No longer in Toledo!!! Dealer just called & said my hydro blue sport-s is in St. Louis, awaiting a truck ride home!

Of course, he says he doesn't have a date for that truck ride...

Oh well, progress anyway. Probably have it just in time for Thanksgiving.

I'm not sure what to believe now...Another dealer in the forums was kind enough to check on my VIN. Here's what he sent me:

If I'm reading this correctly, my truck is sitting on a train car in Voltz, Kansas City MO rail yard since 10/24, waiting to be unloaded so it can wait for a truck ride home, with NO ETA of when that might happen??? Frustrating!

If I go from more than 5 weeks in JB to over a month in inspection, I might lose my mind...
Pretty sure JB is after inspection. Inspection is just looking at the manufacturing process, not the "outside" add-ons. Though it also appears that they kinda combine these 2 letter statuses.

Mine isn't even in the process yet - it was a good week+ before it got a VIN so I don't expect it before Christmas at best. Over a week to get into the system? They must have IBM PCs running 8088 chips and 128K ram and no math co-processor.

What do you have planned for it?
A little lift, tazer jl mini, 37’s, 4:88’s, recycled VIAIR OBA from my old jk, and a few small gadgets for comfort. Tiro will be mild, he may have to tow his brother around from time to time since Sprout is getting bigger shoes

Thank you for posting the pics - They give me a really good idea of how mine will look. I'm going to order the Hydro blue Rubi next month, but with the same color fenders and hardtop. I plan to use it to tow my 2016 Casita trailer (3000 lbs) when hunting and camping. Might use the Glad for my daily driver instead of my 2011 Ram 2500 Cummins - as I just find the latter so darn big if I'm not hauling weight. Great photos thanks.

So it just got off the truck. Unfortunately I’m still out of the country. So freaking excited to be able to pick it up next week. Total time from order to delivery to dealer was 3 weeks and 4 days.
