;D :o :D 8)<br>Congrats!! I am actually in the same boat as you, Mine was shipped from St Louis on 12/4/02, I am expecting it here in WI this week. Was yours built in St Louis? Maybe they shared a rail car to Belvedere - which would mean mine should be here tues or wed!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8) 8) ;D<br>Anyone feel like a cigar and some champagne? ;)

Well a little birdy told me that it is now sitting at the dealer this morning. Too bad that is 40 miles away from work so I can't go see it yet......

Congrats on your new ride. I bet your going crazy if you haven't left work yet. I just looked at your truck page. That's a nice ride! I have one that's 5 years older that I fixed up. I went a little bit different direction though --- http://www.dragtruk.com/ENTRIES/0G0R0WVYQZYL.html<br><br>I don't have the time / detail in mine that you do but it's sure fun to drive.

Ya I am still wating for a call from the deal to come and pick it up, they haven't actually told me it was in, someone else saw it. It might be that they will not have it ready to go untill tomarrow. :'(
Looked at your page, nice 8) We are doing the same thing just on different surfaces. I have actually done a bunch more mods that aren't on my site let. Went to bigger tires, put in an automatic, working on putting in lower gears now (5.86's), 4 links suspension, it is never a done project it seems. Some day the 440 will turn into a 496 also ;D
Here is a more recent picture of it:
If you got some time here are a couple new video clips of it in action. You can't tell how steep this hill really is in a video :o

Mopar, you're killin' me here...shipped "on Nov 11th" :'( I just found out that mine is on its first rail departure so I got visions of a Christmas bow on it...now not so much ???

Sorry to blow your hopes, it does suck that it takes longer to ship it then build it. You can now see why the rail system died and big trucks took over.

Well this is it, I am out of here about 2:00 to go get my truck, finally, they are doin up the paper work now. O also decided to go for the exhaust brake through Dodge so I could use the $500 credit towards it, being they decided to raise the price on it >:( I will put it on myself though, save that expence anyway.<br><br>So I might have pictures up tonight, get dark here early so I might not make it with pictures untill tomarrow.
