I am in a similar situation as I am also purchasing a new truck. That said I agree with your point on resale value and plus I want to order the truck so I get the specific colors and options I want. The ordering is now open for the 2015's and I think the quads and crews go into production Oct. 6th. So, I am ordering a 2015 Laramie, quad, 4x4 wit the 3.6L Penta star, bucket seats, 4 corner air suspension, Ram boxes, sunroof, deep cherry red metallic - two tone with the brown interior. I am also going to have a few of the MOPAR accessories added - ambient lighting etc. and most sweet of all - I am changing out the single exhaust for a dual exhaust as on the Hemi. I just wrote the service manager at my local dealer and the parts including the bumper with the cutouts goes right on. I can't wait - it's gonna be great!
