After being pissed at my salesman, the delaership, Jeep and the American people in general for the last 10 months, I broke down & called my salesman to order a 2013. Which, it seems, is no longer available. WTF???
He then informs me that my original order was never cancelled but was left in the system. Because the dealership never got the inital delivery and the 2013's were almost exclusively allotted to the US market, they were 101% positive they were getting a 2014. Which is out in 3 months, or so they say. I was told to expect a 3-6 month delivery date.
So, I'm back AGAIN, pride in my hat, patiently waiting for my truck AGAIN.
I have no pride whatsoever...

Yes, I could have a US model shipped here, we do it all the time. Ends up costing a tad more due to import/shipping costs, but it's our dealers attitude towards a US vehicle which has me more apprehensive.
The exact same car/truck here in Canada usually goes for a solid 10% more up here. With more'n more canucks buying down south, it's killing canadian dealerships.
So if you pull in for work under warranty with your US-purchased vehicle at the same time as 15 other vehicles bought in Canada, guess who gets taught a lesson
To be honest, I'm not too optimistic. I will patiently wait for up to 6 months and see what happens. I will let you know either way, 'cause I know that you will all be biting fingernails worrying for me...
I thought Canada was the 51st state of the US? Hmmm.
I will say you have to watch out for the Cheeser's. They cross the border and come down to infiltrate Washington state, buy up all the inexpensive cheese only to take it all from the Americans and gorge on it all winter when they arrive home... Cant forget about the hosers too. Its a good thing that practice usually happens on their own soil. Bob and Doug MacKenzie obviously brought that little problem to view even though it is still is plaguing the inner cities and the countrysides of Canada. One of the biggest menacing masterminds from Canada actually wasnt born there, even though he was concieved in Canadian territory....and that my friends is Robert Goulet.
Dont let him fool you with his broadway/musician disquise. He is a cross triple agent with the US, Canada and Russia and was seen as the biggest threats to the social downfall of Canada only to be superseded by Goulet's research team that created the robot they call Justin the Beaver. Yes, my friends, just when "the good guys" Rush finally led Canada from the dark ages and instilled some common ground with the release of "Moving Pictures" in 1981, they have turned two fold in the opposite direction allowing Goulet and his team of mad researchers and scientists to create this robot atrosity they call Justin the Beaver.
Keep your eyes out for Goulet, he cannot be trusted and it is widely known that he disquises himself as will Ferrell who inturn actually plays Goulet himself.....bloody genius. His new album that he taunts so highly, "The coconut bangers ball" is quite simply an encripted source of info stolen from the west only to be supplied to the Rusky's. Please pass this on
