Wow, just amazing to see all the various machinery and employees perform this intricate dance to get these Jeeps down the line. So many ways that could go wrong but that's crazy good!

Thanks for posting!

Completely mesmerizing to me. Thank God for Capitalism! No other way this production line could be created.

If anyone wants to see a glimpse into the factory, I found this FB page.

https://m.facebook.com/pages/Jeep-Plant-Toledo-OH/132869936773293

From the comments you can tell whether the factory is running weekend shifts. Occasionally you come across a photo from the line, or a comment about assembly.
Yeah, I see the workers post there... looking at their comment I see why maybe we have so much problems with our Jeep, zero pride on their work only in it for the “another day, another dollar”

Always will have those kind of workers in any setting, just there for the money. Hell there’s some days I’m like that too, I take pride in making steel but some days you just want to say f the place if it didn’t pay so well

The engineers, though, are supposed to account for the fact that the assembly workers have little or no skill. From watching the video, there is very little that they need to do in final assembly. I would love to see videos of the component assembly (engine, transmission, axles, dash, etc.)

You also have to figure that there are plenty of workers preforming more skilled tasks, and these workers don't feel the need to bitch about their job on FB and say shit like '4 down 6 to go. Makin money $$$' and post pics of some shitty food they got from the food truck.

One of my favorite comments had to do with some worker bitching about the clips. Something like 'these clips! Give me any other job but these clips. '

This is certainly the factory Cyberdyne will choose to build the T1000 after the war. Very impressive to watch.
