Ramp compare inventory
 
Does anyone know exactly what that means in the status phase of a built WK2?

It means you're getting close to delivery :D .

I think mine was about 12 days away when I hit that point. Congrats!

CI means it's built, but not yet shipped. I haven't been following the tracking of vehicles lately, but chances are good it will be getting shipped within a few days- it seems that the days where they'd sit for a few weeks before shipping are over.

Mine was built on 10/28 and shipped to storage. It went to "Ramp Compare Inventory" on 11/5. No word since. My dealership is promising me delivery by 11/16.

You've still got a long way to go to match what some earlier buyers were experiencing. The vehicle I ordered was built Aug. 26, immediately was shipped to storage, and didn't move a wheel again until the last week of September, at which point I had given up and found an acceptable vehicle and purchased it off the lot.

Believe me, I know the wait can be annoying, but understand that the current waits can't be as bad as they have been.

The dealer checked today and noticed it's now scheduled to ship from the factory on 11-17-10. Maybe I'll have it for Turkey Day.

So no one knows what "Ramp Compare Inventory" means.....it seems that just about every built vehicle that Milous tracks went to Ramp Compare Inventory at 5:45 AM this morning.......what is this Ramp Compare Inventory????

Re: Ramp compare inventory
 
No inside knowledge, but to me it sounds like just a routine scan of the vehicles they have at a loading ramp (almost always for railroad carriers), to verify that the vehicles that are supposed to be there ARE really there. No big deal, but it would be the logical scan to make just before new GCs are about to be loaded onto rail.

But it seems they sometimes still sit for a while before moving.

^I had similar guess as Cherodude, but saw some other Dodge Challenger threads suggesting Ramp Compare Inventory also involved a final or near final QC check.
