Thanks in advance.
VOTS
Scheduled - 8/30
Build - 9/16
Shipped - 9/23

The email messages were way behind the actual VOTS website. Obviously, the email notification on 9/26 said 2 weeks to delivery and my truck was already at the dealer.

I did hear about the delay today but wasn't told why. My truck is now supposed to be at the dealership on 09/30. Had to cancel an appointment I made for Monday to have the 3M hood protectant installed and the spray in liner. I guess that will teach me to get the cart ahead of the horse

If your truck isn't on the railcar, may I recommend that you not pay attention to the estimated dates.?.?.?

Yesterday I spoke with my dealer and he told me to not count on the estimated dates. He stated he's seen his order just sit at the plant, waiting to get loaded, to miss the estimated railcar load date by weeks. He said if it got loaded within a few days of the original estimate, I would be lucky.

So far, my estimated railcar load date has been moved back 3 times, as has the deliver to dealer estimate... I'm expecting it to happen again tomorrow...

BTW, when it misses the estimate, what seems to happen is that all the estimates move back one day, but keeps the same estimated time... Also, all my estimated times are basically on the 1/2hr... Load on railcar @ plant 10:32pm CDT.. railcar interchange @ Eagle Pass 3:32 pm CDT.. railcar interchange @ East St Louis 2:32am ...... All future estimates happen on the 1/2 hr... I think Ram just fills these estimated date and times in as place holders or something, so they really aren't true estimates; being that they keep missing them.
