its my understanding china has us by the balls on this one. Im all for bringing manufacturing back to the US...but its my understanding the rare earth metals/rocks/whatever the hell they use in the microchips and those things currently under shortage are found primarily on Chinese soil. So even if we made it in the US...wed need supplies from them so itd be the same thing with extra steps 🤔

The date already says July on it. I really doubt itll be ready in 2 months if its not already on someones boat.

Saw this while I searched for the last video I posted. Then started thinking back...im pretty sure when this thread started it said May, almost 100% sure. Now its saying July. Theyre in pushback mode and letting the vendors like RMP deal with the headache of needing to send out videos like this one to preorder people

RMP got ripped for taking peoples money on preorders also when they keep getting pushed back. There having huge supply issues. Chrysler bought all the 12” glass for use in there vehicles so that’s why we haven’t seen many Helix 12 as it’s the same glass they use.

Bummer because I hear RMP is awesome. I really wonder how much profit they are making on each unit to begin with. I hear the amounts arent that great...and I figure the installs and accessories is where they make more of their money....lots of assuming in that tho! LOL Hopefully its enough to make dealing with this headache worth it.
