I ordered mine yesterday and thought it would make an appropriate first post. I've always wanted a truck but couldn't justify it due to my long commute, but the mileage of the EcoDiesel has put owning one in reach.

DS6H98 - 1500 SLT CREW CAB 4X4 w'5' 7" box
28T - Outdoorsman Package
EXF - 3.0L EcoDiesel Engine
DFD - 8 Spd. Auto 8HP70 Trans
PAU - Granite Crystal Met. Clear Coat
APA - Monotone Paint
MJ - Premium Cloth Bucket Seats
X8 - Black/Diesel Gray
XAC - ParkView Rear Back-up Camera
SER - Air Suspension 4-Corner
GWA - Power Sun Roof
RC3 - 9 Amplified Speakers w/Subwoofer
WHE - 20X8 Aluminum Wheels
GFA - Rear Window Defroster
XMF - Spray in Bedliner

They are talking 2 weeks until VIN and 6-8 weeks delivery. The plant where it'll be built is about 20 minutes form my house, I wonder if they'll let me drop by and watch?

The pic below shows the monotone paint scheme on the Outdoorsman and the 20" aluminum wheels. Of course mine won't have a Hemi emblem.

welcome aboard Tom and congrats on the order! Are you completely sold on the air suspension? I have to say I've read some not so glorious things about them from the Jeep community (RAM system is about as close to identical as you can get) and a rew as well from HEMI RAM guys.

If its a comfort thing the stock coils should give you a comparatively smooth ride, nothing like the live axle rear shim sham they used to do a couple years back :D
Good looking truck you got there Tom! Congrats and happy birth day :p! Those are 20's you ot there correct? How did you manage that, I've tried to build an SLT and it always locks me into the 17's???
