Looks like the Lariat has a fixed ambient lighting. Ultimate not required.Dumb question, Does the Lariat Ultimate package get ambient lighting? I just looked at a buddies KR window sticker and it states that option on the sticker. Apparently I’m not smart enough to find it on the Build Sheets. I really like that feature on my current truck. Hope I didn’t loose that too.
Shipping our trucks once they are built isn’t anywhere near like Amazon Prime. They sit at the Kentucky plant in rail cars until four AutoRack rail cars worth of trucks is going to your destination. Then those rail cars are hooked up to a train that hauls them north to meet autorack rail cars with cars and trucks from the northern auto plants.My dealer says mine is already in Chicago. Should not be long I wouldn’t think ?
So I assume the ramp number is at the top of the window sticker? In my case it says convoy but the top says ramp W. Or is it the ramp number at the bottom CM6P.Shipping our trucks once they are built isn’t anywhere near like Amazon Prime. They sit at the Kentucky plant in rail cars until four AutoRack rail cars worth of trucks is going to your destination. Then those rail cars are hooked up to a train that hauls them north to meet autorack rail cars with cars and trucks from the northern auto plants.
Then that train winds around the county heading to the final rails yard 1-4 hours from your dealer.
Then they are unloaded and according to my dealer can sit in an open lots for several weeks until there are enough to warrant car carriers to haul them up to the dealer.
My rail depot lot is 2-1/2 hours from my house. My dealer says they can’t go down and pickup my truck up and I can’t take my flatbed trailer down to get it either.
It just sits until enough cars need to go to the dealer. I’m 11 hours from Kentucky Plant. Dealer says 10 days to 3-1/2 weeks is what they are seeing to SuoerDuty ship times.
Basically depends on how many trucks are already at an intermediate location.
If your truck rolls off the line and is the last truck to fill a 4 Rail car autorack to your rail destination, you leave quick. Once you get to the rail destination and your the truck that triggers enough to car haul to dealer then you can get shipped in 7-10 days.
If your the first truck in the rail cars and the first batch to arrive at final rail destination your in for a long wait.
If you have a ramp number you’re going by rail even if it says convoy.
