Right because status JB means it has already left Brampton and is at the Upfitter so you're in the clear.

Sounds like the cars in the later stage of production will get completed.

You're very lucky. I called Dodge Customer Service this afternoon and even though my Challenger Scat Pack Wide Body got its VON and VIN number and is in "D Status" right now, they couldn't find my VIN number on their system. They told me that they will ONLY be able to see everything once my car goes into "D1 Status". I'm not 100% sure, but I think that D1 Status is when Dodge establishes and gives a build date for a car.

Can the "D STATUS" change to "D1 STATUS" during the whole time that the Brampton Assembly Plant is closed and at least give the "Build Date" of my Challenger? In other words, when the plant is closed during April 1st to April 14th, can Dodge still give the build date electronically via computer to schedule the build date for the car even though the plant is not building any cars? I would think that Dodge can still electronically give build dates to Challengers that already have VIN (Vehicle Identification Numbers) assigned to them even though the plant will be closed. Aren't build dates given electronically via computer? In other words, the Brampton Assembly Plant doesn't need to be open and operational to give D1 Status to a Challenger because the D1 Status is given electronically without having to have the plant be in operation. Has the Brampton Assembly Plant ever done this before? Or is this not possible?

I know it must be difficult but don’t let this eat you up. You’ll get the car and soon forget the anxiety of waiting and wading through the unknown.

I just finished a text chat through the Mopar owners site. Very useful btw for anyone who has it I happen to be signed up already from when I had my 2015 Durango. You might be able to sign up even without owning a car yet not sure.

Either way, they offer a chat with them option and they are super quick and I've gotten a live agent at 9pm est and just now 630pm est on a Saturday so pretty cool.

My scat pack widebody order was put in on 3/19 and as of just now it's still in d status gathering parts so I'm pretty much doomed to have 2 extra weeks added to my wait time. Well I tried to plan the order to have the car no sooner than summer so the new england roads here can have all the salt from winter throughly washed away as this will be a fair weather vehicle only. And it looks like I'm definately looking at a mid may delivery at the earliest. So that's OK I guess. I really want the car but if it comes too early I'm garaging it until nice weather so that might be harder to do then to wait without it.

As soon as it comes in though I am having hood pins installed and sending right to local shop for vinyl hood wrap tints expel and ceramic coat before I drive anywhere else so I'm itching to get all that moving. Still worth the wait to get exactly what I want.

I put my order in on 3/26/19 for a 2019 Challenger R/T Scat Pack Wide Body too. I received my VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and my VON (Vehicle Order Number) on the next day on 3/27/19. My Wide Body is in D Status right now too just like yours.

What makes you think that the delivery of your Wide Body will be happening the "earliest" at mid May just because the Brampton plant is going to be closed for the next 2 weeks until the 14th of April? I would think that even though the plant will be closed for 2 weeks that we should still be getting the build dates for our cars sometime between April 1st and April 14th before the plant reopens. I don't think that Dodge stops allocation of build dates for our Wide Body Scat Pack Challengers even though they are shut down for 2 weeks. I would think that Dodge will give us our D1 Status with a build date very soon and that our Wide Body Challengers will be built between the 3rd and 4th week of April when the Brampton plant reopens again. If this happens, we should be getting our cars between the 1st or second week of May at the latest.
Maybe other forum members who know more about this can also chime in on this regarding whether or not Dodge assigns a D1 Status with a build date even though the Brampton plant is closed for the next 2 weeks from April 1st to April 14th.

I just signed up on the Mopar website, but the live chat on it doesn't work at all. I try to click on the chat button, but when I point the arrow on the chat button, it doesn't change over to a finger pointer to allow me to click on it. The website's chat feature doesn't work. I don't know why? Is Dodge chat open only at certain hours and certain days? It's 6:32am EDT Sunday morning over here right now.
ALSO, when I enter my Wide Body VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of my car on the Mopar website, it tells me that "It has a problem adding my vehicle and to try again." Why is my VIN number not recognized in the Dodge Mopar computer system yet if the Dodge dealership already obtained and gave me both the VIN and VON numbers already?

