    I just ordered a 1500 Longhorn on 2/14 (Happy Valentines Day).
    This will be my fourth Dodge truck but the first time I've ever factory ordered any vehicle.
    I'm looking forward to the experience.
    My question is, about how long should I expect to wait before I start getting the email updates?
    and/or how long until the Vehicle Order Tracking system should start working for me?
    I have the VON but it tells me that it or my last name is incorrect... I'm pretty sure they're both correct so I assume it's still too soon.
    any guesses?

    My truck of choice is:
    Longhorn, 5'7" stdrd box, crew cab 4x4
    3.0 EcoDiesel (obviously)
    Prairie Pearl Coat
    Canyon Brown/Lt. Frost Beige with the Filigree seats
    Pretty much loaded with all the options minus the moon roof (just wouldn't use it)
    Cost: more than my first home and way more than anyone should admit paying for a vehicle ;-)

    Thanks. Looking forward to being part of the forum.


    I got word today from the dealer that my truck is scheduled to arrive in the Salt Lake City rail yard on April 2nd.
    He expects it will take about another week to get it me here in St George (the very bottom of the state).
    So, if all that his true I'm expecting to have my truck by mid-April.
    That's about a month sooner than I expected.

    Hey there Fishbob,

    How about that, now there's two of us. When I ordered on the 14th, they told me I was the 1st to order from them. I wonder how many more EcoDiesels are headed to Dixie.

    Yeah, I ordered from Steven Wade... there the only game in town. Vegas ain't too far but I wanted to keep it local and they've treated me ok in the passed.

    I sure wish Lunt Motors was still a Dodge dealer up in Cedar... could a got a much better deal since my wife is a Lunt. Oh well....

    With any luck, in a month and a half or less there will be at least two nice shiny Ram EcoDiesels scooten around town...

    Happy waiting!

    Dr. Honda, I see you now are at C status. We ordered the same day and I still do not have a status. Did you get the email from ram, and can you see you info on VOTS? Mine still says wron tracking number or wrong name.

    Actually, I'm at D status. (but I had SPP track a second truck, hopping it was already built, but it was still at C)

    Yes, I got an email from Ram with my VIN, and I can get into the VOTS system now. But, I couldn't get into the VOTS with only my VON.

    I did learn something though...

    1) some dealers may not submit the order right away. So, I demanded my VON before I left the dealer when I ordered. I read a few times where guys didn't get the VON for a couple weeks after.

    2) just because the dealer ordered the truck, doesn't mean they have any location left. OR, they are over extended. (ie, they can't pay for the truck)

    3) Some dealers are lazy. If there was a problem with the order, they may not contact you.

    So... if you had your VON for a week or so... and haven't gotten your VIN... then I would contact the dealer, and get the status code on your build sheet. If it's clear on their end, the code will be AX.

    I just read over your build... and I know that right now, there is a shortage of air suspension parts... and that will delay your build.

    The day after you got your VIN i got mine and the email from Ram to the VOTS site. I actually am ok with getting the truck sometime in May. As long as it is before June 2nd when my $500 certificate expires.
