Re: First '14 Durango Review....sort of...

That R/T sounds mean! As it did in the walk around video from the other dealer. Definitely seems to have more bite than the 2013s I've driven. Did they change the exhaust or is this just an artifact of the mic and speakers.

Hopefully I'll get to experience this in person very soon and will report back.

You have been so supportive of your fellow Durango buyers, and so patient too ( I know, you don't have a choice). I, for one, will look forward to YOUR first impressions, and I suspect some of the pictures you post will be among the best in the bunch. Now, let's get yours built.

We will all be waiting for that report.

Thank you. It's been an interesting road but we're pretty much all (a dozen of us, at least) in this together. I have many people to thank here.

You absolutely won't see dealer quality pictures from me!

Yeah... let's get it built so I can wait some more. vertrkr, are you for hire? Might need some of your mapping and surveying skills for once this gets built and on the train! It should take the same path as Immo's R/T. And that R/T better be long gone and purring that throaty sound somewhere by the time mine gets to that rail yard!

Any chance you want to hold that train for me? I'd about fall over if the two Ds made it onto the same train/truck to the dealer.

And yes, my thanks too, for the tips/guidance and so on over the last month.

Still wondering about those 20" wheels...maybe an upgrade after the first year...

I'll be very curious to see what dates you get. I know this first batch had est delivery dates extended. My date hasn't changed from the 25th but that doesn't mean it won't. I think Milous said dates aren't modified between stages (or something to that effect).

I think I'm over the 20" wheels now. I'll just accept the fact that they look better. That's what I keep telling myself at least.

I sure hope you get yours first given that you ordered at least a month before I did.

Sure thing, but I'll I do is google the crap outta everything. My latest endeavor is finding webcams for train yards along my route. Here's a list of rail webcams:

Railroad Webcams, Railcams & Live Train Videos
