Default Can't order Laramie 4x2 cc 8 speed ????

Went to 3 dealers in 2 states and they can't order the truck I want. They can order it in 4x4. Or I could go with the 6 sp. I don't think so.

It would be great if there were a way to get the official story from RAM as to what is happening with all the restrictions. It would seem that if sales have exceeded projections they would build those they can make the most money on, which would be the 4X4. I don't know, just a guess on my part!

It just tics me off. I have found a dealer that gave a great price and now he can't order the dam thing unless it's a 4x4. I get your point about max dollars for the company, but I think they are playing with fire. GM & Ford are going to answer with their own upgrades. I just hope they get it worked out maybe for the 14's.

I don't blame you from being ticked off. As mentioned before it would be helpful if RAM shared some information as to why things are the way they are.

Same boat here, wanting a 4x2 Sport and don't want to settle for the 6-speed. At this point, it seems doubtful to me that there will be any 2013 4x2 8-speeds built, so they won't be available for the year-end incentives if that is the case.

When will they open the order bank for 14's? It looks like that's what there up to. Pretty crappie marketing and sales plan IMHO.
