That may be for regular cab and 2WD trucks, which they currently are not making.

Yeah, I have driven them too, but try ordering one. You have not been able to order a RAM 1500 with an 8 speed transmission for over a month now.

I test drove, negotiated etc. last week on a '13. They were able to order me one with everything I wanted (last Thursday). Specifically, a CC/6'4"/4x4/Hemi/8 speed, Longhorn with 3.92's and every option except air suspension and rear seat DVD player (sun roof, Ram box, anti-spin, convenience, protection, wheel-to-wheel side steps, etc., etc...).

Going to decide within the next few days whether to let them order it for me, or wait for the '14s.

They DID say, that with all the options I wanted, that even though yes they can order it now, it would probably be three months before I get it.

I'm sort of starting to get the feeling that this never ending chain of delays and more delays we have seen with the '13 model year isn't going to get any better with the '14s. Which has me leaning towards just ordering the '13. Just have a feeling if I wait for the '14s I'll actually be waiting until 2014. I'd almost bet we won't be able to drive a '14 diesel off the lot until at least a couple months into 2014...

Dunno... But it's time for me to decide.

They have a Lone Star ready to order for me. I wanted an Outdoorsman, but they claim they can't order it. I'm in the same debate, purchase now or wait. I might end up waiting until December and get a better deal on something on the lot. I'm trying to get a Crew Cab, 6'4" bed, 3.92, 8-speed, and Air Suspension. Many of the options are new, so nothing on lots yet.

I have can't get a Laramie 4x2 8sp so I'll have to wait for a 14.

I was able to get another dealer to price out my Outdoorsman. The pricing on the website and at the dealer are different. The package shows the 5.7l, but when the dealer prices it they add the 5.7l as another line item for $850. It doesn't seem right.

I am waiting for the 14, have an 11 right now. I will wait until May/June of 2014 (maybe later depending on pricing) to let them work the bugs out of the tranny. I always check the manufacture dates and get vehicles that are more towards the end of the manufacturing year.

Have you heard of any issues with the 8-speed? I've just read about not being up to keep up.

When you read this thread objectively, it makes you wonder what in the world Chrysler is thinking??!! Making it so hard to spend your money with them!! Hey Ram, I wonder how many sales y'all boys have lost to Ford, etc.?

I drove an F-150 this weekend to see if I liked it more. They could have lost a buyer. The Ram's interior and electronics are about 5-10 years ahead of the Ford.
