Congratulations. Hope it won't be too long of a wait.

Back in 2008, it took 7 months from my initial order to delivery!

Yea......what he said! You offered WAY too little info! Mine took 5 weeks from order to delivery, and I think transit was slowed down by Sandy.

Congrats and pass along the particulars please

Hey I don't know if you we're told but the plant is not making any new cars till January 1st. I ordered my rtc redline red with white stripes, three weeks ago and the estimated delivery is mid to late march

What is their reason for the production stoppage?

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Thanks guys! Sorry for not being more specific. Here are the particulars hot off the VOTS presses!

Current Vehicle Status : Production Scheduled




Vehicle Details:
  • Tires/Wheels
    • 245/45ZR20 255/45ZR20 Perf Tires
    • 20X9.0 Black Vapor Chrome Alum Whls
  • Color/Trim/Seating
    • Prem Leather Trimmed Bucket Seats
    • Dark Slate Gray
    • Phantom Black Tri-Coat Pearl
  • Sound Systems
    • Uconnect 730N CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV
  • Additional Features/Packages
    • MOPAR Interior Appearance Group
    • Harman Kardon Audio Group
    • Stripe Delete

    • 6.4L V8 SRT HEMI Engine
    • 6-Speed Manual TREMEC Transmission
  • Other(s)
    • Customer Preferred Package 21X

Not worried about the delivery date.... dealer said at best it would be a February delivery but I shouldn't count on it....and the later the delivery the better it is for me financially. One other thing......I had seen photos elsewhere on the forum of the new Black Vapor Chrome wheels and wasn't wild about them. They looked to dark to me in the photos but when I saw them in person (on a Jazz Blue SRT8) they looked great and weren't to dark at all! I think they're going to look REALLY good on that Phantom Black!
