Cochise here. Smokey's got you covered on the VIN#, did you get a build date?

When you and I were talking it was all up in the air as to weather your Dealer would be able to deliver.

Seem to have gotten things worked out on the truck, I ended up having them locate one for me in the southeast the way I wanted it all except for the two tone paint.So I am supossed to pick it up on wed.So we'll see if they can deliver it the way we have agreed. I would rather have ordered it but hey what the heck the price is right I believe they are trying to make up for dropping the ball in the first place with the order......I would wait but I need the truck for a trip in the middle of April to Upstate New York. So we will see how it turns out next week, so, for now it's off to Savannah for the St.Patricks Day festivities.
Hope all have a great weekend....

Cochise here. So, they still never got a build date on the unit you ordered?

Glad all seems to be working out, you just never know!

Keep us informed.
