    News says shortages may delay auto production now due to lack of tires.

    There are shortages of ton’s of stuff, not just truck parts. My ex-wife was involved in a 2+ year planning process of replacing the sewer line that goes through her backyard. It was finally supposed to start last month, but has been delayed indefinitely by the unavailability of the sewage pipe, due to the freeze in Texas closing down the industry.

    Yeah I saw that news about the tire’s ,
    Lots of industries struggling now , my wife is in the steel industry , she’s having a hard time supplying material to her customers.
    Hey even the pool store is having a hard time keeping up the stock. , That plus they are having a hard time with replacing liners for pools.

    Really never heard that. There is a big Goodyear Tire plant not far from me.

    Our plant hasn’t had any issues getting raw material this year, like last year. Our issue is having enough people to work.
    If have anyone has Covid related symptoms your off work till your are symptom free for 10 to 14 days. This year is going be busiest year yet.

    I have been on calls indicating that exterior doors and appliances are in short supply due to the Freeze in Texas and a shortage of the insulation compounds that they inject into them. I am also hearing shortages of electrical boxes in some places especially the electrical ones.

    My Pella Window rep indicated that they have a piece that is used in one of their windows that comes from a plastics plant in Texas that they cannot get which has pushed out some of their window deliveries to 13 weeks.

    It seems that between Covid and the deep freeze the south had, there are still a lot of supply chain issues out there.

    Wow that would screw things up what with the chip shortage and now this. The supply line is really messed up right now.

    Yeah definitely , my wife is in the steel industry , she had ABB for a customer , definitely having a hard time getting steel for electric boxes and other supplies , it’s hard getting cold rolled steel , and then finding a place that can stamp and galvanizing is hard to find also ,
    You are right , that freak storm that hit Texas definitely has an impact on the production of certain things.

    Same reasoning.

    Well it’s coming up to Two months in a week since I’ve ordered the truck , I talked to the salesman yesterday , they still haven’t heard from the missouri plant yet for the vin number 🥲
    He also said first it could be 3 months , but yesterday , he said it could be more like 4 months , 🤷‍♂️ , hopefully it will be quicker than that 🤞

    That really sucks. I hate waiting for things, especially big purchases where I have agonized over the decision. Probably why I have never ordered a vehicle.

    That’s too bad. I wouldn’t be surprised if is longer then 4 months.

    I could be believe what saw when I drove by the local GM dealership. They had sign out front of the dealership saying that their inventory was low and they were looking to buy used vehicles. After reading the sign I the car lot had less half vehicles what they normally do.

    Could be , but thank God I’m not in desperate need right now , after the repairs to my SUV , it’s still running good
    But obviously I’m looking forward to getting it , hopefully sooner than that 🤞

    I can believe that , the Ford and GMC dealership right here , both have more used trucks on the lot than New , I think GMC have about 6 max New and Ford have about 8 New , I’ve never seen these dealerships with their parking lot empty
    Plus the GMC is a chevrolet buick gmc dealer , so they have a huge parking lot

    I guess one never knows how long it will be. I am sure you your SUV will fine until your new truck comes in.
