I thought the same thing too but sure enough it took 4-5 days to get enough vehicles. Normally the dealer would get a hauler about once or twice a week. The day of my delivery they had 3 loads dropped off. Me thinks the guys at Jessup are a little on the lazy side!

When I was waiting for my 99 F250, I lived in Houston and the main auto yard supplied all the dealers for all the vehicles that arrived by rail. They only had so many trucks to deliver to all the dealers and the 250/350 models could only ride on the top due to their sheer size. I think the 2500/3500 have the same restriction as the auto carriers haven't changed much in a decade.

Here's the thing though... Most of the deliveries I've witnessed, the carrier isn't just hauling to one specific dealer.... They might drop off one or two at a dealer then drop some off at the next dealer. So even if they had to go on top, it's not like they can't make room; especially since most deliveries are for dealer stock, not sold orders..

I think the sold status only helps in the plant. The shipper is its own beast. I could very well be wrong though.

My 2014 2500 Laramie 4x4 CTD left Texas rail yard on Tuesday. Suppose to be here in Florida at dealer by 10/14. I'll be the first 2014 2500 there, hope they don't put 10,000 miles and road dings on it joy riding or stick the ugly a$$ dealer logo on the back of it. Did not pay $60k for a truck to do free advertising for them.

How can I track the status of my truck if I'm in Canada?
www.ramtrucks.com/vots doesn't seem to work for me...

Your dealer can do it. I may be able to do it. So far I am 3/4 on being able to track and #4 may just not be in a state I can track yet.

Edit: 4/4

Today is a good day.

I got the first one around here too. kinda cool in my opinion, sort of personal bragging rights. But as for the dealer logo's I make sure that they take that sh*t off of my vehicles unless the give me some incentive to advertise for them. So far I haven't been taken up on that.
