Even though the TRX BUILD option on the RAM website shows you can get the Blind Spot and Cross Path Detection option, either standalone or in Level 2, I am being told by dealer and area rep that due to parts constraints (IC chips) they are not likely going to build my truck with the BS&CP option! Anybody else hear this on an order in the last month or two? I see it was an issue late last year, if the posts I found are an indication...

That sucks if it’s true. That is almost a must have option with a truck this big. I ordered in September waiting patiently for it to arrive . I will be pissed if my truck arrives without it especially waiting this long.

This was posted 2 weeks ago. While it does not specify the TRX, things may have changed.

My dealer said it would only effect vehicles ordered in February and that it would not effect previous orders.
Take it for what it's worth.

Grrr...(damn gamers) What's weird is that so many of the CJDR vehicles use the same tech and what looks to be the same sensors, etc - why are they choosing to make the Ram folks suffer?

Are they offering you the $250 / $300 discount they were offering folks who purchased Laramie's with the removed option?

RobR651 - so far, no mention made of that possibility. And Bambi, although I see your point, it's more of a principle thing than one of needing the money...
Right now, I told my dealer make notes and make noise letting them know if there's any way they can come up with the parts to do it! I want the option, not the break in the money!

I’d agree with you if you’re spending $80k+ on a truck you should have whatever options you’d hope to get. You might be waiting a while though

I was wondering if that’s what they’re offering for it to not be included. That’s the “discount” they’re offering on the Laramie and other models. I doubt anyone cares about a $300 discount.

Yeah. Understand. It’s just a garbage “discount”

Like if they ran out of seats and delivered you a truck without seats but gave you a discount at their cost for seats. I DIDNT ORDER A TRUCK WITHOUT SEATS

It’s a worthless discount. It would be more interesting to know if they’re not including it now and still charging the full boat.

Totally get the principle and don’t disagree with you. I’d probably tell them to keep the money and buy half a decal for themselves out of principle too. Ridiculous. They could at least make the amount meaningful.

100% agree. If you’re whacking options they should at least give you a real discount not $300

If my truck shows up without blind spot or parksense (part of Level 2) they will be giving me $$, or at least someone will. My POC says level 2. Level 2 is documented with it (still is on the website) and Ram nor my dealer told me any different. That is rather illegal.

As for retail cost, I feel it is similar to the advanced safety group. So something near that should be about right. That or a "IOU" and they can install later.

Accept truck then hire @Crazyotter ’s lawyer. Sue for fraud. 50k TRX after settlement
