Anyone with the new 8 Speed

Ordered new Ram, found out I can only get the new 8 speed... I wanted the 6 speed with the floor shift. Is the 8 speed better. I know the 6 was always a issue. Let me know with your experience with the 8 speed

No Hemis with the 8 speed are out on the road yet, but they are being built right now. The V6 guys with the 8 speed seem to like them a lot. It'll be a couple months before we have any reviews of the Hemi/8speed combo.

As of late last week it was still not confirmed as a build according to my salesman...no updates this week. Will hopefully have more information next week.

Just ran my VOD found my Truck is being produced. Dealer told me he was able to push it for a 5 week turnaround, but I'm thinking more like 8 weeks. What model and color? I'm going with another Sport in the new color Maximum Steel.

Anything new with your order? Received a VIN, but it shows a RR after the first 3digits. Shows it's being built in US. Still no signs of it being built. Can't get any info from dodge. Found a website saying they are on hold till April... Hope that is not true...

I haven't heard anything new yet. A couple of weeks ago it still was not a confirmed build...several constrained items including sunroof, rambox, air suspension, wheel to wheel sidesteps. Hopefully will hear some good news on it from my salesman this week!
