It looks like it bounced back and forth between D and D1 during the summer, the original ship date was 7/15, then 9/10, 9/9, 9/13, 9/14. I'm still curious what hung it up, but my bet is on the Brass Monkey stuff, it doesn't seem to be a common/popular option.
Same thing is happening with TRXs, so it's probably not just the wheels.

Saw you were in the hospital but missed why? What happened? Glad you’re ok.
Thank you.
Got Covid, took medicine for five days, ended up with pneumonia and had to be intubated and paralyzed on a ventilator for 11 days, I came home 7 days later. I almost bought the farm with only 95 miles on my Hellcat. I'm weak and my lungs are lazy since the vent was breathing for me and I lost 30lbs most of which was muscle mass and my fine motor skills have returned 100% Two weeks ago I couldn't even feed myself. I'll recover 100% but it will be a long road.

Good afternoon ladies & gents. So Mopar family the build sheet showed up today. Finally what a feeling I can tell you when I hit that link and it showed up I almost jumped out of my car in excitement. I’m getting close real close!!!
What link? How do I find a build sheet for my order?

So if nothing shows up on either of these pages (I have a VIN), then it's likely that my estimated ship date of 9/17 is bogus correct?
Well not necessarily but more than likely yes sorry to tell you. I would personally call Dodge directly and have them provide you the most updated information. I started to bug them on a daily basis once my vehicle was in D1 status for over 30 days as once that occurs they are able to send your Vin number to upper management to see if they can expedite.

Yeah I've never done ceramic coat before, just thinking about it since this will be my keeper. PPF would be a good idea too. I didn't even think about window tinting, I'll have to ask about that too. I'll be driving it no North FL as well haha.



Thanks!! Hopefully yours isn't too far behind! Maybe PPF and regular wax would be the way to go. Def doing the window tint. I want the car a 100% when I pick it up if I can make that happen.
Where are you at Eddy, I’m getting there soon bro. Please send some pics of the car then I’m bout to get. I really need to see that F8 green redeye I can’t find it anywhere else so I figure I might as well ask you. Also any input on delivery I’m reading a lot about quality issues anything specific I should be looking at the car, anything you saw in your vehicle?

I figured as much, and get it. I ordered 7/26 and was expecting to take delivery around Halloween. If it comes sooner, awesome. I had my hands on a local one, same build I was doing - plus navigation. The dealer was trying to destroy me on price so I walked and ordered. Now waiting, they better come through at some point :)

Guys, I have said this before. Don't go by the ship date, or any date.
I ordered 5/17, got the VIN within days and after a delay my ship date was 8/30.
Well guess what ? The car arrived at the dealer on 8/24.
The MDH shows my car was built on 8/7 during the 8pm hour.
That means it took 17 days from assembly to arrival at my east coast dealer.
That was before the FCA ship date. How that happen ? Don't trust those dates.
Sit tight and relax.

Damn man. Glad you’re on the way back. We were forced by my sons school to send him and we were the last to do it. Less than 2 weeks later we get a close contact call. 2 days later we all test positive including my pregnant wife. She had to spend a day in the hospital. Now I’m suffering from altered smell and taste and have been losing weight and I have rapid heart arrhythmia with dizzyness I need to see a specialist for. My Hellcat brings me joy and if Covid doesn’t kill me it can’t take that away like my love for food. Take care of yourself.

Picked up the car last week and home safe! Amazing drive back. I checked the car for shipping damage (wheels, obvious dings/scratches) and thankfully there was none. Paint looked perfect but that could have been the ceramic coat hiding any factory defects. Nothing negative to report on my end thankfully!

It has probably been said a thousand times by now, by you, me, and others.
Unfortunately, facts and logic doesn't seem to stand a chance against emotions when it comes to car orders...and a few other things.

Everyone make sure you check the direction of the tires ! Mine were on wrong. View attachment 579251
I JUST saw a TikTok of a Ford engine sent out, brand spanking new, gleaming aluminum, with all its plastic plugs in place in the various orifices, straight from Ford.

Mechanic opened the drain plug on oil pan and you have never seen such a clean, crystal-clear flow.

Oh, in case you assumed anything, that engine has NEVER had oil in it. Just water.

It came from Ford full of water.

Read that again.

Believe it this time.

Never.
Assume.
Anything.
