I threw money down on this Graphite msrp build earlier this week which is in “D” status (vin # 00493) and ordered by the dealer on 8/19/20.
Going thru previous threads I seen that it is possible with some dealer persistence that I can still make changes to the build. It is not 100% to my liking, but I do like the options.
I don’t need an engine block heater in Long Beach CA. The spare in the bed is not necessary, nor the bead lock (capable) wheels. I would rather have the RamBar or tri fold cover (or both like I have seen). Also, does it have to come in two-tone? It looks better without.
If I make the change (or try to) I am rolling the dice on getting it much later...or maybe sooner if I change the bead locks and carbon...??? This shit sucks.
Thinking about just flipping a coin and let the truck gods decide!

For sure you cannot change the paint option as they are all two tones unless you get black. I do not see why you shouldn't edit the rest though if you aren't happy about the current configuration.

Per a previous thread, if you can get your dealer to lite a fire under the FCA rep, sometimes people have been successful in making changes. Lots of dealers are lazy and will tell you it can’t be done..... they are full of Shite. Good Luck.

I see pics of other graphite trucks out there that are not PPF/wrapped and they look solid graphite, not two-tone. It is probably the photo angle or me being blind. Dunno

The graphite reallllllllly blends in in pictures. So far not able to order anything non two tone on the ram website, but if people keep asking or custom modding, I am sure anything is possible in the future!

@Caliche I can light a fire under them no problem, my biggest concern is delaying the shipment. I have only been obsessing over this truck for a minute, and the “delayed gratification” portion of my brain is in turmoil. Good news, not too many autos do this to me. Bad news, it always happens on new roll-outs. Gonna go flip a coin! LOL
