No need to apologize as you didn't know (VOTS didn't update till this AM anyway...).

I suspected they would work on getting these things out the door ASAP. The plants don't want to hold on to the vehicles as that means the more chance they have to deal with something while it is stored there. They don't ship vehicles unless they clear QA. And QA can be a pain these days from what I've heard (its a love/hate relationship between assembly and QA)

I hope you get your truck soon!

Just called VOTS this late afternoon. Now I get a different story from when I called the other day. The VOTS system is losing credibility based on my experience. Oh yes, from what was stated by Ram, my truck is still in R.R. possession.

Yank: I'm going to just forget about it for one week. If it doesn't show up in 1 week from today, I'll find myself a left over 2013. The dealer is loaded with them. I see they are selling them almost $10K off and they are almost the identical truck to the '14s.

sane choice...that thought crossed my minds more than once.....all it did was make me angry...as it was..ifn someone had said..."we anticipate 60 days to delivery"...and dats it...no problemos short of a nuclear attack or a strike....I wouldnt have paid any attention...it took 54 days...and all their "help" did was muddy the waters and convince me "they" were clueless and wtf did I just do??? a completely anonymous cyber "persona" got involved and helped...now izzat any way to run a railroad??/....errrr..car co???

the view from HERE looks just fine...now that ive got it.....say....can someone tell me EXACTLY where that oil filter cartridge goes???? I admit it...i cant find the "sleeve" it fits in....

Should be top dead center behind the alternator. That's standard across all the Pentastar configs. Remember the cap is plastic. Hand tighten then a turn or two to snug.

In other words, don't break out the air ratchet
