you’re saying.

Anytime an absolutely critical part of a vehicle is needed, I recommend ordering thru the dealership parts dept and 9/10 times if it’s in stock, they can have it by the next business day.

There is nothing wrong with wanting communication and visibility to your online order during the process from purchase to delivery. Usually big companies are good about providing this information to their customers.

FWIW, I approached this thread with the assumption that @Cleoncini was targeting those who’ve ordered non critical Jeep parts (badge stickers for example) and can’t understand why the store won’t send out to FedEx/UPS and why they won’t deliver sooner?

As a consumer, I would prefer that people get their critical vehicle parts faster than those who’ve ordered non critical parts. But that’s just me and my opinion.

Lol, when was the last time you saw someone complaining about not being able to get a part they really NEEDED on this forum, it's all bitching about having to wait for a bumper, roof rack, rock sliders, floor mats, lift kits, etc. Yea, real essentials.
Bingo.

It’s not at all surprising to see your username yet again arguing, trolling and posting stupid shit. You live a sad, pathetic life to waste so much time trolling a vehicle board you don’t even own. I pity you.

Wow. Equating supply-chain disruptions and not bleeding-edge tracking technology to abuse and mass destruction and death.

Priceless.




and also very sad.

Commiefornia screwed my air quality here in NY because they refuse to cut out dead trees in a forest in a drought. Commiefornia is the reason why there is a haze here and has gotten relatively chillier because the sun isn’t shining bright enough.

Definitely the same person that argues politics on Facebook. I checked some of his comment history. Simply unable to actually have a conversation. Attacks and belittles everyone.

Of the approximately 33 million acres of forest in California, federal agencies (including the USDA Forest Service and USDI Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service) own and manage 19 million acres (57%). State and local agencies including CalFire, local open space, park and water districts and land trusts own another 3%. 40% of California's forestland is owned by families, Native American tribes, or companies.
our 3% is raked, cry to the feds.

*Points at back right pocket* The wallet your honor. So happy I left when I did 4 years ago. It's one of the most beautiful states and I love to visit, but I will not be moving back haha.
Actually...comes across more like sour grapes...

Your 3% does not include a silent majority who will speak up on Nov 3rd.

@Thinman was referring to the amount of land that California is responsible for and has to maintain (3%). The rest of the land is “federal land” so it has to be maintained by the federal government.
