Maybe they are trying to cut down on the cost of Trucking it in? Not sure why they are telling you that. Hopefully you will get the truck soon and will be enjoying driving it and cleaning and MODDING the heck out of it.

Dealer wants to charge you a delivery fee.

I've heard a rumor that here in Canada allied trucking (the company that transports the new vehicles around) is on strike. not sure if its the same in the US or not or it's just a rumor but maybe there is some truth in it.

the dealerships around San Diego have several off site storage areas for new vehicles, several hundred cars are parked in different areas, same with pickups on different lots
these storage lots have camper trailers on the them, armed guards & dogs

Normally people would not know about these lots, because of the 8 foot fences around the property, but, i worked for the California Dept. of Transportation for 33 years & i had to clean the storm drains along the Highways/Freeways & at some sites i could look down into the yards from on top of bridges, etc. One such yard is at Interstate 8 & the 805
The dealerships also store next years models in there, when they start producing them & are not yet ready to display them

How sad. I live around Detroit and didn't even know about the allied transport strike. Drove out to the fairgrounds and sure enough the place is filled with brand new rams. The salesperson told me about it sitting there and all I could think about was it was in an accident and they needed 2 week bondo a brand new truck before shipping it out. With any luck the Longhorn will be in my possession tuesday. Thanks for replies.

Doesn't make any sense. When I buy a new vehicle it has less than 5 miles on the odometer. Something is fishy.
