If this was available now it would be at the top of my shopping list. Sigh...
I don't think that it is too far off. It wasn't too long after the same type of teaser news release for the XD that it became available. Maybe 3 or 4 months at most, if I recall correctly.
This is starting to look more like my choice too, but in a King Cab version.
Still hoping for a return of the Console shifter as my preference.
