Hold the presses! An update! I just got off the phone with the dealer. He says, when he does a "build" (on the computer of course) with a 8 speed and Hemi it now allows him to build it (in other words it is not "restricted"), however, it does not give pricing. So according to him that means it can be ordered but pricing may not be firm. He said this sometimes happens with new models or during model year changes. Regarding delivery he said for sure it will be more then 8 weeks but he is not sure how much long then that.
I'm not sure if all of the OEM's operate this way but it seems as though a little "official" information from Ram would go a long way! Even the dealers are confused!
So my optimism has faded and I'm back to searching for a truck with the options I want or waiting for 2014. Damnation!
