Default Did You buy off the Lot or Order your RAM?

I ordered my truck because I was picky about the options & didn't want to sacrifice. How about you? Did you find what you wanted on the dealers lot? Maybe sacrifice some options for a better year end deal off the lot?

Off the lot for me, got a great deal. The ONE option I do wish I had was sunroof, but I'm very happy with my purchase, truck has all my must-haves.

I wanted very specific options on the truck. I was driving a 2012 Ram 1500 that didn't have everything I wanted so I planned to factory order my next truck. I happened to find one on the lot that met my specifications and went ahead and bought it. I got a great deal on it and although I wasn't planning on upgrading for at least 6 months I just couldn't pass this up.

It was love at first sight. I took one look at that Western Brown Laramie CC with every option I wanted plus a good deal and that was it. I love this truck, my wife loves this truck and the dog loves it, what more can you ask for.

I had the dealer get my truck from a dealer about 30 miles away with most of the options I wanted. They swapped a mini van for the truck. Next time I may haggle the local dealerships for the best deal on a factory ordered one.

Off the lot for me. I went to test drive one and ended up leaving in one. I hadnt planned on getting one that day (soon just hadnt planned that soon) but the deal i got i couldnt pass it up. It is pretty well equipped but that has also allowed me to make it my truck, the one option i wish the truck had was the RAMBOX but I'll take the deal i got anyday.

I test drove at 2 local dealers. I wanted very specific things but did not want to wait the time it takes to special order. My local dealer was lucky to find on about 300 miles away that met all of my needs (at least I thought until it arrived....) But, I was able to get past the one thing missing and got a really good deal. So, it felt like a special order but it was off a dealer lot.

Ordered mine because a two tone blue streak CC EcoD w/ Air suspension and Ram Boxes is hard to find. Plus I didn't want to pay for things like bed liner/dealer remote start/side steps etc for the length of my finance term.

Bought mine off the lot for two reasons. I sold my previous vehicle prior and so was without a vehicle and a good deal. Wished I had ordered one because while I love my truck and it has most of what I was looking for, there are some goodies I really wished I had.
