Default Can you get a 8 speed in a 1500 2wd hemi?

I have a rcsb 2/wd hemi on order with a 6 speed trans but now I'm thinking I should wait for the 8 speed if possible.whats your thoughts?

Yes and No. the hemi 8-speed 4x2 is on restriction till begining of April. You would have to wait till then to make or change your order.

Sorry just noticed your trim as Express so that means the answer is NO.

Is there something from Ram Truck that says 4x2 Hemi with 8speed will not be built until April or is that just talk.Have order since 1-17 with serial number not built.If that is true why not wait for 2014 trucks.

I have a buddy who is with Ram engineering and he just informed me that the 4X2 Hemi eight speeds will not be built until the beginning of the 2nd quarter, which is April. I also have a 4X2 on order from when the order banks opened up in January, so I just changed to a 4X4 i cannot wait that long.

Yea i also ordered on jan 15th a 4x2 Sport and when i asked customer service about the delay they said the 4x2 8-speed is "on build restriction until 04/01/2013 due to supplier materials availability"
I too am going to try to change it to 4x4

I wonder why the Canadian Ram Trucks website shows the Express model with the Hemi/8-speed option, but the American website doesn't.

I think I'm going to wait for the 8 speed.I looked up the gear ratios in the 2 trans and man what a difference.
6 speed has a 300 first gear
8 speed has a 4.72 first gear
