19 for the U.S. market. I'm told that production levels will start increasing very soon.

Re: FIRST JG member to have their WK2 SRT8 built - Congrats to:

does anyone happen to know if there is any rhyme or reason to when trucks are produced? Does this particular truck have an early ordered date? or special production code? just trying to figure out how long before mine moves closer to production.

Re: FIRST JG member to have their WK2 SRT8 built - Congrats to:

Hey Milous, question, are they just throwing Wk2 SRT's on the line in any way shape or form? Or are they building to fill orders FIRST, and then building general units for dealer allocation (non-orders). It would only make sense to me that they fill orders first so the customer gets exactly what they ordered, right?

Thanks again buddy

"Sold" orders typically have a build priority over dealer stock orders, but it's not always the case. You'll probably see some on Ebay during the time people who ordered are still waiting. But that doesn't necessarily mean a dealer order was built "first" as it could have been a cancelled order. If history repeats itself, and it will, you'll find people with early orders getting them before those who ordered later, as well as people who ordered them later getting them ahead of those who ordered earlier.
