I opted for the Montana title when purchasing the M1123 a year ago. I still have not received it. Customer support says it is still in the works. Is this common? Have other people had the same delay?

I got the title also and first one Montana messed up on and put off-road. I had to send it back and wait for replacement. Took almost a year from date of purchase. I found out that in Nevada there is zero advantage of getting the title and my new truck I just got the SF97

I bought the Montana title as well with my purchase. Hoping it doesn't take that long after paying $200 for that option. I work for a company based out of Montana and I'm remote. So, if this title gets mixed up, maybe next time I'm up to visit the home office I can run in to the DMV and ask some questions.
Without title, this 1097R1 becomes a bit over kill for driving up to the neighborhood pool. Gonna make all the golf cart drivers very nervous.

Thanks for all the responses. Looks like I'm not the only one waiting over a year. I'll keep plugging away at the little things the truck needs (doors, hardtop, etc). Patience....

Mine "only" took about 8 months before getting the Montana title. Texas dragged their ass another 3+ months (after my appointment) to finally issue my Texas title.

For what it's worth, I got to a point where I was driving the truck while still waiting on the title/registration. While it's certainly illegal, it's not a crazy expensive ticket or anything. I made it a point to carry all the sales info showing the purchase from govplanet and I also kept a copy of my appointment at the DMV to get my title (along with a completed title application). Our title offices still don't allow walk-ins post covid, so you have to make an appointment. I kept making/cancelling appointments while waiting for the title so that I'd have a slot once the title came in. If I had gotten pulled over prior to getting registered, I had a bill of sale and proof of a DMV appointment for the title. A cop might still have given me a ticket for no registration, but I figured they would probably give me a pass and worst case I just pay the ticket. I had the truck insured and I confirmed that it was covered (including liability) without registration or title (that was my bigger concern).

I had my truck registered as a "former military vehicle", so no inspection is required and I elected not to get license plates (the military markings are my license number for registration). The hmmwv isn't a daily driver for me, otherwise I would have registered it normally. It's a bit of an experiment to see if I'll be a target for getting pulled over (I figure it's confusing for a cop to see a vehicle on the road with no plates or registration sticker). I've only put a little over a thousand miles on it around town, but have gotten nothing but waves and smiles from the cops so far. If I have any issues with this type of registration, it's a simple switch to register it as a "normal" truck (I'll just need to get it inspected every year and it will require license plates).
