I talked to my dealer yesterday and he said we specifically asked the factory to do it when I ordered the vehicle. No doubt that if they receive a truck as part of their regular allotment that does not have it, they will have a local guy do it.
Kawartha have there own employees spray the boxes, no sub out-all in house. The dealership I bought from sends trucks out to line X. Kawartha told me they spray all trucks and never order from factory unless its a package included with models like Laramie. Kawartha have made an investment to be able to do application so its hard to imagine they would let plant do it when they can make more money doing it themselves. I am in no way saying it is inferior, it looks neet, uniform and a heavy coat.

That said, look at your build sheet on line, if its listed then plant will apply liner in MI, if its not on build sheet then its done in Peterborough.

All dates, times, and locations are estimated. The build date is usually accurate to that date plus or minus 24 hours but it is still just an estimate and could change. Estimated shipping date is not the date the truck will ship to you but the date it is estimated to be available to be shipped and most likely will change. See the links below for more details.

Hi Everyone

I am new to the forum and just wanted to say "Hi" to everyone! :smileup:

spp, I there a way you can add me to the list for build updates? I just order my new Ram a couple of weeks ago and got my VON number today. The VON is #32454915.

Thanks!

Tom

Not a problem but I'll take care of you in the 2015 forum as that's a 2015 VON :)

It's down to one. And that one has one last check before it leaves the factory.

I hope not. The dealer said they got it in on time for a 2014 Ram. Can you tell for sure from the VON that it is a 2015 truck?
No but when I looked it up it came back with a VIN that has the last 8 characters starting with "FS" which means it's a 2015 (F) being built at Warren Truck Plant (S). That and the system says it is a 2015 ;)

It's got a date to be built so it's all good. Only hiccup may be shipping as they are still in ramp up mode for the '15s so everything gets the once over.

If I remember correctly, ordering for 2014 1500s was cut off after the July ordering period. August 2015 and beyond was all 2015 ordering.

Oh well. I was really counting on the 2014 incentives. I would have settled for something off the lot if I would have known it was going to be a 2015. I called the salesman today and said I wanted the one he ordered me for the same price as the 14 with incentives. He told me know way, he would just cancel the order. Not sure what to do at this point.

Let me know what you are looking for in terms of trim, drive, cab, bed length, must have options/colors, won't have options/colors and I can take a look to see whats available and point you in the right direction.

Wow, three days in QA check? I thought that was a 10 minute process. Do you think this is another long detailed check to make sure everything is right?

Thanks again for the feedback SPP.

Thanks spp. I am looking for a 1500, crew cab, 6'4"box with the ecodiesel. I was trying to stay with a tradesman or outdoorsman to keep the price down. I have attached my build sheet from the 2015 that the salesperson ordered for me. I also attached a build sheet for a outdoorsman if I had to go that route. I don't know why the Ram site is so hard to search just on the engine option.

Thanks,

Tom

I'll take a look in the AM to see what I can find. And that search thing is about to change... :)
