It's a great feeling when you know your truck is built, past inspection and is shipping out.

Why does it take 4 days to go 86 miles south of the rail yard?
Well they have to fit the drugs in and then get them back out first. ;-) I think my truck is going to have the mother load, 3+ weeks in Final Inspection ordered in early July......

My first post so I hope that I do it correctly. For those of you patiently waiting for your truck to arrive, below is a summary of my experience. This was for a white R/T with Convenience Group, 8.4AN radio, and Bedliner

7/23/13: Dealer entered order. Told me it would be 8 weeks.
8/5/13: VOTS email confirming order.
8/6/13: VOTS email showing status as "Production Scheduled"
8/29/13: VOTS email saying assembly started. Status changed to "Paint".
8/30/13: Status changed to "Trim".
9/3/13: VOTS email saying assembly complete. Status changed to "Shipped".
9/18/13: Truck arrived at dealer. Picked it up tonight. Total time 8 weeks & 1 day.

BTW, did you have a post with the insight logistics info on it?
IT went KZ on the 5th and KZM on the 7th. It stayed pretty true to schedule except for an unscheduled stop in Arkansas.

Here's the link to it: http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?...11#post1194311

Since someone expressed interest in seeing more actual dates, here are mine. This is somewhat from memory, I didn't save all of the emails.

6/20 placed order. Dealer said they usually see them in about 2 months.
7/8 VOTS confirmation.
7/15 Production Scheduled email, although VOTS said Production Scheduled around 7/10.
8/2 build started, email came on 8/5.
Stuck in Paint status for the week of 8/5 due to Mexico plant's summer shutdown.
8/13 status changed to Trim
8/14 shipped
8/29 at dealer

The long time between order being placed and confirmation was explained to me as being in Edit Error due to the DH8 electronic transfer case. By the time I got my build sheet, it said DH9 so maybe they were changing to something new.
