I too ordered the Sport HEMI 8-speed....not with any crazy options that are on erstriction that I know of.
It could be that your dealer doesn't have allocation... I know when I ordered my truck, in Jan, they said nothing until Feb because they had already used their January allocation. It didn't bother me because 2013 Ram 3500 production doesn't start till 2/25....

I ordered mine on jan 12 and just got my first email. Today was the first day I could see anything in vots. I ordered the same as you guys. Hemi with 8-speed. As for the zf version, I like the idea of it coming from a mature plant rather than first run at a new plant.

I ordered on 2/5 and got the tracker email with the VIN yesterday (2/7).
I guess I will save it to my phone and hit refresh about 20 times a day now...lol. That should help the production at work...

Mine is 1500 Sport Crew Cab 4x4, Hemi and 8 speed...

I called Ram Customer Service and they explained that my ordered color of Black Gold Pearl with the Rambox option was not scheduled to be built until 3/4. Oh well, maybe I should have chosen a different color. I'll have to be patient. I don't know what the time period is for delivery after building.

The Rambox with Black Gold Pearl starts on 2/18 so it's not the problem. The 8 spd tranny has the 3/4 date. That is the first date of production so depending on where your truck falls in sequence, it could be some time after that date. There is no possible way to get it built any sooner as they are not producing any 8 spd trucks until that date.

Did you ask the dealer if you had a VIN assigned yet? I certainly wouldn't go by the VOTS.

I ordered my truck on 2/4 and I received an email from Ram on 2/7 saying it was scheduled for production. I ordered a Laramie crew cab 4x4 in Maximum Steel with the 8 speed, air suspension, ram box, etc....I can't wait!

I have read in this thread and others that the Hemi 8 speeds are not starting production until 3/4/13. Has this been confirmed with Ram, or is this info from the Donlen website? Has Donlen (whoever that is) been deemed to be reliable?

There are multiple sources, including the dealer, and they all say 3/4. If your's is scheduled for production, then the dealer can tell you when it wil be built. That means that all the parts needed are lined up and the sequencing set. So they can tell you with a very large degree of accuracy when it will be built. Even the expected ship and arrival dates. The dealer has all of this detailed info, not VOTS.

I got told by a dealer today that their "factory rep" said I couldn't order a v8 with an 8 speed.

I called Ram customer service and they said "sure you can, building them right now"

I hate dealing with dealers....

I only have a VON presently and no VIN. I was told that I will only get the VIN once the truck is scheduled to be built.

Sounds like the dealer didn't have allocation for your truck. They do have all of the info on what is going on, you just need to talk to the right person at the dealership.
