    Stopped by my dealer today and was informed that my HC is KZ! They expect delivery before the end of the year. Even though Brampton closes down for the holidays, the Truckers 'keep on truckin'! (My Jeep Overland was delivered last New Year's Eve (2013) in the late afternoon and I picked it up at 6 PM). Needless to say, I'm "geeked"! No sun roof or Satin Black hood. Had discussion with painters in body shop about having them paint the hood. Was advised that when clear coat is applied over the satin black, it tends to get "splotchy" and there is no known way to control that (could this be the issue that SRT's outside supplier is running into?). In any case, I'll wait to see how SRT resolves this and then make my decision whether to paint, wrap, find some cool graphic, or just leave it Sublime. Got to see and look into a Tor Red 6 speed with Black Laguna at the dealership. Was told that the owner will pick it up next week. If that were my car, there would be NFW I'd be able to wait that long! Will post pics when it comes.

    Check with your dealer, you may be surprised like me! I called SRT after I received my VIN because the shipper (POC) showed a completion date of 12/17/14. When I spoke with SRT I questioned that date and was told, "Those dates are never reliable. You might see your car at the end of January (2015) or possibly in February. No way will you see it before". Low and behold, I'm now told to expect it before year's end. The rationale is that once cars are built near the end of the year, they want to get them off the books for tax purposes. Good luck and I hope that you also have good news to report soon!

    One addition: I never received any email updates from SRT on the progress of my HC even though the guy I spoke to (as mentioned above, and my only call to SRT) said "I'll be emailing you as your car starts moving along".

    I'm right there with you, my friend. Mine was JS since 12/1 but once I removed the black hood after dealer called and said it might be May before I see it, I went KZ with a 12/29 estimated delivery. Like you, I'm going to watch and see what Chrysler comes up with for the black hood situation and make a decision down the road whether or not to get one. Congrats on yours being on the way and here's to hoping we BOTH see ours before the New Year!

    Thanks Brian !

    I'm optimistic that we both will have 2014 deliveries. Remember, Sublime Green is the fastest!

    Looks like Santa is remembering us like the guy in the Infinity commercial. Happy New Year!

    Car was built Nov 14, cleared Inspection on 15th... Was told expect delivery on 1st week of Dec (that was from SRT and my dealer was told same)...and .. NUT N! Car on hold for who knows!? No communication. just pissed off over this BS. Yea I want my toy ! But come on man, throw me a bone, tell me what's going on! I couldn't run my business this way- been told it's a weather thing, trucks backed up and my favorite "I have no idea what's going on with it"... And yes SRT is trained to say whatever(have three of 'em emailing me with updates/HA!)
