Just finished a Jeep Chat with Darryl. This is the first time I was told that it looks like I have an email on file and I needed to verify it. Then he said his program crashed and the needed to check his other one. He said I am in I status but he couldn't tell me how many days. (I was told earlier in the week I was at that status on 11/9). I asked him to check his other program and I can wait until he reboots it. Then he told me it was down for maintenance. When I asked him why I would be in I for so long he said "I- Built not OK."
Ordered 9/13. According to the dealer my was built about 2 weeks ago but has at a "vendor" to get the hard top liner installed ever since.
From dealer "It is at the vendors that install the headliner. It is there in Toledo and it could add a little time as they take it to
them and then back to Jeep to ship it out on the rail line."
I wrote "I didn’t realize that Jeep used outside vendors for factory orders. That’s a bit concerning."
Response "The vendor as I understand make the hard top and the new head liner is a little different than the early ones.
I agree about the in house but much of the parts are shipped in from contracted metal suppliers and the electronics I guess
So it sounds to me that mine would have been shipped had I not ordered the hardtop headliner.....??
