Hi All, Thanks for the warm welcome. I received my VIN and VON from my dealer. I called Chrysler today and they said my vehicle was in stage D1 - all materials gathered and ready for build. Odd thing - I ordered Dark Cordovan Pearl and the representative said it was Mocha Java. She said the paint color doesn't always have the same name as the marketed color. She also said stage C through D1 usually takes 3 weeks (today is 9 days since I ordered). I called 1-800-334-9200. If you call you will need your vehicle order number or last 8 of the VIN. The rep said they are available 24 hours/day and to call every day if I wanted to...a weekly call is likely good.
I ordered the Limited model - dark cordovan pearl with black/deep mocha interior (was going to go with black/alloy but the sills were white). Sunroof instead of 8th seat, spare instead of vacuum, tow group package, emergency kit group, interior protection package, splash guards, $1995 Uconnect and engine block heater. I chose to go with snow tires instead of the 20" tires (adding snows on the 20" would mean a new set of wheels also), the $2795 Uconnect isn't necessary for my purposes nor is the advanced safety tec group - both are expensive options.
