Default Hemi 8-Speeds Going on Limited Availability

I got wind today that the Hemi/8-speed combo is going on limited availability on certim trims. Some trims that will be affected are the CC 5'7 4x4 & 4x2 on various trim levels including the Laramie/Sport/LongHorn and few others. As most know the 4x2 Hemi/8-speed won't be built till June and all existing orders are guaranteed however any new orders for them will most likely not be available for 2013.

With just 3 days left in the 2013 order bank anyone looking for a 2013 Hemi/8-speed may not get the trim they want and will need to wait for the 2014's which will be available to order on 05/17. Though even the 2014 Hemi/8-speed combo may be limited on these same trims till June.

The reason being is supply from last shippent from Germany is running low and new shippent isn't due till Mid May. As well as 2013 order banks will close soon.

Oh I almost forgot.

The Kokomo Transmission Plant and the Kokomo Casting plant won't be producing the 8-speed 8HP70 for the Hemi till Sometime in Q4. which means the 2013's will all be from Germany As will some of the early 2014's

The plants are setup as of January but haven't been able to produce them to pass ZF quality standards due to issues with tooling. This required the plant to retro fit machinery.

I wasn't expecting it till early to Mid June when I ordered on March 9th anyways. This is why I said our trucks probebly won't get built till mid May waiting on the 3rd shippent from Germany.

We should see our trucks go into D1 soon though

This might be the primary reason behind the 2013 delays...

Yes it is one of the main reasons for delays the other is the Air Suspension supply as well. Ram didn't expect such a huge demand for the Air Suspension and the supplyers had a hard time keeping up with demand. They have however caught up with supply for the Air Suspension.
