Just ordered a 2018, now what?

Hey Guys,
Can anyone familiar with the ordering process fill me in? Is there some sort of tracking or anything else I can do while I'm waiting?

To use that site you'll need:
1. An order # &
2. Dealer code
or
3. A VIN
.
That site from my experience is about 3 days behind what your dealer can get for a status.
.

Since you asked. You may want to go over what you think you ordered and see if there is anything you forgot or may have overlooked. I've read several cases where buyers took delivery and didn't get what they thought they ordered.

I think I've went over the order around 200 times in 2 days, It's exactly what I want

Magnetic is cool. My current truck is Blue Flame, figured my next truck would be Lighting Blue but, I saw the Magma, WOW! Now I am conflicted, LOL.

Out of interest how long do you expect to have to wait for an order like that?