Your vin won't add because you technically don't own the car yet. It's not registered to you therfore cannot be verrified in uconnect. I am not sure why your chat isn't working I only tried twice from my phone both times it worked instantly. Worst case though you should be able to get updates from your dealer. I just haven't needed to i actually got my von and vin from dodge direct through chat not my dealer.

As for thr time frame I just figured if it's 8 to 12 weeks without a shutdown I'm assuming it will be mid may. Not sure how fast thr Brampton plant pumps out or ships cars to the states but back and 15 when I had my rt Durango built it came out of Detroit and still took 10 weeks with no shutdowns. What color is your scat pack?

I just got through to Mopar Live Chat and they told me that their live chat was down for a little while and that's why I couldn't get through to them. They checked the status of my Scat pack Wide Body and they told me that it was still in D Status. I asked them if they knew how long that it will take for the D Status to change to D1 Status with a build date and they were completely clueless about this. They didn't even know whether or not the Dodge plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada allocates build dates to cars while the plant is closed. Totally clueless about this. These are the types of questions that are very important to us who order these cars and they need to know the answer to this simple question. I'm hoping that we both get a build date and D1 Status before April 14th before Dodge reopens its Brampton plant. If this occurs, then there's a greater chance that both of our Wide Body Scat packs will be built before or by the end of April. If that happens, then we will get our cars by the first or second week of May if the transportation situation to the dealer runs smoothly.

The color of my Scat Pack Wide Body is TorRed with the Black and Ruby Red seats and interior. I ordered mine with the black Scat Pack rear racing stripe that wraps around the back of the car. However, I did not order the sunroof, the front camera or the NAV. I didn't want a sunroof because I don't want to deal with leaks and creaking and flexing of the body while driving with that much available
le torque that this car has. Also, I live up here in the northeast where it's very cold with snow and rain for 6 months of the year, so I don't really need it. And I didn't want the front camera inside the lower grill spoiler because I found out that it always beeps when driving and it's very annoying. And I didn't order the NAV because I have a cell phone and use that for navigation. Plus I don't like the complexity of the NAV system and the privacy issues regarding the built in Apple connect and Android that it has on it. Especially when I have a passenger in the car together with me. But my Wide Body will have everything else in it that comes as standard equipment. That's plenty for me. I'm also leasing my car for 3 years/36,000 Miles, so it would defeat the purpose for me to spend extra money for a sunroof and for NAV. I will be driving my Scat pack Wide Body all year round both in the spring and summer as well as in the fall and winter time, so I don't care about it being a garage queen. I want to get a lot of use out of my car and enjoy it as my daily driver. And I don't care about driving it in the salt and snow up here. Especially when I will be returning it back to Dodge after 3 years. When that happens, I will lease another Challenger or by then maybe the new generation Charger depending on whether or not I like the new body style and its performance.

That's funny we are basically both having the exact same car built and we both live in the north east. I won't be daily driving mine though. I bought mine and this is more of a milestone thing for me. I've wanted a challenger since before they came back out in 08 and when they did I wanted a new one or old. Finally in a position now pushing 40 where I can afford to add this luxury to my life. I have 3 kids so my daily driver is a minivan lol.

But mine is also torred with black ruby red interior. I also opted for no nav. It has everything but also no tech package with adaptive cruise mostly bc mine is 6 speed manual and all you get for manual with that package is auto wipers and high beams for an extra 500 you can keep those things since I won't be taking it out in the rain much anyway and I think I can manage putting my brights on and off.

I did opt for the p zero summer tires bc like I said it will only be driven in good weather and you can't touch that price of 700 add on to buy those same tires after market.

I couldn't get the scat pack decal bc I opted for the new performance spoiler I like the way it looks and makes the car stand out as a new model year. But for some reason when they went to place the order if I picked thay spoiler I couldn't do the decal but it's all good bc when I get it and I have the hood wrapped ill also have the scat pack decal custom done in thr back I want mine to say 392 on the sides anyway in the middle of the stripe.

So yea some minor differences but for the most part same car being built likely around the same time going to the same region. I wonder withbthr slow sales currently how close they will be on the line to back to back what's the last six of your vin?

I am happy with my torred pick with all the options out there I don't see many torred or red in general on the road up our way often.

Is this a good time now to buy a new Challenger from the dealers lot due to the shut down?
