I came across this website by accident. http://www.lotpro.com/cars/new/ram/1500/options/

If you scroll thru the available options for whatever model you are trying to order it says here "no longer factory orderable" I dont know how reliable or accurate this site is.

example:
26L SPORT CUSTOMER PREFERRED ORDER SELECTION PKG -inc: 5.7L V8 Hemi engine, 8-speed auto trans *Upon selection of this pkg, the cost of powertrain components will be added* *No Longer Factory Orderable, See Dealer for Current Availability*

Hold the presses! An update! I just got off the phone with the dealer. He says, when he does a "build" (on the computer of course) with a 8 speed and Hemi it now allows him to build it (in other words it is not "restricted"), however, it does not give pricing. So according to him that means it can be ordered but pricing may not be firm. He said this sometimes happens with new models or during model year changes. Regarding delivery he said for sure it will be more then 8 weeks but he is not sure how much long then that.

I'm not sure if all of the OEM's operate this way but it seems as though a little "official" information from Ram would go a long way! Even the dealers are confused!

So my optimism has faded and I'm back to searching for a truck with the options I want or waiting for 2014. Damnation!

My dealer called me last evening to tell me it looks like we can order the 8 speed now. I would love to buy from current inventory but apparently there are no 8-speed Big Horn Crew Cabs with the 3:92 rear end and the options I want within 500 miles of us.

Price has been $500 for the 8 speed. I hope they aren't changing that.

I just ordered an Outdoorsman CC/6'4 Box/Hemi/8Spd today. From the 1/2 dozen dealers I talked to, 2 said they couldn't even click the 8 spd box (restriction) and the other 4 could do it without issue. I sat there and watched my guy click the box and build the truck. It certainly appears that some dealers are being singled out and not allowed to place orders.
