Default Tough to order a regular cab w/8ft. bed

I,m just frustrated...Trying to trade in my 03 slt 4x4 on a 2013 slt reg cab 8ft bed 4x4...
Two dealerships now and they both are telling me that the options are so limited...One told me I couldn,t even get fog lights...The other told me you can,t get a 8ft bed SLT...What the heck?
I just visited the canadian ram truck site and if I could oder from it I,m be sittin pretty in my new truck in a couple months !!

hmm.... I have not heard of either one of those before, I would think you would be able to order a truck however you wanted...

This is one of those years that will have a switch over, like back in 2002

There will be 2013 Rams that started being built in September 2012
Then there will be 2013 Rams that started being built in January 2013
they will be called 2013 1/2 models, or 2013.5 models
They still don't have all the Options on hand, like
HEMI w/ 8 speed, available in March
the 3 bed sizes
certain paint colors
etc.

Chrysler Officially announced yesterday that the 1500 Ram Diesel will be out in 2014

They are on a roll !!

Default I hope so

Although I,m not really in a hurry, I was real dissapointed with the run around the 2 dealerships here put me through...But it looks like I have found the place to get answers and see what,s going on.

The boards are a great place to find answers for almost any RAM questions you can think of

Thanks

It could be your dealer sells more than Ram and doesn't know the 1500. I was talking to my sales guy at the dealer and he said they have a very cursory understanding of the features of a 2013 1500. They were going to "ask Ram" to initialize a RA4 Uconnect to actually work with some of the features. I got the feeling they are going to want to ask me about my truck when it comes in...it scares me a little to know that I may know more via this forum and internet research then they do. I hope I'm wrong.

That is pretty much the case with the majority of Chrysler dealers. you do find some sales people who do there own research and frequent fourms and who put an effort to contact their RAM reps to be educated on the 2013 RAM's.

I see I will need to educate myself and unfortunately tutor the sales people if I have any hope of getting my vehicle of choice...I was so discouraged I even shopped the competitors..But honestly that just fueled my resolve to get answers about RAM...I now know what I want in a dodge truck is available, I just need to motivate the sales people !!

Default Thx

Thx all....
It is amazing the response you get when you tell a sales manager that there sales staff is misinformed and lacking the motivation to please a loyal costumer....
I,m lucky enough to live in a area with many dealerships within a reasonable drive...
I,m far from through with this adventure but things are looking up !!
Dave
