I forgot to mention that I believe my order was manually edited by a Supply Chain Manager.

I asked my dealer to follow this investigation, told him I would order right away if he could find out if this was true about stopping orders on air suspension/Limited.

His response:

"As of today* the factory is stopping the air ride system availability , it seems it has some bugs in it and can't seem to resole them . sorry ."

Not sure what to believe anymore. He/that dealer could be incompetent or not care, but he does know he lost a potential high value sale.

Have you tried contacting a different dealer yet to see if this is true? I have not heard that one yet, but anything is possible.

from what i have read
in 20 days, you can place your order for the 2014 Ram
production starts about July 17th
at the dealership around the 4th week of September ??

I also read that the 3.0 Diesel won't be in production until October 2013
you would be lucky to be able drive one before January 2014

Just got off the phone with my local dealer (different than the email I reported earlier).....but caveat: I will not buy from them (multiple reasons). The sales woman looked into a build (simple: Limited/Air Suspension) and said there weren't any restrictions that were being flagged on her computer. I told her what my other dealer sent me in an email and her response was that dealers have restrictions/allocations on the number of configurations they are allowed to order. That dealer may have hit their limit

That's about it

Default Placed my order

Placed my order for a black limited with 6'4" box today. Was 'guaranteed' air suspension was standard equipment. My salesman did note that the longhorn parts were on allocation, but the limited package [26M] was not, so that helped....[take it for what it's worth...]

basically a laramie longhorn with:
26M limited package
anti-slip differential
Class IV receiver

MSRP: $52,930
Sale Price: $46,568

Potential Rebates/Incentives [some protected, some not]: $6,618

Final pricing before tax/title/etc: $39,950 [TBD at time of delivery...]

Hope this info help others on the board, I certainly got a lot of info from others here...

Nice work gombater! You work with Ken? What was the MSRP price of the 26M package? If it was only listed as $2495 then it did not contain the Air Suspension.

Once I the Midwest Supply Chain Manager added Air suspension my MSRP went up to 54,175. I got 26M, Power Sun Roof, CD Player, 3.55 Gears, Class IV Hitch, Delete Rambox, Delete Spray in Bedliner.

Yep, working with Ken. Very Professional guy. The 26M package was quoted at $2495 and the air suspension was not listed. Ken was told [or I was told] that we have 100% confirmation that air suspension is standard for this trim level. In the next sentence though, he reminded me that Ram is allowed to adjust pricing from now to delivery - until the 'papers are signed' So I may get a notice of price increase or get a truck without it. So honestly I am not sure if I'll get it or not. Dealer will let me walk away from deal of course since they cannot order limited trim packages and they could easily sell this unit off the lot [probably for a lot more].

On top of all this I ordered Friday afternoon, Thursday afternoon there were no restrictions, Friday morning there now is one on the base longhorn truck. So now I am not sure if I'll even get the truck, or if it will be delayed and how much. If it goes too long, I may cancel and order a 2014 model.

I spent six hours between two dealers last Thursday and Friday. Both did their best to order me a truck, but they could not. Literally, could not because the system would not let them. I was sitting right there with the guys who order vehicles for both dealers day in and day out (that's their only job). What a PITA. I have NEVER ran into this sort of problem before. That's why people "order" vehicles, to get what they want without having to compromise. I even tried to order a Longhorn (minus the stitching), with the 6/4 bed, 8 speed and air suspension. No luck with that combo either, and I didn't even get to the color choice! I guess I'm getting a Ford Platinum after all, well if I can find one with the 6.2 and 6/4 bed anyway. I have had a hard time finding that combination too.... This is ridiculous. Can't ever remember having trouble buying something before.

I have a Longhorn on order but prefer less cowboy of the Limited. My dealer has told me the only interior available for the limited is black? Is this true? Thanks.
