Wow, my car is at the dealer already! Only one month and five days from when I called and ordered it.
What a difference from the Challenger waiting game.

I got the trailer ready, but need to do an oil change on the tow vehicle and install better headlight bulbs.

Those bulbs were supposedly shipped today, and then it's a matter of weather, minimizing the driving in salt. Or worse, magnesium chloride. I'll be looking at the 10-day and pick the least worst day.

Of course, first it would be nice to find out that the car arrived intact.

Where do you have to go to get it? I can help you find a travel window...

Thanks, Eric, I thought about that but didn't want to bug you. It's in Richfield, UT, so going through Moab.

I may have to make this a 2-day trip, by the way, as we'll try to add the sales code for HID headlights to the 3500 while at the only dealership I trust.
And it always takes me "forever" to tie down an unknown vehicle properly. I'm bringing two sets of wheel nets, plus lasso straps. Something will work.

Anyway, if you could arrange for two days sometime next week, that would be much appreciated.

Jimmy, man...the pattern looks to stay quite active with a storm coming through the Rockies just about every other day through the end of next week! Weaker systems Sunday morning and Monday afternoon, perhaps a stronger on Tuesday/Wednesday morning followed by something weaker on Thursday. Could be another one digging in for next weekend too!

Thanks, Eric! I'm just going to have to hope for the best...or take yet another trip without functional headlights, in which case I could leave Friday.

What I'm hoping to avoid is having to hose magnesium chloride off both the 3500 and trailer, as seen in this photo from after having picked up a pickup in Richfield two years ago. DSCN1847.JPG .

LOL - you do not mess around do you?

We do expect snow Friday, but mainly for the first half of the day. Shouldn't be to heavy, only a couple inches possible for the most part. Sunday's little wave coming through looks to be much weaker than Friday's.

On the trip for the pickup, it was miserable going there, especially through and north of Durango. By the time I got there the road crews had woke up and done their thing. On the return it was all dry, so the new pickup stayed clean.

This time I'm going through Shiprock instead, hoping to avoid any potential mess that way.

Anyway, you guys may freak out over all the bugs on the visible side of my 'Cat, but I do my best to keep under carriages clean, on everything. Even the '17 3500 which has never been washed...except underneath.

Thanks. It's supposedly very close to DGatzby's red Challenger, called Velvet Red on Jeeps.

I just ordered splash guards, front and rear for the car, plus installation at a Dodge dealer I like.

I have not yet ordered, to quote a friend in the military from way back (He was British) 'quadruple inline Rolls-Royce Merlins" as a modification of my car.

Almost forgot to post it here: Went and got my little red wagon the other day.
Now it's only a painful 496 miles to go before I can enjoy it to its fullest. DSCN3086[1].JPG
