I saw that. Glad I was able to get it. Been eyeing that color since I bought my last one
Its my first choice but if I have to change it then I'm stuck between Patriot Blue and Delmonico Red. I have all lights grilles etc to convert it to a night edition. I just didnt want the typical white, silver, black or gray. Wanted something different.

It looks like a lightly optioned Rebel keeping with the current pattern of production.
This is most likely the best and worst answer there is, for this ordering clusterfuck

Yeah, it seems apparent that they're not "waiting for parts" for some of our orders...they're just stretching their parts. Instead of making one highly-optioned truck, they can make 3-4 trucks with pieces and parts of our orders.
For example, you can see my build in my signature below.
49 trucks today have Ramboxes
17 trucks today have Tech Group
114 trucks today have Pano Sunroof

But lookie here:
1 truck today has the Multi-Function tailgate (surprising and concerning)
1 truck today has Advanced Safety Group (also surprising and concerning)

Hopefully they are stacking up ASG and MFT components to get rolling on more builds that have those. I still find it hilarious I thought my build would go quicker because I didn't want the pano.......

Big Horn 479
Laramie 287
Rebel/Sport 217

Longhorn 37

Remember when there was a theory floating around that 6'4'' beds were getting priority? The Dodge Dakota remembers.

I have seen a smattering of TRX's online. Most all of them are "base" models. Maybe they are caught up with what they want to allocate to dealers for now?

What's the average time from ship date to picking it up at the dealer?
Mine shipped 9/28 and was delivered (after a week or so sitting in Texas on the way to CA) and was delivered on 10/25.

I'll also toss in that looking at build sheets over the past few weeks it does seem like plenty of 10th anniversary editions are getting rolled out (which includes MFT). I don't see MFT being short in supply, at least not enough to hang up producing that particular package.

I still think Stellantis is priortizing quantity over all else. I bet if you ordered a base Laramie 4x2 today you would see it go D1 within 2 weeks and down the production line within 3 weeks, max.

I mean, it makes sense. Of course they're going to build two trucks instead of one.

And I know it has to be frustrating to have an order in since earlier this year, but no one really "got in line" until they started production.
