A little more... hoopla..
Wiling away the time...cruising different forums, looking for 'scraps' on the 2011. From the KTP.."behind the inpenetrable chain link barricades" comes...
We started building the 2011 units in Body yesterday afternoon. The first units were shipped from Body to the Paint Shop at about 11:30 or so last night. The plan was to balance out the current production during afternoon shift today, put a gap in the line to swap out stock to new model,and then fill up the lines with 2011 units. I would think it will be fairly late in the shift tonight on the current model balance out. The plan for the rest of the week will include total system fill, and they are going to run 50 units off the chassis line on Friday. These will be sellable units, not PP (pre-production) units. I have had a chance to play around with the 6.7 Liter Scorpions a little bit around the plant property and these things are bad *** !! Quick pedal response, they don't have the turbo lag at launch,very smooth and quiet at idle. They will light the tires up in manual tranny mode through first and second and probably third if you hit the buttons right. The fence was coming at me a little too quickly to get too brave. Guys I work with that have driven the units for evaluation are telling me the dually models are getting mileage in the low 20s right out of the gate with them running them hard. They have some really nice seat and interior packages.
