    Hey guys, ordering this weekend I think

    I've built a nice truck (dealer's words). Now its time to order it. Sounds to me like the dealer is being pretty reasonable. They've committed to $13,500 in rebates and incentives.Truck MSRP is $43,395 plus $12,700 in options (including the diesel $4500.) Plus destination, $1695.
    Total comes out to $57640
    - All rebates $13,500
    Price to pay $44,140. plus taxes and financing.
    Its a crew,
    4x4
    Air suspension
    Premium cloth buckets
    Comfort Group
    Trailer tow group
    Remote start
    SLT plus decor group
    Protection group

    Seem fair?

    Thanks in advance
    Paul

    You've really optioned that up to Limited level, you may want to consider looking at the standard items on the Limited and weigh your options. You will get the air suspension, remote start, spray-in bed liner. Of course, the only interior option is black leather, which may be a deterrent. There seems to more options on the dealer lots in the LImited trim, as well, in my area, at least.

    I started looking at Laramie, but settled on the Limited, since they were optioned where I wanted them, when I found them on dealer lots. A custom order may best, since you know what you want.

    The Laramie has 3 trim levels, so you don't have to go all the way to a Limited to get some of those standard options. We chose the Laramie Longhorn because the Limited only came with a Black interior and with 2 dogs, black doesn't work with dog fur.

    I started thinking Laramie too but the final sticker was about $2-3k higher than the optioned out big horn. Not sure I want to keep on creeping up there north of $50k USD on msrp but some of the included amenities sound nice in the Laramie.

    When I first started considering Ram I wanted the Hemi no doubt. That kept the msrp around 43-44k. Then with the ED3 it's creeping up to 48-49k. Yowser. I've got the preverbal devil vs angel fighting it out on my shoulders. Been a long time since I bought new so it's hard to jump into a payment again.

    Paul - are you in Canada?

    I just tried ordering today, central Maine, and two dealers said they can't order any more 2014. Need to wait two plus weeks and it will have to be 2015. Unclear on incentives. You have a great discount. Anxious to hear if you can order it.

    Yes I am, vancouver bc.
    The rebates are as follows:
    $8500, current rebate (Chrysler)
    1500 loyalty. If you own a dodge now, you get the rebate.
    1000 off if you currently have a financed chrysler vehicle.
    $2500.00 trade in value, this is just good faith on their part, I'm not trading in.
    and a 1% reduction on the loan rate because of having a current financed Dodge. Advertised rate right now is 4.29% so I will get 3.29%.
    I'm going to try and get a bit more discount but I'm getting the feeling I'm almost at the price they need to be at. I'm waiting for the "what can we do to earn your business?" question. Planning to order on Saturday. End of month, they seem pretty motivated to make this happen. Once I order i'm going to have a hard time with the wait...

    Good suggestion. I did that after I read your post. Upgrading the trim levels ups the price, no matter what. Its not much but the optioned SLT is a bit better off than the other trim levels.

    FWIW Paul, my vote is to order the truck! Then again, I've always enjoyed spending other people's money...
