Yeah that's a normal vehicle progression right? Long story short. I am recently divorced and have to buy myself a present :D, I hate how slow the ED is, I don't really want to deal with the headache of all of the diesel emissions and maintenance outside of warranty periods without at least enjoying the vehicle.

I put down my deposit yesterday afternoon on a 23 model. The lady at the dealer said it already had a VIN this morning which I thought was cool. She said 4/5 months is what I should expect. I was thinking 5/6 so we are pretty close. In either case it should be a really fun summer!

I went from an ED to a Hemi a few years ago for similar reasons. It's probably a good thing that they weren't making the TRX at the time or I would have bought one then. I've since come to my senses and am very happy with the Hemi. Keeping that Hellcat engine fed earlier this year would have put me in the poor house.

Enjoy your new truck when you get it. It's gonna be a long 4-6 months. :cheers:

Sounds like a scream! But feeding that SC V8 premium gas at maybe 10mpg would be a tough one, unless it isnt your DD.
