Now hold on a minute mfif, I ain't talking about going out and buying nary nother truck, but, I'm sure a lot of people have if Ram is making it this hard for us to part with our lucres.

So, I've decided to go ahead and order a '13 today. Not an easy decision, not sure I wouldn't be better off in the long run to wait. But, I've already sold my '08 Megacab CTD, and this is the first time in 32 years I have gone one day without owning a full size 4x4 pickup truck, and I don't like it!

So, what the heck I guess... Going to place the order this afternoon for a fully loaded 2013 Longhorn CC/6'4".

Did they give you a final price?

My dealer said the price could change depending on rebates available. If I order something and put a deposit, I want to know what my final price will be.

I'm getting price protection so it can't go up, but if rebates improve my price will go down. Looking at about $9K below MSRP. Not the greatest deal I ever made on a new truck, but not terrible, considering they are literally selling them as fast as they can make them.

Just ordered mine. I got the price for delivery signed by the GSM. I got about the same deal $10 off (difference is probably the 1k trade in).

Ordered a Lone Star CC 6'4", 4x4, 3.92, 8-speed, Air Suspension, Sun Roof, etc.

the big question is do you think I can get close to the 9-10k off 2014 that I can get off a 2013 right now if I wait a month and order a 2014?

I'm sure you probably can. That is just an "okay" deal, I've done lots better on trucks from inventory in the past. To me, the big question isn't that at all. The big question is will you really be able to order a '14 in a month?

I placed my bet on no, we won't be able to order a '14 in a month. If it turns out I'm wrong, I'll probably wish I'd have waited and got the '14. Too late now though, my '13 has been ordered.

Dealer seemed to be pretty honest about how long I should expect to wait. He said that he's finally starting to see orders move from D1 in a reasonable amount of time, so MAYBE I'll see mine in 8-10 weeks, but said the way things have been going this year, probably safer to expect 12 weeks.

Ok. What about ordering, should I expect to do better or worse than an in stock car?

From my experience, you won't do as well ordering a truck as you would with buying an in stock truck. But, you can still get a heck of a deal, if you shop around. If you are going to order a truck, it's much easier to compare the deals competing dealers are willing to make, being that you will be comparing apples to apples.

I doubt on a '14. Probably 4-5k. I had about 5k in rebates, that apply to 2013s.
