OK, this is now getting into the stupid phase... This week I am starting into the 5th month of my wait for a scheduled production date for my 2022 DDSRT. I have contacted my dealer, SRT customer support, and Dodge Cares. The response from everyone has been yep you are still in "D" waiting for your DD to be scheduled for production. At this point, I think it is the continued parts shortages that are keeping my DD from getting built. If I get kicked into the 23 model year I will consider canceling my order.

I had heard that Durango production will be moving away from JNAP to another plant where the Jeep Wagoneers are being built. I understand the D is shifting to be able to share the JW platform for '23.

I think a good number of owners here went thru this early on.
Just have to wait it out. Have you tried checking dealer inventory to see if anything is available that has the options you're looking for?

Actually, it will be the 24 Model year for the DD, The current platform will be built at JNAP through the first two quarters of 2023. Production will then shift to MACK Assembly where the new Jeeps are being built. After the two months shut down in March production of the WK Jeep Grand Cherokee ended at JNAP.

I really want what I want LOL... That is why we placed a factory order. I just don't understand the 5 month wait and still no scheduled production date???

It must be something they are short of so you do not see anything you want on lot yet.
I know a person who just picked up his DD (not sure TNG or SRT) last week and the order was placed back in Dec 2021.

Modern times.

When My dad ordered his '69 Town and Country (a couple weeks before announcement), the dealer put in the order on an actual Teletype.

And the next day the dealer got a message on that same teletype saying that one item on the order (I forget what it was) would delay the order two months.

Would be nice to have that level of information with the amazing systems we have 50 years later /s

Ahhhhh... the ozone and oil smell of an ASR-33 Teletype. Brings back memories.

boomers, in my day we had the TI-99/C64.


When the HC was built (a priority build, probably one of the first on the line). It sat forever. (also covered in winter salt/oxidation, as a floridian and ex-IL - made me cringe. 🤣 )

Got our new DD RT+ pretty much on the schedule our dealer told us in March, assembled on a Tuesday mid June, delivered to the dealer around July 7th, really like the 8 speed tranny, adaptive cruise is handy going thru highway construction zones, skipping the steering wheel jerk too near white lines for now, no OEM splash guards, but found some made for the vehicle on ‘ZL1 addons’.

Another boomer memory: At least you didn't have signs of Acid Rain on it. :unsure:

I feel your pain brother... ordered the first vehicle in early February, arrived mid March. One tiny problem, it was an RT and we ordered an RT Plus. No big deal, reordered March 17, picked it up yesterday. Took the long way home and couldn't stop smiling the whole time.
