My truck went from paint status yesterday to shipping status this morning. That allowed me to print my window sticker and I see they have done another price increase on the truck since 07/23/13. The increase is only $385.00, but since I started the process in February, 2013 with my first order, the price of the truck has gone up just over $1,000.00. In the latest increase, they raised the base price $185.00, the air suspension increased $100.00 to $1,695.00 and they increased the destination charge another $100.00 to $1,195.00. If I'm not mistaken, the destination charge was increased $100.00 in May of this year as well. Does anyone know if Chrysler honors the price at the time of the order? My agreement with the dealer is $500.00 under invoice, so I doubt they will want to dig deeper into their holdback money to make up the difference.

Ordered and waiting (nothing yet but my local dealers word)

2014 Limited
Granite crystal metallic
rambox
sunroof
lsd/3.92

Roughly a year and a half of thinking/re-thinking/studying/brand-shopping/comparing/reading and its done

Now I need to fill my next list prior to delivery:
-CAI?
-radar
-bakflip
-catch can
-extended warranty?
-y pipe
-zaino products

Oh boy, here we go
All over but the waiting.

I have to admit a huge weight is off of my shoulders.

My status went to "inspection" on Monday. Thinking that I have about another month to go?

Last Friday, mine got inspected but failed. It's been sitting in storage since...

This is super frustrating! And to add salt to the wound, Ram looks to have increased pricing across the board, in the last couple days. So not only do I not know when they will ship, it looks like I'm going to be charged more!

I had my dealer lock in the price when I ordered it. I am getting 1000 below invoice and he's paying off the trade in. Well, the price he quoted me on the trade was miraculously the same as what I owe on it. I wanted a little more on the trade but I doubt I will see it. All in all I feels its a fair deal. Oh and I checked yesterday, the truck is in the rail car between Arkansas and Illinois. Should be here roughly next weekend.

They must figure they are going to make up the loss on your trade in when they sell it. $1000.00 under invoice plus they are going to eat any cost increase by Chrysler doesn't leave very much of the holdback money remaining. Add in a tank of fuel and any sales commission and they end up taking a loss. There has to be some factory to dealer incentives floating around in there that we as a customer never will hear about? Glad to see you were able to lock in your price with the dealer, as that will definitely save you some dough.

When I ordered mine I got a copy of the invoice and the order sheet with the exact price (minus TTL of course). Did they not give you something like that?

Are you talking about something like this?



If so, that doesn't mean much because final pricing doesn't happen till the plant invoices the dealer.... and my understanding is, they don't use the pricing at the time of order. Which I think is just wrong.. It should be priced based on the time of order...

That's what my dealer used and quoted me on.
