Hi All,

In early November 2020 I ordered a 3500, crew cab 4x4, Cummins HO, BigHorn. So far, research has revealed the build time and delivery time is all over the map. I've read due to Covic 19 safeguards used during production, production is very, very slow; then, I've read safeguards have minimal impact on productions rates? Additionally, I've read rail transportation has been affected as well? In todays environment, I just want to get a rough idea how long it will take from ordering to hitting the dealership. If this has already been addressed in other threads, please remove it.

Thanks
Chuck

No dealer estimate? Hopefully they have been ordering and receiving trucks the past 9 months and have a better idea than we do.

As you already know, lots of things can and will influence how long it'll take.
What is it in now? D?

And if you have ordered any extras, that aren't installed on the assembly line, add more to the 2-4 month guesstimate.

That 8-10 weeks for a Challenger cracks me up. We had one that took four months and eight days to make it to the dealer, and that's after it was built.
Approximate indeed.

Ordered a 3500 Laramie HO 4x4 CCLB on 8/10. Initial email from US customer care on 8/24 said it was scheduled to be delivered to the dealer the week of 10/24. Didn’t make it.
That week it was still at the body vendor.
It‘s been “in transit” in the system for a three weeks now.
Dealer said unrest in Mexico has caused delays in getting rail cars.
Email from the dealer today said it made it into the US and is supposed to be to them by the end of the month.

It can vary quite a bit. Some people have their orders in several months before production is even scheduled to start, for example.

Last night the dealership contacted me. My order was submitted 11 10 2020. Dealer provided the VIN # and ship date of 23 Dec 2020. Predicated upon above comments my expectations are level set. It's going to be a lets wait and see thing.

Finally placed my order yesterday. 2 different dealers were telling me anywhere from sometime in Jan to maybe March. As long as I have it by the first camping trip I'll be happy.
