Greetings.....I am shopping around my area for a new Ram 1500 with the diesel....I went to a dealer today who was unable to even get the diesel listed as an option for the truck!! not sure what's going on.......I decided this year to get a new vehicle since my others are 2001 Audi TT and 2003 Jeep Wrangler.........both with relatively low miles.....my motorcycle has more miles per year!! 2006 VTX with 53,000 miles. I finally got the wife on board....we went to the Auto show and both loved the Laramie Longhorn.....so that's what I am shooting for!! hopefully I will order one in the next two or three weeks!! :D

I would call around first, see who can actually get it or maybe check the Ram Trucks website for dealers that will have it

That is certainly curious, I wonder if it was just a system glitch, or an actual supply constraint? I think the second allocation will start production in May, but regardless I don't see why that would keep the dealer from being able to order?

Unless, they've reached their allocation as a dealer and are not allowed more?? I'm really not sure...

I'm in conversation with another!
I'm hearing there are now restrictions on DealerConnect. Supposedly Ecodiesel orders have been halted for 3 months because of configuration issues. Although I do believe the restrictions are due to allocation restrictions, because from what I've seen on a few other sites its not ALL dealers that are having the issue...

Interesting, good to know. Maybe it's the more high traffic dealers that might not be experiencing these issues.

think to the dealer has to mark truck as sold to be able to order it. At first they told me couldn't be built, but it could. Some key in the dodge system to show truck is "sold" dealers can't order to just have on their lot.

I ended up with another dealer, closer to me....ordered the truck this past Friday......I'm guessing I should get it mid June!
