The only info I have, from another forum, is that there's an issue with the frame and all 10 trucks might go to the crusher.... They built 10 3500 trucks yesterday and none of them passed inspection. As it stand right now, production on the 3500s have been put on hold, until the issue can be resolved.

I guess it depends on how one looks at it. For me, it's great news because it was caught before any trucks left the factory. It tells me they are dead serious about getting this truck done right.

The guy that reported the Frame problem, on CF, is now reporting his truck is getting ready to ship. He's trying to get more info to what might be going on at the MX factory..

Since he's truck is shipping, it seems they've found a fix and they are again producing... At least I hope the line has restarted....


On Edit - Update
He just posted again.. He said his normal contact in MX is in Auburn Hills right now, so he spoke with a guy that had broken English. From what he can tell, the Frame issue is on the Short Bed trucks...

I guess that explains why my order went from D1 to C status, this past Saturday....
