Default How long will the wait be????

Just looking on the ram build site and there is only three colors to choose from now! I now have a von# and it's in C status as of this Saturday. Dealership told me my Outdoorsman (ordered last Saturday) should have made it before the color "cut off". Cherry Red was a tough choice to make over the deepwater blue. Hope my decision isn't a extra few months of waiting!

keep your fingers crossed that they still have that color, when your Ram goes down the line

if they run out, then you will have to wait a extra couple months

nothing like a earthquake, tsunami, & nuclear power plant that can't put out electricity to mess up your delivery date

I feel you Canuk,

I'm in the same boat but mines Brilliant Black. I'm waiting for the dealer to let me know he's calling back this afternoon.

Fingers crossed!

You all are gonna have to wait for a long, long time....maybe....

If the nuke plant issue is resolved soon or the paint mfgr in that area has to relocate and start up operations elsewhere, who knows how long it will take.

And I'm sure no one really knows.

Ramman27, when did you order your sport? I've tried to call the 1-800 number with my von# and they tell me all the info for build has to come thru the dealership, it's a canada thing? Good luck, hope it's good news

Chrysler Canada restricts order scheduling due to potential paint shortage
March 30, 2011

Due to a potential paint pigment shortage from a supplier that has been impacted by the disaster in Japan, Chrysler is restricting the scheduling of orders of vehicles in the following colors:

Nero (Black) - PXR
Rame (Copper) - PLB
Pearl White Tri-Coat - PWH
Brilliant Red Tri-Coat - PRA
Chrysler Canada has indicated that this scheduling restriction is necessary as they work through timing and availability issues with the supplier base.
We will continue to provide updates as the situation progresses.

i read this on a website
I hear the new pigment coming out of Japan will be called radioactive red

Hey guys,

Dealer called me today and said my order went through and is scheduled for production April 21st. They do have paint left for existing orders and it looks like mine will be fine. (I'll be livid with the dealer if it doesnt go through)

Canuk I finalised the deal March 15th. The wait has already been killing me and some good news today was nice. I just hope it isn't false hope and I get another call soon with bad news. I hope you get some good news as well. I haven't tried the 1-800 # yet myself but it could be a Canadian thing. I'll let you know when I try.

It's not a Canada thing it's everywhere. I ordered my 3500 Laramie on Mar 30 and couldn't get the Rugged Brown due to paint supply issues. The supplier in Japan is a tier 3 supplier and manufactures the pigment for all the 'pearl' colors and has a global patent on the pigments. They also supply GM & Ford. The GM truck plant was ideled this week because of paint supply. I don't forsee a quick fix for this so I changed to Brilliant White two tone. I wouldn't want to have a vehicle in the collision shop right now, would most likley have to drive it with primer for a few months untill things get back to normal.

I didn't mean that the paint thing was just for us Canadians

I meant for the 1-800 number, if us Canucks can track our trucks through the build process. I haven't tried it yet and don't have the number off hand. It's in one of these threads somewhere.
