Beautiful! Is there some type of paint protection on the bottom behind the rear tire. Is that all or is there some in other places down low?
It looks more like a tiny splash guard on both sides.

So still not sure exactly what lands one in the “backlog” bin but I have gotten some information pertaining to pre-production “backlog” orders. Apparently they are in the mid-late July range on building these and they trickle through at <5% plant capacity (doesn’t seem like a priority if you ask me) but if you couple this info with plant uptime (days running since production start) and the info people provide here on the spreadsheet marking build vs. order date. It seems to be that this “backlog” is cleared at a rate such that 1 week of pre-production customer sold orders is taking about 2 weeks to clear through the plant. ( this likely puts my build date into the end of February to early March) but not sure as still D status and ordered the week prior to production start up. But this would mean that there will be an inflection point in mid March where the plant is finally caught up on pre-production orders, the last ones should hit production by the end of the first week of March. Sad news for many of us… but at least they have a strategy it seems. Also maybe a note for people looking at ordering a 23 that you don’t need to run to order pre-production you can wait to see a more finalized equipment list that they actually know they have parts for and you will have a statistical advantage at being built sooner vs. jumping in and ordering at first availability. You might receive the truck the same day ordering 4 months later

Well i order my truck on 10/25 and it made it to twin oaks PA rail yard yesterday. Now I have to wait for it to make it to the dealership. My salesman said he has seen them delivered in 2 days and as long as 3 weeks. So now is another waiting game.

Finally got some pics from my salesman. 2.5” Carli level kit with track bar, method wheels, Nitto ridge grapplers tires. Have Go Rhino running boards and mud flaps at home waiting to install. Will finally be picking it up on the 27th. Can’t wait.

Welp. Looks like I am getting my first taste of the nonsense. Ordered on 12/11/21, was told by dealership went D1 on 12/20 (seemed quick) with an est shipping date of 1/29/22. Checked back today and told I am still D1 with "No ETA". Glad I haven't done more to prepare to sell my current ride other than put the stock shocks back on. Settling in for what feels could be a long/normal wait. The frustrating part is the complete lack of rhyme or reason as to why. Watched the build sheets start popping up for trucks ordered after me, along with their window stickers. Oh well, the longer they take, the better chance I have enough patience to not drive it in the snow/salt before getting the under coating (RP342) and ceramic done.

Rig FINALLY made it to the dealer after spending a month at the railhead storage lot…frustrating! Now making progress.
Here’s a few pics.

Well the wife's pickup showed up at the dealer yesterday morning. It's off to get window tint and leather before we pick it up. Our dealer is doing all the running for us so we will wind up taking delivery by the 7th. Already have nerf bars and a bakflip mx4 at home waiting to be put on hers.

Just an FYI for anyone wanting Katzkins in a mega cab, they are not making the kit right now. We're having to go with another brand which I can't remember right this second.

I noticed we are both located in the same zone for shipping. I was also told 1/29/22 for a ship date but my dealer didn’t seem too confident and said he would check on that a little further and get back to me. That was a few days ago. He doesn’t fully understand how to read the updates… I know this because he said “I don’t fully understand how to read this.” Lol. Tried Ram Chat and all they said was mine was scheduled to be assembled very soon. Hope it stands but we’ll see.
