I called my dealership yesterday and got terrible news. I ordered my truck on Jan 14, 2013 and it is still in C status.

2013 Ram Sport 4x4 (Hemi) - 8 speed
- air ride suspension
- 3.92 axle ratio
- Nav, leather etc..
- Spary in bedliner
- wheel to wheel side step
(almost every option)

What I was told is that there is a problem with them being able to get the air ride suspension from the manufacturer (they are short). Has anyone else heard this? Is there anyone who has an 8 speed with the Hemi with the air ride suspension?

This has been posted in a few threads already.

The air ride is on restriction specifiaclly for all trims except the Laramie and Longhorn. Those are the two trims that the restriction isn't really applied too. Though even those trims may encounter the restriction but is very slim on that happening.

I have a Longhorn on order since Jan. 17th (from a Canadian dealer) and was told the same thing at the beginning of the week, delayed because of air bags supply.

I called my dealership and they said it has been assigned a VIN# but that is all they seem to want to tell me. If a VIN# has been assigned what stage would this be?

I have the 8-speed Hemi. I don't have the air suspension.

Woohooo !!! Dunno why this is so exciting but it sure as hell is!

The girl I spoke to was very cool .... unable to assign a case number due to the newness of the VIN / status but should be able to next week.

I've got a build date now !!! Seems like an odd date (Sunday?) but that's what the girl said. March 10th .....

That's a bit of a drive! Is your truck a 1500 or a 2500/3500 ?
