Uh can we get more DETAILS? If you ordered it, then you must have a rough idea of general options. Was there a 6 speed available on the Hemi? Do you have any other insights? I can't find a *******ed 2012 order guide anywhere on the web and orders started Monday.

I placed the order from Dave Dennis in Beavercreek, Ohio. I somewhat was ordering in the dark. The trucks and options were available but no pricing listed. Hopefully I can see what I got myself into in the next week or so. I went straight to the 2500 Laramie Diesel, so I did not look at any other motors. No books available, it was all done in front of the computer. The only big differences I noticed was the packaging of options. The 730 radio/navigation is now standard as well as the backup camera. Did not see any other new option listed compared to last years models. Description did say interior LED lighting though. I was told the body style did not change. I will keep you all up to date as I receive more information from the dealership. They are supposed to call me when pricing becomes available.

Do you recall how many color options were available? When I went to order a Ram 3500 Megacab in April only 4 colors (ones that did not contain Xirallic) were available.

The paint plant in Japan is up & running
by the time that Ram 1500s start 2012 production, the week of July 4th, 2011
all the paints colors should be in stock
the company that runs that plant is also building another factory in Germany, but that will take about a year or more

rumors say
6 speed automatic transmission,
ZF rear end, like in some Jeeps,
3.99 ratio instead of 3.92
ratio options will be 3.21, 3.55, 3.99, & 4.11 for 2 & 4 wheel drives
3.55 will have a LSD OPTION
4.56 ratio will only be available for 2 wheel drive, because nobody builds a 4.56 front axle

Time will tell

Don't be surprised if your 6 speed is the existing 545RFE programmed to use 2nd prime on each upshift.
