In fact she interrupted me and said " I am here to make you a offer to resolve this and that is it" no friendlyness about her
Wow the guy I've been talking with has been nice.
He sounds quite young too, and on top of that, he made a point to say he lived about 50 minutes away from me for most his life until he moved 1.5 years ago for the job at Impartial. He was also very interested in what I do for a living and talked a bit about that too.
So I think he actually may in fact be on my side.
On Friday when he called he even said, he wanted to resolve this early this week and wanted me to go to the local dealer and get everything in order, even if that meant ordering a new truck.
So he wasn't wasting any time either. But so far, no call today.
I did send him an email about an hour ago asking him if I can expect a call from him today to get this all resolved asap.

How are you getting that detailed info? Your dealer? As I recall you ordered yours a couple days after mine (mine was ordered on 8/3), so maybe there is hope for me too.....

But you can get the info from your dealer too...

Crabjoe, you have a ship date of 9/4 right? I think I read that in another thread. My ship date is 9/5 and it is still D1. I am interested on when yours finally hits the line!

My ship date changed over the weekend to 9/5...

Once my truck hits the line, I'll report back... But as it stands... still D1, even thought it's suppose to be built today.

I just found out that mine is scheduled to start down the assembly line on 9/10 with an estimated shipping date of 9/12, but I did get the bed liner so that will probably add a couple days, from what I hear.

Default 2014 Sport delivery

I ordered my 2014 std cab 4 x 4 on 07.02.2013, and I picked it up today (09.03.2013).
It took a few weeks longer than estimated to get to frame status, and overall was about two weeks longer to arrive, not too bad.....

I think the VOTS system is a bunch of smoke and mirrors though, I don't think it has taken 10 days to assemble a domestic vehicle since 1908. In my experience it has always been 12 - 24 hours from start to finish (not including inspection) Granted, these hours could fall on a weekend or Holiday, but even then it would be no more than three or four days, not ten.....

Typically yes. When you get to vendor supplied/installed parts such as the bed liner, that can throw a monkey wrench into the schedule.

VOTS is about 18-36 hours behind the data. This means you rarely will see it go through all the steps in VOTS but sometimes you can catch it in one of the build steps if all the stars align.
