Well i called and they told me that they are picking parts for my truck as we speak. it is supposed to be assigned a VIN in 3-4 days. she told me to call back if i didn't receive an email by monday

That rep has no idea what is going on... The only thing they know for sure is what is listed as the status... Picking parts is a guess on that rep's part, based on the status code....

F - finance hold - automatic cancellation after 15 days
B - model or option build out
L - material restriction
M - material hold (fleet)
ZA - canceled order
Scheduled:
C - tentative schedule
D - firm schedule: serial number assigned, approx time in station - 5 days
D1 - gateline: unit sequenced for production, est ship date assigned, Approx time in station - 12 days
Build:
E - framing
F - paint
G - trim
Built:
I - unit built, pending final inspection
J - vehicle passed final inspection but not released to carrier
JB - shipped to body vendor
JE - shipped to emissions
JJ - consigned to body vendor
JS - shipped to storage
KZ - released by plant and invoiced

Crabjoe,
That is great info for all who order Rams to have--perhaps it should be posted as a sticky somewhere for all who order trucks to know about!

I just called VOTS and my 2014 Ram is still in stage "I"----it's been built but is still being inspected!

Dang... So is my 2013 Ram. At the rate things have been going, I think there is a chance you'll have your 2014 before I get my 2013. Sucks to be me, I guess...

My dealer's website shows a 2014 regular cab 4x4 Tradesman as In Transit, with a link to the window sticker, so the regular cabs are definitely starting to ship out of Mexico!

Proof my butt! I ordered a '13 in Jan... Had multiple build dates scheduled ... I cancelled my order, in May, because they still hadn't built it...

Mine was to be built in MX, because it was a Ram HD...

Did you get a spray in bed liner? Side Steps? These kinds of things are put on at a secondary location. So after being built the truck is shipped offsite, accessories are installed, and then sent back for final inspection. Or you could have gotten selected for the 100% inspection.
