OK, so the only EcoD I have seen is the one we own and to date I havent seen a single one in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. So, I'm wondering how many are out there now?

I talked to a guy who said he was heavy into Rams. When I mentioned I had recently bought a half ton diesel version, he was flabbergast that one even existed. News to him.

Don't feel bad. I'm from Detroit and there are RAM trucks EVERYWHERE, but they are virtually all Hemi's. I have yet to see a diesel, other than at a dealership.

At a dealership? I was told by our dealer that they are not allowed to have any until outstanding orders are fulfilled.

Makes sense, no point having trucks on the lot collecting dust, best to get them sold before bringing in new ones

I still havent even been able to get a test pilot in one. My local has sold a couple but they're straight in and out. Looks like I may have to wait for the second batch before they get any demo rigs...

im sure the base model 1500 still sells the most

Yeah the regular 1500 petrol model should be easy to find but of course you're here cause you want the diesel model,

I dunno man they seem to be moving them with no worries right now. Although I've heard there are supply constraints with the engine from Italy.

Ordered Mine 2/10/14 came in this week and picked it up yesterday. So far I am impressed. The 3.0 has a lot of pep and 8 speed works oh so smooth. Love the air ride. Came with 275/60/20 4 ply went down to tire shop right away and put on 275/65/20 10 ply as I live in country and travel a lot of gravel roads. Will try and update as time goes along.

Congrats on your new truck...the 10 ply is going to roughen your ride a little, but it beats changing out a tire on the side of the road.

First ED in Town

Picked mine up about 3 weeks ago. Dealer said it was the first one they had received and sold. They are waiting on dealer orders to arrive. I am stunned by the number of folks who have no idea what I am driving. Typical conversation.."Nice Truck, is that a Diesel?" "Thanks, Yes it is." "Why did you buy a HD, you don't tow much?" etc....

I've added Mopar steps, Husky floor mats, ARE Topper, Husky mud flaps and have de-badged everything cept the Ram emblems and the ED and Ram badge on the side. (they may go soon.)

Very Happy So Far.

8,000+ more on order. But given the vast area of the USA it's like a needle in a haystack.

Indeed, it is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Still haven't seen a single one on the road to date.
