Default So exactly how long does it take to build a truck?

Hey Everyone.

I ordered my truck March 1st. I was told expect 8-12 weeks. I live in Canada and realize it takes longer. The sales manager says he will put a rush on it .....right.

I phoned a couple weeks ago and they said they have VIN number, but it will still take a while. I phone today and the salesperson says its still on the production line. How long does it take to build a truck? Was really hoping to have it by the long weekend here ( May 19th ), but now I'm thinking its going to be past the estimated 12 weeks.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

8 weeks has barely passed, gotta remember its not just one order, they have many thousands of orders for trucks as the 2012 model year winds down and the gear up for 2013. I would figure it will be too you soon though! Did you still get all the RAM truck incentives and all dealer incentives when you order a truck??

I get it for $1,000 less than dealer cost at time of pick up. so if the 9750 rebate is still on Ill get that or whatever deal they have at the time. the wait is now killing me. if i don't have the truck by the 19th I'll have to borrow my friends GMC to pull my trailer for the weekend.

Or you supposed to be towing with them brand new?... I also thought there was a bitof a break in period needed first before doing that. I'm not 100% on this, just something I remembered reading.

Anyways, nice to see someone else from B.C I'm just across the bridge in maple ridge

Mine was ordered by my dealer on March 20 and I picked it up on April 17. I'm in Key West, which tends to be an "extended delivery zone" as well.

If the past is used as a guideline

The 16th of June the plant will close

The new 2013s Factory Orders can usually be ordered in the first week of July

Production will begin about July 9th

2013 models should start being delivered about the last week of August

the website Inside Line usually writes something up as soon as they know

I was told by my dealer that Dodge recommends no towing anything of major size like a travel trailer till there is at least 1000 km or about 600 miles.
