No, at least not the Tradesman. I ordered a 1500 in July 2022; it was built before the end of August, and in December it was still sitting in Mexico. So I cancelled the order because no way, no how should I have to wait more than 90 days for delivery of a truck. In January last year (2023) I ordered a 2500. They had it to me in 60 days. I guess they didn't want a repeat performance.
I read your story in another thread... That's crazy! I had no idea mine was going to move along so quickly. The dealer told me at the end of November that it would be 4-5 months before we would see it. Now, it's updated from 1/30/24 arrival to now showing 2/09/24 arrival. I'd imagine because of the winter weather that's pushed through the mid-west with high winds delayed movement a bit.

I was told when I ordered that 1500 that it could take "up to" 120 days/4 months. That seemed a bit long to me but meh, at that point I felt I could wait. I believe I ordered it on July 3rd 2022, and I gave them $1000 as a show of good faith; the update told me the build was completed on Aug 21st. I waited patiently until the first week in December and the update still said shipping TBD, and at that point it had been 5 months with no estimate on when it would ship so I told them to keep it. It finally did end up shipping about the 2nd week in January 2023... over 6 months since I had ordered it. And I had thought I was being more than reasonable by originally agreeing to wait 4 months. There is a saying, "Proper Prior Planning Prevents **** Poor Performance (the Seven P's). Their supply and shipping issues are not my concern.

Then when I told them I was going to order a 2500, the Sales Manager wanted me to give them a $2000 non-refundable deposit. I laughed and stood up to walk out and he changed his mind. He said, "You know I can't guarantee when it will ship." I replied, "I know that is out of your control, but if it isn't delivered in 90 days I'm going to cancel this order also."

So this is interesting: Dealer said my truck was getting offloaded from the train to await a transport truck in Lordstown, OH yesterday (1/18). EST arrival showed 1/29 still as of last night. This morning I go to check it again and now it says 3/11. Lol! Anyone else see this when they were waiting on their order?

Congratulations! I ordered a 24 2500 rebel on 2/19/24. Mine is in the scheduled queue. I’m guessing I’ll get it the middle of April.

Congrats!! Hopefully my timeline will give you some guidance on when to expect yours. I’d say you’re right on for middle of April. Let the anticipation begin!!
