are these OPDA's still being produced? The dealer keeps telling me its backordered, so is it backordered or not even made anymore?
Before the original Chrysler went bankrupt they quit building the inline 6 and of course they did not need too many of the OPDA deals anymore. Then they did go bankrupt and never went back into building cars. During that period of time before Chrysler Group took over Chrysler operations many of the part suppliers also went belly up. I am guessing this happened to whoever build our OPDA's. Chrysler Group stopped doing business with some of the old Chrysler suppliers. So I am guessing Chrysler Group is actually getting the supplier to start building them again. I would love to know what actually is happening. But one thing to remember- - - - Chrysler Group never had anything to do with TJ/LJ Jeeps or the 4.0 inline engine. They never built them as the TJ/LJ and 4.0 were halted 6 months or more before Chrysler Group took over Chrysler which is now called Old Carco. So just knowing Chrysler Group is honoring the warranty and also probably building replacement parts gives me hope they are showing some sort of customer acknowledgment.
