At times, I didn't think this day would ever come for you. I am thrilled to hear this. Can't wait to hear what you think. Come on 2:30!

Congratulations. You made Halloween like you thought you would. You can nick name the car Pumking and paint it orange in honor of the occasion. May your car be in great shape and your time with accounting short!

You are too? Another Durango road warrior. I'm enjoying running errands alot more......and all extra exercise from parking a fair distance from potential door bangers is okay until it starts snowing.

It worked for me yesterday and I am picking mine up at 5pm today.

You are almost there.
Agonzo, you are genius. I just hit refresh on MOTS, and voila, it left the railyard. Best Halloween ever. Now if I can convince my dealer to have it prepped for tomorrow, which is much better than the Monday they are telling me now.

It's only weird if it doesn't work.

Glad to hear your wait is over. Your patience will be rewarded!

Re: 2014 Durango production

Well, being the last day of the month the dealership was very busy (finance guy specifically), so I was there for almost 3 hours to take delivery. Can't really complain as the transaction itself went with no surprises, and they did get the vehicle prepped and ready to go on short notice.

At the dealer: Test drove it looked at many of the pre-checklist items, etc. Everything looks good except for possibly the hood which might need a slight alignment. (One side has a larger gap between the hood and the fender than the other side.) I will do a more thorough going-over on Saturday.

I'm at the moment sitting in the passenger seat while upgrading UConnect to 13.58.2.

The truck is gorgeous, drives and rides great (only being babied right now of course.) Unfortunately it was dark by the time I got home, and tomorrow is supposed to be really crappy weather, so pics will have to wait until likely sometime on Saturday. By then I'll have some more impressions after a couple days of driving as well. Took the wife on a quick drive back to the dealer to get the mini-van...she was impressed as well. Loves the little touches like the auto high-beams which worked extremely well, the ride, and UConnect.

That was fast...I was expecting the update to take about a half hour, but it was done in about 10 minutes.

I will say that in the brief time that I played with UConnect and my phone pairing...it was fantastic. I have a blackberry Z-10 and it looks to pretty much support everything, including dictating reply text messages. I'm stoked!

Now to try out the Blu-Ray....

Excellent news, Joey. Congrats on finally getting it in your hands, and in time for the trip west in a few weeks.

Looking forward to your impressions and pictures. Now I gotta go look at our hood alignment....brb...
