Wow. That would be crazy. I can see it not being one of the more popular colors, but I can't believe they would only have it available for one year on the Ram. If that IS the case, I'm glad I bought a '13.

Here are the colors for 2014 that are currently on restriction:
(PAU) Granite Crystal paint
(QX8) Black paint
(PBU) True Blue paint
(PAR) Maximum Steel paint
(PUG) Black Gold Pearl paint
(PCL) Blue Streak Pearl paint
(PEP) Western Brown paint
(PFA) Prairie Pearl paint

If the color is not available to order now and is not on this restriction list then I guess one could concur that it has been discontinued for 2014....

I wanted a 2013 Laramie and was told it did not come in Copperhead (monotone) in that trim but does in Sport and SLT

I emailed Chrysler and received this response

It is great to read of your interest in the 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie
Longhorn!

We regret to read that you are unable to place a factory order for a 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn equipped with the Copperhead Pearl Coat exterior paint color. According to our resources, the Copperhead pearl Coat exterior paint color is not being offered as an available factory order option for the 2014 Ram 1500 model lineup. At this time, no information has been provided indicating that the Copperhead Pearl Coat exterior paint color will be available in the future for the 2014 Ram 1500 models.


On to plan B, now I need color swatches of

(PAU) Granite Crystal paint
(PAR) Maximum Steel paint
(PCL) Blue Streak Pearl paint

Chrysler has used Granite Crystal and Blue Steak Pearl on other vehicles and I love Maximum Steel. I wished that the Limited I ordered was available in the Max Steel. Just google Granite Crystal Metallic and Blue Streak Pearl Coat and you should see chargers and/or challengers with that paint.

your right and some I like Blue Streak Pearl and some I dont Granite Crystal. Now I am not trying to offend anyone with this comment, it is why car manufactures have different colors because we all dont want white or black

It's just a little strange to me... the orange for 09 is a shade darker then the 13. The 10 orange is much brighter. Neither of these were extremely popular.

Why the sudden interest in this orange I wonder?
I agree, I love my Sunburst. You don't see many of them. At least on the 4th gens.

I saw a copperhead in person a few months back and of course I liked it although it looked a lot darker than that pic posted.

That pic looks almost like sunburst.

It really depends on the way the light hits it. In the sunlight, it looks like a lighter orange. Other times, when the sun isn't out, it looks pretty dark.

Yeah it has a little more orange in it. Sunburst is more of a red orange.

Sunburst is the same way. In the shade it looks dark and almost red, but in the sun light it pops.. I think is had something to do with the pearl paint. The Deep Water Blue is the same way...

Beautiful color but....Copperhead is a metallic which makes it a real devil to match if a repair needs to be done. Not only is the color difficult to match, but it must be done in such a way that it will appear compatible to the rest of the truck in all lighting conditions. Also, the metallic must be laid down properly to achieve the same effect.
