Well,

Technically speaking I've been waiting for my HCREWB since September 2021, it wasn't built before year's end and thus was canceled, Dodge decided to "clone" my order for 2022, however, such "clone" didn't include many other options that coincidentally are only available through a Jailbreak, so crazy long/short story my 2022 "clone" order is built and currently on transit to DC and my Jailbreak order is sitting on "D" status.

Hoping I won't be regretting relinquishing my option on that already built 2022 "clone" order...

To be fair to Dan Cummins, none of the above issues were to be blamed to them, in fact, all of my problems are on Dodge solely and Jake and Martin have done their best to even get me on a Jailbreak because that's the only stupid trim I can get what I originally ordered back in September 2021...

So feel free to buy my hellkitty "clone" order... With any luck there will be two different window stickers with my name on it! Crazy isn't it?

Yeah, I know, but in the past 3 years, I'll have spent 16 months waiting on Dodge to make me cars. I'm quickly losing my desire to wait.
Can't blame you for it... If it helps, just saw today that the Brampton's Union is calling for a Saturday extra shift (04/09/2022)... Nevertheless, while I haven't been waiting as long as you've been, i do understand the feeling and frustration, in my case Dodge built and delivered my clone (which is not exactly what I ordered initially) and is sitting at Dan Cummins as I type this and my Jailbreak order has been in D1 as of last Monday so my point is that you might still get your car but to everyone i say there's no logic in this allocation/production nightmare this whole mess is like playing the lottery...

Good Luck!

Question...Anyone Order a Jailbreak, and currently have another Hellcat and plan on keeping both. I am curious as to what the thought process is with the new Jailbreaks. I also realize that for the most part, you can't really order a Redeye with any options unless it's a Jailbreak.
The best you can get on a RE WB non JB is alcantara seats, H&K sound, sunroof, Nav, Technology pckg, and that's it, which is exactly what Dodge did with my 2021 order when they "cloned" it as a 2022 "fully loaded" non JB :LOL::LOL::LOL:.

They did build it and Dan Cummins seems like just got it sold this week...

Luckily for me I've learned this morning my JB is in Paint with a delivery data of 04/14/2022...

Been checking frequently for my build sheet today knowing I was pending inspection
It just showed up at 3:00, super excited now !
Mine showed up the day after paint status, however, has been sitting on "I" status for the last two weeks... Still no progress... I guess mine could be sitting on that parking lot where Slicks took some pictures yesterday... 🤷‍♂️

Yep, he is the owner of the dealership
Somewhere Riddic99 just realized he shoved his own foot where the sun doesn't shine... So much about people backing out (not that doesn't happen) I highly doubt that the own dealership's owner must be experiencing financial challenges... specially with an ADM like that one...

It's because greedy dealerships like this one that I've been struggling to get my hellcat since last year and on top of that I have to pay a premium just because Dodge has been increasing their price every quarter.

Sure, can't wait to move back to Venezuela just because of free market's sake... Wake up everyone, this ain't about free market, this is all rigged and we the peasants are the ones financing those [email protected]$$ above us.

And full disclosure to everyone, don't even try to preach me about communism/socialism, I ran away from Venezuela's shithole. That crap ain't funny, price control doesn't work and what many dealers do (and allowed by Automakers like Dodge) with their owners being able to order low volume trims/production year vehicles, only makes them richer by adding artificially inflated ADMs and selling them in their showroom just like "Jonathan Pearlmutter"...

:mad:

Has anyone heard anything about the stripes holding up releasing Jailbreaks for delivery? last night I checked with Dodge chat and "Maurice" was really adamant that my vehicle will be "very soon" ready to ship, car is still sitting in "I" status since April 8th and no window sticker available yet...

Well,

It feels like I've made some progress... Just checked with Dodge chat, no longer getting the inspection/quality "I" status....

Now I get the following response:

"Thank you so much for holding. I am showing that your vehicle has been built and is pending installation of additional equipment. This is a necessary step when additional features or optional equipment packages are added to the vehicle. Currently no Dealer ETA has been provided. "

So it feels like possibly "JB" status? who knows...

Yes I’m thinking I’m almost at that point I’ll wait a couple more months see if they pop an allocation and I’m then going to ask for the money back. Just doesn’t make sense.
Dealer is playing with your money and they know it...

They don't have an allocation and I highly doubt they'll get one, you are better of going with Dan Cummins or Koons.

Plus, if you are not so much into the options then why to bother to order a Jailbreak? You could've got a redeye with more options and driving it by now... (assuming you've placed the order Jan-Feb)

Yep destination fee. Lets back up...my bad for being snarky
I would think you could get your deposit back by contacting your bank and letting them know this dealership is holding YOUR money for no apparent reason. Get that done asap
Get in touch with Jake Stevens(hellcat jesus)at Dan Cummins in Kentucky and see what his allocation status is
He will be truthful with you no BSing around. I was put on a wait list for allocation, I believe 2nd on challenger list
Allocations must have come on 11th and he contacted me on the 12th April and I placed my order
Got a VON and BG status with magical codes and April 26 got my VIN and D status. MSRP and 1000$ down
They are not a power broker but Jake has got it done for a lot of folks on this forum. Read the threads
Power broker vs non power broker is a bunch of crap! Boils down to true JB allocation and who has them
I realize its a drive for u but it is for me too as i live in Michigan. Im gonna hit some whiskey tours when i go down:cool:
I am in no ways affiliated with Dan Cummins...just one brother trying to help another brother out
-Murf-
I can confirm this!

That's exactly what Jake and Martin did with my order, they made me wait till they got confirmation that they'll get an allocation before they placed my order, once they knew they got it they asked me if i was still interested, Feb 15th placed order and now vehicle is built and somewhere between Brampton and the Upfitters...

Thanks to all that responded. I have a feeling that they are not interested in participating, there must be some money they have to throw into the pot for the AR. They want every dime of this car.
Well, on paper if a dealer participates FCA (now Stellantis) will reimburse dealer the 1% below invoice price offer just like they normally do with rebates, problem is (from dealer’s perspective) that they have to sell you at invoice price, so difference between invoice and MSRP is not covered by Stellantis, on theory that’s dealer’s profit margin, reality there’s more incentives for dealers that one might not be fully aware…

Big congrats to ya bud. Wow blue calipers...busting out the box!
Wheel color?
Yeah, I know it’ll drive some controversy for sure but I didn’t like combo for the standard red hue calipers with Octane Red, Tor Red is actually a good match plus since this is what Jailbreak is about (crazy combinations…) I figured blue is something not expected but more acceptable than say yellow calipers… That would’ve ensure the Ronald McDonald’s car 🤪🤣

wheels are the standard carbon lightweight…

While looking for my vehicle's VIN number to check delivery status with dodge chat I noticed that Dan Cummins has a Challenger Jailbreak up for sale on their lot...


If there's someone who's tired of being played around with allocations, and wants one on black pitch with Hammerhead seats (ugh... not my preferred option for sure) then give a call to Hellcat Jesus and take it...

Good Luck...
