Default Thinking of ordering new... any advice?

I've been searching local dealer's online inventories for my "perfect" truck, but I just can't find it. There are several out there that are close, but are usually missing something particular that I want/need. So, I just may have to special order it. I've never done this before, so if any of you have had experience with this and have any advice please chime in.


Thanks,
Jake

Ordering new is no big deal. Go to the Dodge web site and use the "build my own" link at the top. You can select all everything you want. It will even show you who your local dealer is. It would be best to wait for the 11's to come out because I don't think there's enough time left in the 10 model year to order a truck. The site does not have the 11 trucks on it yet though. One thing to remember, there or packages so you may have to get some things you're not looking for in order to get the things you do want.

Here's the link. http://www.dodge.com

Thanks for replying.

Yeah, I've done the "build your own" thing and even conctacted the closest dealer via that link. When they responded, the salesman kept sending me trucks that were close, but missing the key features that I want. It was actually getting comical because he was getting further and further away from my "built" truck with each attempt.

I was actually hoping that I would beat the deadline for ordering a '10. That way when it finally arived, the rebates may be better for the purchase. But being that the middle of this month is the switch over to '11, I doubt that I'd make it in time.

Again thanks.

One other thing. Dodge is completely redoing the Ram in 12, so who knows what it will look like or what options will be available.

Will I have to put money down when ordering?

Who do I speak to at the dealership? Fleet sales? Regular sales staff?

Any idea of the build time once the order it placed?

Talk to new car sales. Don't know the answers to the rest of your questions.

Regular new car sales. Will usually have to put something down to show intent. $250 would do it. Mine took 6wks. Ordered in early/mid Feb and had it 3rd week in March (live close to Warren assy though too.

The ordering window for 2010 models wrapped up on April 26th. You'll have to check with your dealer to see if you can order a 2011 yet. They will probably want to push you to buy existing inventory, but just be persistent. If they still give you a tough time about ordering find another dealer.

Here is a short and sweet of what I'm looking for:

Crew Cab - easy to find
Sport (blue, black or flame red) - easy to find
dark grey leather - easy to find
rear seat entertainment package - this has been the problem (the reason I want the "factory" package is for the Sirius TV capabilities)
hemi - easy to find
3:90 posi - 50/50 on finding this with the sport

I want other options like remote start, rear view camera and performance hood, but those can be added at the dealership.
