LOL
My Ram was already on the dealers lot when i bought it
I guess because of the unusual color, it had not sold & they had put it way in back of the building, it had a flat tire & the battery was dead or disconnected
I had been looking for a basic truck w/ bluetooth & a satellite radio & highway geared rear end, preferably a 3.42
I got mine at a reduced price, again i think because no one wanted an ORANGE truck

When they finally moved several vehicles to get to mine, & drove it out,
I stood there & watched them detail it, washing, pin striping, airing up the tires, I saw how tall it was & the salesman asked if i was ready to drive it & i told him NO, he drove it & hardly explained anything, 20 minutes later we were back on the lot, i did the paper work. i never even looked at the front of the truck, i drove my old Chevy home, picked up a friend, went back & picked up the RAM, my FIRST time driving it, my friend followed me home. I popped a beer & my friend looked at the Ram & pointed things out as he saw them
My mind was already thinking about making it into work vehicle, all the Mods that i needed to do to get it ready to put it to work. My friend was under the Ram & calling out things he saw. Then he looked at the front of it & saw that huge Rams head & went nuts over it, that is when i finally looked at the grill, etc. Then i started thinking how nice the ORANGE stood out & that i was going to get noticed by drivers & how they wouldn't want the UGLY Orange paint on their vehicles
The next 5 months the Ram was in different shops getting ready for working,
I started noticing that other people were now buying that UGLY ORANGE colored vehicles, not Orange pickups though.
5 months after i bought it, i still only had about 700 miles on it & i drove it 7,600 miles as a test drive, coast to coast & up into Toronto & then returned home.
I made a couple more changes, called my contacts & put the Ram to work

I was beginning to enjoy the truck, & what it could do. I joined this RamforumZ to find out more about Dodge Rams & i learned a bunch & when i go to the dealership i know more about them then they do, i still hear them telling customers, They all do that
By the way, the dealership has not had another ORANGE RAM for sale, since i bought mine in February '09
Now i am a PROUD Sunburst Orange '09 Ram owner
only dents & dings are from mindless people in parking lots & 1 done by me, again in a parking lot, backed into a corner of a building

Once again, STILL at the yard. Does anyone know what "paper receipt" means on the Insight tracking site? Thanks.

Mine just got to JB status. The waiting is horrible. Oh well as long as it comes in before the second week of June. Towing the boat up to VT for a tournament and really want to ditch my current P.O.S. and drive a good truck up there. 13 hrs to get there.

That sure would be nice. Hopefully it arrives, they should all be starting to move fairly quickly now. I've heard that for a while though.

Yes it would. I would love to know exactly what the body vendor is and if that is a normal phase of production. First it was shipped to storage, I thought cool it'll be here soon. Now shipped to body vendor. Kinda seems reverse order to me. But what do I know! LOL

I was thinking the same. But it looks like thats the normal process theu go through. Happened to mine and others I've looked at. I got all excited thinking it would be here soon then its back in the yard. lol oh well im enjoying learning a lot on this site but I think the mods are gonna make me broke. I can see why they're addicting.

I know every truck is different, But on average, how long did it take to go from JB status to driving it home?
