Default keyless entry and pushbutton start?

not a deal breaker, but looking at Laramie's and haven't seen this in the 2013's is it available?

found 2 near me I like, neither has it though.

one is a crew cab and the other a quad.

the crew has the 8 speed tranny with the turn wheel shifter... is it strange that I like the keyless and pushbutton options but don't like the turn wheel shifter? ....

You'll get over the shifter gonna after the first week. I wanted an 8 speed, but did not like the shifter. I still got the 8 speed and am used to the shifter and have no complaints with it.

I have the push button start in my 2013 Ram R/T and love it. I would not of ordered it but since I have it I probably would the next time I purchase a new truck. It came with the truck off the lot.

I love the proximity sensor and push button. Can't live without it now. Oh and I really like the remote key fob much better looking than the old one.

I highly suggest getting the 8 speed even if you don't like the shifting knob. I was completely against the 8 speed due to the knob but I decided to just do it because the 8 speed would give me better performance and mileage. Boy am I glad I did! In fact now I actually like the shifting knob and the tons of space for storing stuff in the console. And the keyless entry and push button start was one of the main reasons I chose Ram! Nothing like being able to bring nearly 400hp to life with the push of a button . Also keyless entry is amazing. I just carry my fob in my pocket and I never have to take it out which is amazing. Also I am not a fan of the look of the key so it is in a safe place at home. And there is a key built in to the fob if you need one. The only downsides of the 8 speed and keyless entry is getting in other vehicles! I drove a suv that had column shifter and no keyless system and I tried to shift into drive with the radio controls. And I also left the keys in and had it unlocked until I got about 5ft away and realized what I did.

seems like every time i find the truck it's missing something i want... find the keyless/pushbutton in the color i want and it doesn't have the air suspension or the 8spd. i would have one ordered but i was told it would be a 2014 and all the rebates are on the 2013's.

I am sure there will be rebates on the 14 too. There always are. Ordering is the only way to go for me. If I am spending that kind of money, I am getting EXACTLY what I want. I quit settling for what is available years ago.
