    Just an idea, I think it would be nice to have a sticky thread under the latest GEN General Discussion for people to share experiences / questions in regards to tracking the build / order for new trucks. Just ordered mine.. I'm guessing it going to be 14 weeks (minimum). :rolleyes:

    Are you ordering a 5th Gen or Classic Ram
    Which size, 1500, 2500, 3500 or even larger

    Classic 1500s are built in Warren Michigan
    5th Gen are built in Sterling Heights Michigan

    Standard Cabs & Heavy Duty Rams are built in Saltillo Mexico

    The Sterling Heights Assembly did not close to reconfigure the plant to abide by the Covid-19 distancing & other requirements
    The Chip shortage only affected things like the Blind Spot Mirror or Surround View orders.

    The Warren Plant just reopened after modifying the plant to meet the Covid standards
    The chip shortage is affecting the Premier radios, steering & brakes
    Hopefully more chips will be available soon

    Great info, thanks! I ordered a 1500 Big Horn with no blind spot or surround view, I guess that may help the lead time :)

    I would like to see a separate section rather than in the gen discussion area. Talk off new truck orders clutter the thread, in my opinion. It is great information, just in its own section. Just my 2 cents.
