I certainly paid over sticker for the RAM TRX ($15K) but I did so willingly. Nobody forced me to do it although, I was initially given an October 2020 delivery. Six months in and I don't seem further along though I take solace in knowing this Forum is here to vent and get news. I can only say to FCA that it will be the last time I will pay over sticker for any FCA vehicle. This is not unique to FCA as I ordered (put down my $ day 1) on a 2020 vette which was pushed to a 2021 so I cancelled. I'm sticking this out as the LE Gladiator is just too small but if the V8 Raptor already existed I'd be there!

We have similar taste in vehicles, I also have a 2018 Trackhawk, and 2020 LE Gladiator, along with 2019 JKU Rubicon, now a 2021 TRX on order - are you my brother from another mother?

oh by the way, I'm a Navy Vet and thank you for your service

Too Many, it’s a problem.

FCA is disappointed when they hear of ADM as it means they left money on the table... FCA does not benefit, only the dealer.

While I think the suspension on the TRX is better than the Rapter, the Rapter has a lot going for it. I am interested in seeing the weight comparison with similar HP. Get on both lists and decide when they show up... Deposits are not that much, and in states (including AZ) are fully refundable. I generally roll the deposits to another vehicle to keep the dealer happy though. Relationships with dealers can help at times.

I want a RAM as I think until they update the Raptor's interior it just doesn't seem up to snuff. I think I have an ok relationship with the dealer as I got a Ram 2500, Demon, Challenger, Trackhawk, LE Gladiator and about 1 Ram truck a year for work, I don't know what else they want. I consider myself a ok customer but when my dealer sells XX per month I guess I'm about as important to FCA as the flu.
