True, My dad has his car shipped from NY to FLA and back every winter. Costs him $600.00 Now tell me Ram is not making money on that.We are all right there with you on the delivery times. I would say, 90% of us here ordered trucks. (only a few found one on the lot) Mine took 3 weeks to get shipped, and I'm only 200 mi away, in Pitt. As mentioned above... the rail system is back logged. But... the quoted "Order Time" is 8 weeks. So... regardless, it sounds like you got it within that time. (but we feel your pain)
As far as the shipping price... that's a $$$ that was averaged out. Guys that live 10 mi from Warren pay the same $1190 that a guy in San Diego CA pays. I'm sure it make's Ram's life much easier, than to calculate a shipping price for every truck. Besides... the guys way down in SoCal, Tx, or FL would be PISSED if they had to pay $3K~$4k to ship a truck.
