Great looking ride!~
Thanks for the vote of confidence Skytop. I spoke to my uncle about it yesterday (who owns the dealership) and he said much the same thing. I should be getting it as soon as the rebates kick in. Unfortunately it's seven hours away so I have not seen it in person, but here are some pics.

One thing, and it's little but makes me very happy, is apparently RAM has painted the FR/RR parking sensors the color of the bumper for 2014. The black dots would have really annoyed me.

I hope mine comes with 3.55 as that is what I ordered.
3.92 wasn't even a option. I asked 3 different people and they said it was 3.55, I guess we will see when it gets here and I give it a good inspection.

Interesting...mine has the 3.92's. It was certainly an option when I ordered at the beginning of the month...

I think the issue isn't whether it's an option for your truck/trim level, but whether they are building out models with that axle at the time you order. For example my truck can now only be ordered in a 3.92 axle for the next build cycle.

39k for a '14 sport? Damn, sounds like you got a damn good deal...

What options did you get, other than the hood? Did you get air ride and/or leather?

the MSRP of the '13 Sport Crew Cab is over 40 without the sport hood and no options...

Sport Hood, Alpine stereo upgrade spray in bed liner...no need for leather when you purchase the premium "cloth" it's mostly "leather" with a small cloth insert.

Said goodbye to the '13, picked up the '14 last night.

All I can say is, 3.21 vs 3.92, night and day difference in the was the truck drives.

And after driving home to work and back three times (once last night and twice today), I've found I'm so far getting better mileage with the 3.92's.
