they were a short box regular cab and have a brushed aluminum fuel door
the tail lights also had yellow covers.

Again sorry to break it to you.
This has happened to many people dealers have made alot of fakes just so they can raise the prices.
you don't say...

Just to add a little to this thread. When I was looking to purchase a new pick up I was looking at the rumble bee as an option, but wasn't sold on the yellow and finding a black one at the time was very hard to come by. So I opted for the hemi sport package. Body wise the sport package pretty much had the same ground effects hood scoop and looks of the rumble bee just offered in more colors. I also was able to get a extended cab which was not offered in the rumble bee package. Interior is different did not have the yellow accents which was the same in both the black and yellow versions. With that said I decided I liked the rumble bee graphics idea. So I took a extended cab silver hemi sport and customized it how I wanted it. Interior is accented in silver not yellow I bought a fighting bee and applied it to the door panels. Removed the boring hemi sport off the box and bought a After market rumble bee strip kit and installed it. Using the same window banner saying that has been on all my dodges for 10 plus years. All my decals are similar in design but easy enough to tell that they are not original decals for the rumble bee. I have seen where a lot of you have called us per say member's a wanna be for having trucks done up in the rumble bee package format. And my take on that is this. First and for most the lay out of a truck is in the eye of the beholder not any one else. They are allowed to do to their truck what they want and how they want. there are tones of trucks and cars people have done up out there that look ten folds better then factory ever could have or even offered. Maybe instead of knocking them or bashing them you should get to know them first. Calling something real that is fake is wrong in my book I do not agree with people that do that, but never have I done so I am honest about my truck. It isn't real i designed the lay out I like the lay out . They didn't have what I was looking for from factory so I started with the bases and designed it my way. And if dodge was to ever build a bee that was silver this is how I would have envisioned it to look. I love my truck and where it is going. Its still not finished but someday soon I hope to have it done. Fake yes as in not factory, original yes because it was done my way. If it wasn't for imagination we all would drive identical rides and we wouldn't have something to walk up to a perfectly good strange to converse about.

I agree 100%. My truck is a one off step-side that I had to fabricate out of what I could get and make it work. If Dodge HAD offered a step side, I'd own one of those. Hopefully it'll be finished soon. The decals I had made for the door are for a truck that didn't exist in an era that wasn't offered. I chose to make the R/T stand for (recycled truck) Off road "track".

You ask what makes a bee special,,,the owner that's what. If you love your truck bee happy. Personally if you went out found a ram and you tricked it out to look like a rumble bee that makes you,,you. If a truck caught your eye and while test driving it you found yourself saying I love this truck and it has rumble bee decals but its not a numbered rumble bee should you peal off the bee? That's up2 u, but remember its your truck.

Default 4 door Bee

I saw a 2005 quad cab "Bee" at a local GMC dealership a few months ago in an auto shopper paper. It clearly stated Rumble Bee edition in the ad. I called and talked to a salesman who wanted to sell me this Rumble Bee edition truck in the worst way. I told him there was no such thing and if he was a Mopar dealer he would know the difference. I told him to look it up and then change the ad to reflect it was a yellow sport with decals on it.
