Default hemi 8speed been in JS Status

my build has been in JS status since last Friday (shipped to storage). and today they just changed the ETA to 3/6.

it looks like GT's gonna give me an "i told you so!!!" haha!!

oh well, if i see it by 3/6, that was still around 7 weeks total, well within the 6-8week estimate.

i should be on the downhill slide.........

I am in the same boat. On the plus side, I didnt think they would start being built until March 4th, so anything before that is a bonus! Did you order yours from Stew Hansen?

i will tell you that i saw a buddy tear up a 1500 gmc just like mine with his 25' Boat to the river and back. he switched to a sweet 2011 Ram Turbo D 2500. That thing could pull my house down road if you wanted it too.

Timing, Ram Box, and best 8cyl 4x4 mpg got me to switch.

At least you know where your truck is.
VOTS says mine is scheduled for production. It's been saying that for 10 days. My dealer says it is D1 status with a ship date of 2/28/13. Customer Service says it was built 2/15/13. I need to quit checking

Also, i can tell you that VOTS went straight from Production Scheduled to Shipment Status. i dont know if i caugt it wrong, it was 2nd or 3rd shift. i dont know, but VOTS was usless to me. Dealer Connect is pretty accurate.

Yes Dealer Connect is pretty much bang on. it what the dealers as well as Ram customer service use. It's works off of the network used by Chrysler. nothing will be more accurate then Dealer Connect.

I'm currently driving a 2500 with a cummins. I was poking around the dealer looking at a 2011 Laramie with a cummins and decided to test drive a 2013 with a Hemi. Decided to try it. I don't pull much of anything now so I don't need to be paying that extra money for the diesel.
