I would lean on the dealer to sell it at the same price. Wasn't your problem.

Normally, no. But end of production, very possibly. It was likely kicked out of the system that sets up incoming components and schedules assembly based on available items. This would have created some error code, and then a human would have to try to rationalize different parts into a workable solution. I used to order GM vehicles on the employee plan, and acknowledgement was about two weeks under normal circumstances. Busy humans trying to sort out dozens of last-minute orders could very well require another week.

What are you actually looking for? You say SLT in signature but that is not a Chevy package. There is a lot of 3500 diesels sitting on the dealer lots around here in many configurations, long bed, short bed, regular cab, crew cab, different trim levels and so on. There are 9 on lots within 25 miles from me. Have you looked at GMC's? Basically same truck just a little different look.

You caught me in a mistype. I am looking for an LTZ Diesel with NO CLEARANCE LIGHTS and no snowplow prep. I want heated and cooled seats, 5th wheel package, spray on bed liner and I really want it to be of the tungsten metallic color. I have been searching all the states surrounding me and I'm not finding one

You poked my curiosity by "shouting" NO CLEARANCE LIGHTS. It seems that this is the only feature that you are adimate about. Just curious as to why no clearance lights?

I personally think that they are hideous looking. They are required by law if you are a USDOT licensed vehicle towing, but I am a private citizen towing only my RV. Plus I have heard of a few people having leaking problems with them.

Guess the old adage "order early" has been reinforced here. Is this really the hill you want to die on? It's a truck, just taking you down the road. We all have to settle on things at some time, to me, this would not be the hill I want to die on. I'd rather move on and fight another day when some really important issue comes up. JMHO.

You looking for crew cab or regular, single or dual wheel?

I debated taking one off the lot or ordering last month. My dealer, who I know well, cautioned me that the cutoff for ordering would be about May 20. Me thinks your dealer may be blaming their lack of knowledge on the faceless corporate guys. On another note, finding a 2016 with the 5th wheel prep is really tough if not impossible.

A 2017 is in my future, ugly hood scoop & all
