Default 2014 order almost ready for shipment!

My order for a 2014 SLT, regular cab, 2 door, is at the Final Inspection stage of production this morning. This is on target as the production order that I received indicated a shipment date of today, 7/26. I ordered this truck on 6/28.

Cool! Is that 4x2 or 4x4? I ordered a regular cab SLT 4x4 on 6/20, still says Production Scheduled.

It is a 4x2 Big Horn, Flame Red, loaded, but the rear view camera was not available.

Yeah it seems like they aren't offering the camera on regular cabs, I couldn't get it either. So looks like they are building 4x2s, good to know, probably won't be too long before they switch over to 4x4s!

Huejack1- What wheels are you expecting? The Big Horn is suppose to come with 20" chrome clad wheels but the majority of SLTs that I have seen with the Big Horn package ended up with 17" chrome clad wheels (dealer may have overrode the package with this option). I asked my dealer if they could order 20"s and he answered, " No, must be a gas mileage thing".

In the Bigh Horn package, it clearly states 20" chrome clad wheels- 1st line item. This is what I want and I am not really interested in a suprise on this one. There was a post sometime back of a guy that got this surprise when ordering a SLT with Big Horn group.

ZINC....I ordered mine 6/22...had no idea re the VOTS system, or anything other than a casual remark by the sales mgr that Id get emails when the thing was being built and ready for shipment...I "discovered" the VOTS SYSTEM on 7/15, placed several calls to DODGE, managed (after some rather interesting calls) to get the VOD (dealer probably had it all along)...and started getting emails. THAT day I got one, on 7/16 I got TWO....then i discovered they may not be up to date, so I decided to call about once a week....and discovered that the VOTS system is, to put it as kindly as possible, somewhat behind the "real world"....pick up the phone, and get your VOTS and/or last 8 of your VIN.....either from the dealer, or better yet DODGE CS.....now, you may not like what you see/hear...you may decide its perfectly fine to sit and wait and know nothing...your choice..good luck...

After alot of soul searching, i decided to order my 14 SLT with the "BIG HORN" upgrade package 22z if i recall..WITH 17" wheels..why is another thread, and dont want to start too many.....it appeared i could do it based on the last few pages of technical data in the 13 book...Turns out, per the dealer, roughly 1/2 of the 13 model year trucks either were ordered that way, or just arrived that way..if someone wanted the 20's he would swap them at the dealership...i didnt ask for how much......he thought folks figured out that unless one wanted the 4x4, those bigger tires added nothing but "looks", were too expensive to replace, and knocked off some mpgs...which is a big selling point for the thing to begin with... how quaint...it almost sounded like the truth....AND it knocked $425 OFF the INVOICE price....which goes to show you just how much of that package IS wheels and tires....

My dealer printed out the Big Horn package details he got off his computer and it clearly states 20" aluminum wheels and tires. That was very important to me when I ordered the Big Horn package. It had better come in that way or the truck is his!
