Default Ordering over dealer inventory

Was wondering if I order instead of taking from dealer inventory do I get same discounts?

Thank you.

You should get the same discounts, but if you go with dealer inventory then you have more leverage for haggling.

Dealers here don't have a sport trimmed the way I want it. Either fully loaded or just a few options. I plan to keep this for awhile. Was thinking I might as well get it the way I want it and not regret that I didn't get things I wanted. Sunroof and air suspension are the only things I don't want.

Do you care which tranny you get? If you're ok with the 6 speed you probably just need to widen your search a bit. It'll be hard to find one without a sunroof, but the better discount on 2013s will probably make up that difference. Air suspension is kinda rare so should be easy to find one without it.

when the models come out each year
the dealers orders are not filled first & they will take anything that the factory sends them

walk around your dealership now & look at the radio that is in them
it may be have most all of the goodies everywhere, but the radio will be a 3" RA1 without Uconnect or the 5" RA2 with Uconnect
the only ones that have the better 8.4 radios are either a Laramie or a factory order that was refused by a discouraged customer, especially orders that a customer cancelled because they waited too long for it to show up
The Special order Rams that were cancelled by the customer, are the ones to keep your eyes opened for, even after the customer refuses the order, they are still built & sent to the dealership that they were ordered though

Use the build and search function at ramtrucks.com to save yourself a lot of walking/driving around. You can search the entire country. It also shows vehicles in transit to the dealer, so if you find what you want you might be able to lock it up before it even gets to the lot.
