Apparently most of you have not read the complaints from RamforumZ members that have ordered a factory ordered Ram

They are told that they would have a Ram that is just what they ordered

Only when it arrives, it does NOT have Side Steps
Others get their Ram without a sun roof
Several have received the Wrong rear differential ratio

There are so many complaints that i need my Ram to be EXACTLY what i want
I put a minimum of 20,000 miles a year on my trucks
I run a business of my own & don't have time for Salesmen screw ups

That is the main reason that i need that particular form, so when i walk in to make my order, they can't tell me that i screwed up & have no recourse

Most of you apparently would be happy to take anything that they give you, at least from what i have read in your comments
__________________________________________________ _____________________________________
How many of you drive out of your driveway with your Ram at say 8 AM & pull back into your driveway at 11 Am with $175 check, i don't do labor, my Ram is what makes my money, all i do is drive it

I can drive from my place & less then 7 hours later return home with a $300 check, again no labor involved
On many occasions i have received a $700 check for driving 500 miles one way & i am home within 10 hours
All of my business is 100% legal

Something similar to this can not drive LEGALLY on the California roads without me or someone in my business being with them

When I ordered my '14 Sport back in April there was no "worksheet" from the dealer that I used. I went on the RamTrucks website and made a list of everything that I wanted and printed it out. And after reading about other special options (not listed in the build) that people have had the factory/dealer include in the sale of the truck, I wrote them down too.

When I was ready to place the order I brought in all of my paperwork and sat down with the guy at the dealership who is in charge of ordering trucks for the lot and for customers. Everything was done on his computer. He printed out the truck specs and options for me to review. Once I looked everything up and down and was satisfied with negotiated price, it was a matter of him clicking "place order". I was told that it would be 6-8 weeks.

I received shortly after a confirmation email with all options that were included and I reviewed that as well.

In June I took delivery if the truck and it was exactly the way I wanted it. It was a pretty smooth process.

Now obviously every dealership operates differently (some better than others) but everybody I dealt with was polite, reasonable, fair...and based on all of my research of what I should be paying on the sale of this truck, I know I got a great deal.

There's a difference between being knowledgable about what your getting yourself into and using that to your advantage vs. walking in with the intent to belittle everybody along the way with hardly giving folks a chance.

I never understand some of the tactics mentioned in this thread that imply that they are being nasty, arrogant, disrespectful, angry, etc. to get what you want. That's not how I like to do business, and it's certainly not how I want to remember the transactions of my car buying experiences. I get zero satisfaction out of bragging to others or even hearing about making people squirm or "demolishing" folks that could very well be good honest hardworking people. Unless I'm misinterpreting it all?

I walk into a dealership armed with all of my information. I tell them what I want and what I want to (reasonably) pay for the price of the truck. If they can't do it, I thank them for their time and leave. They always come back with something better and it's usually what I was looking for.

If that's your idea of squirm or demolish, OK. I'm with you.

I had a very good experience buying my RAM also and continue to have a great relationship with my dealer. I haven't had many problems with my RAM but the few I had were taken care of without any problems. I also get any parts I need from the Women at the parts counter wholesale.

It goes along way, when I need service I always get in right away ( I don't need to make an appointment for same day service) and when I bought my current truck (used) all I did was call him up and tell him what I was looking for. 2 weeks later he called and said he just took what I wanted in on trade. I bought it before it ever hit the lot (after it went through the inspection for a "certified pre-owned" I go to the salesman because he knows his stuff. I can walk in and talk to him about Rams anytime even if I'm just kicking tires he still treats me like I was buying a 60k truck......

I think that i am using the wrong terminology or something
Both when i was talking to the sales person & in this forumZ

I was then & still am looking for some answers & i did find some of them

There are Groups & these Groups have a Letter(s) & a Number
all i want is a cross reference between the 2

the codes that i am looking for are similar to something like this 22T & many others
Does anyone know what i am asking about ??


like:

Luxury Group (Fleet) - $695 , ( with this there is a Sales Code, Package # ???,
i have not been able to locate it, as yet )

Illuminated ashtray in the front; Engine bay light; Illuminated driver and passenger vanity mirror; Front reading lights; Illuminated glove compartment; Garage door opener; Coming home device; Heated driver and passenger door mirrors with turn signals; Leather-trimmed, steering wheel; Steering wheel mounted remote audio controls; Auto-dimming rear view mirror; Door entry light; Excludes: [EZH] 5.7L HEMI V8 VCT Engine

_ _ _ _ _ _ ____________________________________

sometimes while you are ordering certain things, the build site will read something like:

This item is Not available with ******** 22T
for instance

Could it be called a Quick Order Package ???

I am about to give up

GTyankee, I would almost pay for a plane ticket for you to come with me to the dealership when I buy my next one.
I've learned a lot more since I started reading this forum... I wish I had before I bought my truck. Maybe would have saved me some money...

Why would you want to use a 2014 build sheet (that does not seem to exist as a blank, printed form), to build a 2015 truck that does not even have option packages released yet? Seems like you are asking for a mix up when package codes and contents change, asking questions that nobody has answers to, and wasting time building something on paper that can probably never be built in real life.
