2 people from 2 different States can order the exact same 1500 series truck, at the same day & time & the last 6 numbers can be a single number apart.
The person living closest to Chicago will get their Ram first,
If the other Ram is going to Florida, or anywhere on the West Coast, may get their Ram as much as 2 weeks later & you can add another week for vehicles going to Vancouver Island or Nova Scotia

Hi Everyone. New to the Forum and have been reading much in the background. Thought I’d share my timeline to date.

On order is a 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary. Trailer package, patriot blue, ecodiesel engine, limited level 1 equipment group, and 33 gal gas tank. Yes has the dual sunroof as well—lots of chips I suppose.

Timeline to date:

12/15/21 — order placed
12/29/21 — email from RAM with VIN
1/25/22 — Truck built at Stellantis and build sheet available within 24 hrs
1/27/22 — Window Sticker available
1/28/22 — Had dealer check and should arrive at dealer in next two weeks

I’m shocked b/c I was told 16-18 weeks by the dealer. Ram Care said 7-9 weeks shortly before it was built. Really we are looking at maybe 61 days from the acknowledgement of the order by Ram. So, maybe good news at least for this particular manufacturing plant.

Anyway, thanks for all the good posts and information—been a real pleasure following the stories…

My current truck is a 2018 Honda Ridgeline RTL-e, and this will be my first “real“ truck as some of my friends have put it, lol.

I just got a call from the dealer, my 3500 BigHorn is scheduled to shop on Feb 21st and will take 5 weeks to get to the dealership in CA. That will put me close to 7 months from the date I ordered.

With the high demand for new vehicles, low interest rates, and 7% inflation if you want a new truck you better grab it. Even financing will save you money as long as the interest rate is lower than the inflation rate. I'm afraid we aint seen nothing yet.
Yeah it seems like the new market is starting to adjust to the used market. Granted demand drove the price up a little but inflation was the biggest factor for the price increase.

& calling it a Build Sheet

True, that is definitely a POC. Most build sheets on newer trucks will be at least 8 pages if not 10+, to show all standard and optional equipment.

If not already noted, build sheets can be found here once available:


Example from a few of my old trucks:

My Build sheet, only had the equipment that my Ram came with

The Window sticker had both standard & optional equipment

...............................................................................
BossHog i would say Lucked out on his Order Timing
In that he had no Transit Time, that cut delivery time by 1 to 3 weeks

He lives 30 or 40 minutes from the Assembly Plant

Right, my build sheets also only list what my rams came with as well. That includes all standard equipment as well as any options that were selected. I've never seen a build sheet that short, the shortest I have for the rams I've had is my 2011 regular cab sport at a little over 6 pages:


The window sticker shows a lot of this as well, but overall is not as complete as the build sheet for showing everything that particular truck has from the factory. The build sheet from what I can tell tends to be the most accurate source as well, as I've seen a few window stickers have incorrect information (although very rare).

And I agree on BossHog, he made out pretty well on his order and it is a beautiful truck!

There may be some light on the horizon for orders. Or, maybe I'm being lied to!:) Placed order at my dealer on 1/5 for a 2022 Big Horn 4X4 Crew Cab short bed Ecodiesel. Dealer said to expect 3-4 month wait. But, by the 11th, the order was in the system, VIN and VON assigned, all parts available and scheduled for production with an estimated ship date of 1/29 which would be less than 3 weeks from order. Hope it happens. I do have a question for anyone who has traded in another RAM on their new truck. I have a 2016 Tradesman Hemi Club Cab 4X4 with 65K miles I'll either trade in or sell myself. Have you been able to get Blue Book - more - less for trade ins lately?
Check around with some of the Internet dealerships, i got approx. 6k over blue book with money in bank within 12 days. Buddy sold his for 4800 over what he paid 2 years ago on his truck.
