Glad to see there are a few chuckles because of this thread! I ended up finding my answer on a thread here called "Born on Date" post #15 I needed to look at my door jamb sticker for "MDH." Mine was 041817 or April 18th at 5pm and it was hecho en Mexico, no bueno...LOL!!

In Mexico they build the regular cab Ram as well as the 2500, 3500, 4500, & 5500 models
All the rest of the Ram 1500s are assembled in Michigan

I sent an email a while back to Chrysler and asked them how long does it take to Build a 2012 Ram 1500 from start to Finish. This is the answer they replied to my email with.


Dear Mr. ***********: or Al

Thank you for your email of May 15, 2012.

We cannot provide model specific information on how long it takes to produce a vehicle in our Factory, but I can tell you that at our Michigan Auto Plant, it takes approximately two shifts or approximately 16 hours to produce a vehicle. Ultimately not only one Vehicle is being produced during that same time frame. This is from the start of welding through the paint process (which includes curing time) and through assembly of the vehicle into a finished product. Unfortunately, I cannot specify how long it takes to produce the 2012 Ram 1500 Truck. Though production of Trucks involves a few extra or different processes than a car, the production time would be similar for all vehicles.

I too would love to see that, they should add a DVD in the truck of the whole process when you buy one.
