I was really curious about your actual experience of taking delivery of the truck. Mine is due in in 2 days. I have a checklist a mile long. I should be excited, but am a bit apprehensive.

In the short time you have owned the truck, have you found anything that you missed in your initial inspection at the time of purchase? Did you purchase an extended warranty? I'm just looking for last minute ideas on the truck, finances, warranty, or anything else that may be important. Thanks.

Got almost 300 miles on the truck now. Absolutely no complaints. Simply love the truck. Its at the Line-x shop this morning getting a spray in bedliner and had the front windows tinted on Saturday morning. They guy who did the tinting must have told me 10 times how awesome my truck is.

The delivery process was super easy for me and I was out the door in less than an hour. I told my salesman the exact dollar amount I wanted to finance so all that paper work was ready to go.
  1. I visually went over the paint and it looked great. I was able to confirm the paint quality this weekend while hand washing the truck.
  2. I raised the Air Suspension to Off Road 2 and quickly crawled under the truck to verify the axle ratio.
  3. I sent the salesman on his way and sat in the parking lot and went through and validated Uconnect had the latest SW version and most of the interior options. I did not need a lengthy overview of the truck or controls as I have pretty much read the entire RAM and Unconnect owner manuals a couple months ago.
I did not purchase the extended warranty yet. You have a full year to decide, however if you want to roll it into the cost of the truck you have to decide at the time of signing. I am still debating. I have a quote for $2185 with a $100 deductible.

Very nice, is this the one you're considering getting?

The truck is beautiful but I can't say I am a fan of the black dots in the bumper (rear parking sensors). That's inexcusable on a 50k vehicle. I wonder if they'd paint mine for me? My truck will likely have those guys on the front and back bumpers unless they started painting them for 2014.

Thank you and repped!

Agree on the sensors. The sensors on my wifes lexus are painted, front and back. When we had it in the colision shop (idiot slow speed re-ended my wifes car) they said that the painter has to know what they are doing, if improperly applied the paint will cause the sensor to give false readings.

This is just the closest Limited to me but I am a few months out from purchasing. My local dealer has a few on order that are about 6 wks out. I have a house for sale in Dallas that I need to get off my hands before making a new big purchase. Anyone need a house down in Texas?

Thanks for the additional info. It's very helpful. I really hope my experience goes as smoothly as yours. I soooo wish I was more familiar/comfortable with UConnect. I'd like to verify the most current updates and functioning, but the learning curve may be too slow for me to do so prior to driving it off the lot.

Is the extended warranty you are considering sold via your dealer or through Chrysler via internet? Is that the lifetime warranty?

Dont own the truck yet, this is an Illinios delaer, was the closest who has a Limited on the lot. All I know is that I have been less than impressed by my Local Madison Ram dealer, sales staff is a bunch of slackers who feel it is too much trouble to even talk to you.

The lastest SW version is 13.19.0. It easy to find and check.

The warranty I am considering is sold via the dealer, but they are selling the Mopar extended Warranty. The warrant package is lifetime\unlimited, however I believe its not transferable.

Thanks for the UConnect update version. I'll look for that.

That warranty price from your dealer is good. That's the same price for the same warranty offered by "ChryslerFactoryPlans.com". Not sure my dealer will match that price, but I'm willing to get it online if not (no sales tax for the online plan, while some states charge tax - not sure mine does or not). Thanks again.

Thanks for that extended warranty info. I'm for sure going the lifetime route, USAA offered a 72 month 100,000 mile extended warranty for about $1300. I'll fork over the extra $800 for a lifetime of coverage. That should make the wife happy..
Now it's just finding the right truck
