They only thing that I can think of is
A) 4x4s are more popular so they have been using all the 8 speeds with them AND the 2014 Grand Cherokees
B) They are having issues with the tailshaft on the 8 speed. This seems unlikely but you just never know

I ordered a 2013 Ram Crew cab sport 4x2 with hemi/8speed/air suspension/rambox on 5-20-13 and it's in final inspection right now.

I received an email from VOTS once a week every monday since the day I ordered. This week starting monday the 10th, it was paint, tuesday was trim, today it's final inspection. I bet it gets here the last week of June.

There is a weekly update email from Ram that goes out to the dealers that list the changes in production. Back when I ordered my truck, it said they would start building hemi/8speeds on June 3rd. Sure enough, they did, and now they are rolling out like coins from a slot machine.

When I was shopping for my 2013 the dealer said that as far as hemis were concerned 4x4s were getting the 8 speeds first, and he didn't know how long it would be before the 8 speed 4x2s became available.
