Actually - none of the tracking info is correct - unless it happens to be by chance. When mine was close to arriving, I got a text from the dealer saying that it would be arriving tomorrow, and it had already arrived at the dealership :lol:

Why Flame Red and Dual Alternators of course! Basically loaded, its one new truck in 13 years, why skimp. Luxury package with 8.4 U-Connect.(other screen is un-usable anyways) which gets you leather, heated everything, Alpine stereo, vented seats, 115V outlet, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers, Keyless with enter and go and remote start(why do you have to order a luxery package for the 115v outlet?)Rear Cargo Camera, Ram Boxes, LED bed lighting, Moon roof baby, bedliner no running boards obviously white knuckles ordered, I have the towing mirrors I asked them to take them off but they insisted they are bad ass so after a demo I kept them. Oh and I ordered a 4x4 model. :idea:

Geesh that is almost as bad as " You want Omaha Orange buddy? Fine NO Ram boxes!" Some things never seem to make sense. Its interesting that both the Wipers and Lights and camera are completely separate line items now.

I had always been a Chevy guy when I came over to Ram. And I felt like Ram had way more options and combos, but it's stupidly confusing and the YOU CAN"T HAVE X IF Y is really stupid. Especially the paint colors. Two-tone for you! Nope, you can't have that sweet tradesmen color. Oh, you want leather, TWO TONE FOR YOU.

When I was ordering, the auto wipers and lights were in a package together, but if you got that package then you couldnt get the rear cargo camera package :roll:

If I had to do it again, I would NOT get the Ramboxes. My truck has spent over a year of it's life at the dealership for those terribly designed lids. On the 2500's, they will warp and separate. I recently found out why, on the 1500's, they don't. A small tab holds the outer corners in place, something that was left out of the design for some reason on the bigger trucks. Hopefully they've fixed this on the newer models after enough complaints (mostly from me). Very useful, but very poorly executed on the '16 2500. I just had mine replaced for the 4th time and two weeks later they're coming off again.
Damn, and I've been kicking myself for not getting the ramboxes. I had my heart set on a camper shell but haven't pulled the trigger yet, not that I won't eventually but all my money just went into suspension. My truck has everything an SLT can be optioned with except ramboxes, dual alts (single 220) and nav, although it's capable if I ever decide to shell out the $600 for it.

Something else to break I suppose...
Is it that bad? I have one side lifting at the back on a 2017 and added some 3M double sided but it sounds like I should just take care of it myself.

maybe it was the 115v outlet that convinced me then. Kind of standard on vehicles today

Following this thread because I'll probably be ordering a PW when I can get one. Hard to find one locally with the options I want. :popcorn:

Estimated arrival for the rail car in Albuquerque is 10/26. Says if they are backed up on deliveries they will just go over and pick it up.

And sooo, it begins..... "What, that truck is not due here for a long time...." " but I was told it was scheduled for delivery today' "uhhhhhhh" "Maybe November 8th" When Did you order?" "Labor day weekend" " well it should not take that long, I will call you back in 10 Minutes"

And no call back all day and had to leave a voice mail. So now the extended wait begins. Lets hope they did not do something stupid like re-sell it.

Sitting at the factory, having passed up many trains coming here. Trying to find the sales rep for the region to find out why its growing weeds at the factory. Not someone who likes to call back.

It REALLY pains me to say this but, it seems that is S.O.P. for most companies today. Really sad. Being treated like that DOES NOT instill confidence in your dealer or sales person. You would think, that spending $60k+ for a truck these days would at least warrant a prompt callback, but nooooo !!! :angry:

I told my dealer, after it got bought out by someone else & was under new ownership (after a VERY BAD first experience with them) : JUST DON'T FREAKIN LIE TO ME----EVER & DON'T BULLSHIT ME----EVER. If you don't know, then tell me you don't know. As long as you are legitimately trying to fix it, then I am good. So far, it seems to have worked. Although it is frustrating when you need your truck to go to work . Glad I don't have that issue anymore though! :rockon:

Just hard to tell if what I am being told is true right now. My old truck has lots of issues, especially worn out leaky tires I don't want to replace...
