My 2c ...

I kinda used MMiller's posted experience as a guide on what to expect on a factory order before I placed mine.

My dealer told me to expect 18 weeks.


01/31/2022 - placed my order with Mark Dodge in Lake Charles, LA

02/02/2022 - received my VIN

02/14/2022 - JS - shipped to storage

02/24/2022 - KZT - 2nd rail departure

02/28/2022 - arrived by rail in Baton Rouge, LA

03/11/2022 - arrived at the dealer

03/12/2022 - drove over from Houston to pick it up with 16 miles on the odo

40 days from order to dealer - less than 6 weeks.

I trusted the Ram website to inform me of active incentives before I went to go buy it - seemed like I was eligible for $500 cash back.

When I bought it the dealer informed I was eligible for $2750 cash back - woohoo!

I hope the rest of you have similar luck.
Very pretty truck. Congratulations.

Thanks, Dean - looks like you must be the president of the 'Red Rams Club' :)

I did the whole dealer build process the other day after my truck got T ***** and screwed up the cab. However after pricing out the exact truck I want, it was cheaper to buy the one truck they had on the lot and it was a larmine vs I was buying a big horn. Go figure

Well, something showed up for me this weekend after an over 6 month wait!
