I'm looking at the code guides which are the "bible" by which the dealer and fleet customers go by when ordering. There are internal systems that dealers and fleet buyers can use to configure and order vehicles but they are "raw" compared to the B&P tool on the site.

With that said, the same info generates the code guide and powers all the websites. The major difference is there is a bunch of steps between the generation of the information and the Ram Trucks B&P tool that can cause issues.

You may be able to work a deal out with a dealer to swap the tires as that will get you closest to your preferred config. My local dealer does that all the time.

Default Laramie Longhorn in Blue Streak Pearl

SPP - Re: Laramie Longhorn - the website shows Blue Streak Pearl as a 2 tone option, my dealer is indicating that his "codes sheet" says this won't be manufactured. Can you confirm either way?

Will take a look in the AM. Code guide rules so either b&p is early or wrong.

The 9/9 code guide doesn't show it. I'll ping the Ram guys and let them know.

SPP

If you have the code guides, can you tell me if the GVWR on the 6.4L 2500 is 10,000lbs or 9,000lbs? Rambodybuilders site says 10,000 for the 6.4L but the ramtrucks build site says its 9,000. Not having any luck with my local dealer so far.

Code guide is of no help on that particular one, sorry. The 5.7 is definitely 9900. The Cummins is definitely 10,000. The 6.4L is absent. I'll ping the Ram folks (yet again).

Interesting. Builders guide and ramtrucks build site both show 5.7 at 9,000 (and 6.4L), not 9900.

Thanks for looking into it.
