What was the build date? That's some hard info that you should know. Also, if the truck was built, a VIN should be available to you. As far as the transportation from the "port" to the dealership, that might be unpredictable since they probably won't be sending an 18 wheeler out there to pick up your truck and drive it from Cinci to Memphis. I'm sure there is some sort of queue involved.

That means the order hasn't been picked up by the factory. More likely, he doesn't have a build date because your order simply means that he is trying to find a truck that is going to be built and allocated to him or someone he can trade with. When I got my build date it was about 4 weeks way with delivery taking approximately two more weeks.

I think we both fell for the same line..."There's a truck on the list that is being built in two weeks and it meets your specs perfectly! Put a deposit down and I'll trade for it for you" Then it doesn't go through and they've locked you in.

I really can't complain, though. My salesperson stated very clearly that she couldn't guarantee that she could get the truck. However, at least I knew it was a configuration that was being built in that region and was likely to be built again - and it was. I have heard, here, that some folks get notified a month later that "they aren't building trucks like that in this region".
