I drove both and noticed a considerable difference. Enough that I ordered the air ride

I am in the exact same situation as you (albeit ordering a Sport Crew 6'4, 5.7L, 8 speed, air suspension). June would be great - just in time for some road trips! Hopefully last week of February we can order, but I am not holding my breath (if anything is on restriction...)

Ya by last week of Feb order bank will open but like you said then depends on restrictions. I feel a bit safer as the Laramie has a little less chance if ristrictions specially on Air Suspension. The Sport on the other hand has been having restrictions. specially on air ride as well as wheel to wheel runners.

I'd be happy with taking delivery sometime in June.

It looks like the Hemi/8-speed will be arriving around the same time as the Diesel Ram 1500s.

I don't know why you think that, they're being built right now when they weren't expected to start building them until March 4.

My thinking was based upon the " status of my vehicle" provided by Ram last week.

D1 Delivery from Warren MI 2/11
D
C

The fall back from D1 is a significant event. It further fell to C Sub firm
So far this week we've seen 2 8 speed in progress. I'm not sure if either is 4x4. If one or both is that would provide some confidence there isn't an interfence problem with the transfercase/short shaft.
On the other hand we have one order flat canceled after 5 weeks. RAM it appears didn't even try to offer alternatives for the dealer or the customer.

One memeber said someting to the effect they'll tell us anything.

Good Luck with your order I hope it come's soon and is built to good quality standards.
