Hey guys, hoping someone can knock some sense into me..
I put a deposit down for my TRX mid October, knowing I wouldn’t be seeing it for atleast a few months. The delays started happening and I’m trying to keep the faith! But I can only imagine I’ll be seeing my truck Q2/Q3. At that point, I feel like waiting for a 2022 would be the better option, or dampen my 26 year old excitement and get a less-thrilling truck like a 2500 Laramie or Limited, maybe a Power Wagon?
I’m currently riding around in my 06 F350, it treats me well but I know the value goes down every day, and it’s an old truck so I wouldn’t mind a bit of luxury sooner than later.

Hang in there time will fly by and you will regret giving up on it. I ordered in November and I am hoping for an April delivery.

Did your dealer have a confirmed allocation for you?

I think we’ll both have a better feel for when to expect our trucks once the first ones hit the pavement at their dealers. Too much free time to think is dangerous for me!

I’m honestly not sure... my build sheet is listed as a sold order and I have a VON but no VIN. Contacted FCA a few days ago just for fun and they said that they saw my order but no vin yet. Could that still mean I do/don’t have an allocation?

I sympathize as I am driving a 08 Chevy and it is a low trim and certainly seen better days. I am just trying to be patient and wait cause I know I will probably keep this truck a while too and don’t want to back off to save 1-3 months. Just hoping to see my LE VIN show up on here soon! But I would be lying if I said it hadn’t also crossed my mind.

@TankerTrash i am in the same boat as you. I ordered my TRX on 10/27, but after the delays and seeing the 75th Anniversary Power Wagon, I also put down a deposit on a 75th PW. I will take whichever one comes first unless the TRX is close.

I would wait but if you do it, get a Power Wagon!

Whatever you decide to do you can get any Ram truck at invoice price except the TRX.

If Ram follows the same trend last year, the order bank for the 2022 TRX should open around in May 2021 with production to start at the end of July.

Have you had any updates on the power wagon?!
I’ve been watching tons of YouTube stuff on the mega cabs... they really have my attention now 🤤

Well, if you want to haul ass with the whine of a supercharged Hellcat engine get the TRX. If you want a large off-road truck that can get the job done at a slower speed, with a winch, then go PW 😀

The only other truck I considered instead of the TRX was a Prospector XL.

Something just doesn’t seem right about giving up on a super truck with a hellcat engine for a comparatively generic pickup truck.

Just trying to talk some sense into you! Lol
I’ll just be desperate for a vehicle as I won’t have one and taking my wife to work in the morning so I can have her car will get old fast, but I agree with you.
