Default Availability of 8speed hemi 2wd

Wondering if anyone has any information on when the 8 speed will be available for the 2wd hemi. I found this article about mpg for the 2wd hemi and thought maybe it was coming available.

the 8 speeds for any engine size are on almost every dealership lot

currently on the Assembly line, they may be on hold for some reason, maybe they are not in current stock. They come from the ZF factory in Germany by ship.

Remember this about the 2013 Ram, it is not just the
Body style
Engine size
8 speed transmission, you don't want or need a 6 speed
rear differential ratio, 3.21, 3.55, or 3.92
but more then ever, pick your radio carefully, if you don't like it after you buy it, they are Not interchangeable. best to get one of the 8.4 a or an radios, the other 2 radios are not worth having

the 2014 Ram truck assembly starts in July

They have not built any HEMI 8-speed in 2WD at all yet. I ordered mine on Jan 15th and still in C status. Customer servive first said on hold until April.....then last i heard was not building any till June due to " supplier parts availability" with the transmission.
Why issues with the 2wd and not the 4wd? Dunno
also heard a rumor it was because of something to do with the MPG Rating from the EPA...still mo vlear answer
