I sure hope not! Just assuming. We'll see I guess
I will worked at a Chrysler plant before the Democrats shut it down. (Built the transfer cases) we always had the week after Christmas off and the higher sonority guys came in for double time to keep the line moving. I wouldn’t say any difference in quality. Everything is automated to the point if you don’t do your job correct, the cameras /sensors won’t let you send it down line.

And I'm sure there were time stamps when a certain part was put together. If it failed when it was your shift then I'm sure you could get canned.

😂boy I got some story’s about that! If you build a shift of bad parts you got rid of them before anyone found out. I once opened the door to the machine I was running to find 600 main shafts 😂 just scrape them and move on.

Wow Truck is at the dealers now. GM is seeing if anything can be done about the PFM issue. Wants to put on the accessory tow mirror pxg for me.Can not seem to find out if they are power folding. I do not see that they are.Like the offer but do not think they are going to work.

My dealer told me yesterday that they build them in color groups, so that makes a lot of sense. He also said anyone that wants the surround camera and automatic parking is going to be in for a very long wait. He indicated those chips are the really hard ones to source. Don't shoot the messenger, only passing along what he told me...
I’m not seeing many Ivory White TC PC’s
and of course I had to have all the tech, so maybe mid 2022?? Lol

Your dealer is feeding you ********. I work in a paint shop. We groups but I see almost every color every day except for some special colors.

Well to be fair, that’s what most dealers do.

It does make sense to me that it would save time, materials and labor to paint 100 red trucks, then reset and clean all the robots and paint 100 blue trucks. That said, I have no clue how robotic paint lines function at a manufacturing plant…

Ya want red it loads and paints red, ya want blue it loads and paints blue Ect... they do what the data they're sent tells them. Only rhyme or reason I notice is the more popular colors white, red, Grey, silver, black may come in small groups intermingled groups compaired to say a green, orange or brown which are done small batch when they have enough to validate running because of paint shelf life.

Just curious, is the G/T package been holding up things at all? Ive been reading what feels like a thousand pages in here, but haven't seen too many comment about having ordered that. I know I've got a lot of other options on mine the week likely hold up the order, but was just curious. It's only been 7 weeks since I got my Vin, but I made the mistake of test driving a G/T, and now I've gone into full lust mode for wanting mine. 😆
I don't think so. My order is pretty loaded, including the GT package. I ordered about three weeks ago and have a build date of 12/15 already. Like many others, I'm also of the belief that there is very little rhyme or reason to their pecking order. The pace at which they're building so many new orders does seem to suggest they're prioritizing the trucks with the newer higher price tags but who knows.

Hey Triple B, any chance you can pull the BS and WS for VIN127514. Dealer says they have it in storage and I want to be sure it has everything I need.
