Just heard from my dealer that there’s a shortage on parts for the Level 2 package. Those items are ventilated seats, carbon fiber and bead locks. I know those aren’t all Level 2 but the ventilated seats are. Has anyone heard anything similar from their dealer?

Nope Not a rumor!
No Beadlocks, carbon, or lvl 2 seats...
Limited availability on 2 tone paints, lv1 seats...

They have enough for some orders but future orders will not get these options but if you do order you might not see your build for a long long long time...


Hope your build comes before March...

I have to reach out to some sources...
From the info I've seen I would say builds are safe until March... but if you have any of the things listed above you could get pushed if inventory doesn't recover... and it is saying a LONG push, maybe even to MY22

Geez. I’ve got a March delivery email, but not feeling too safe. Still no estimated build date per dealer so is at least 2-3 weeks out. I wonder why I’m the heck they did a new round of allocation with this on the horizon. FCA never ceases to amaze.

wow. this stinks. so my 3/1 build week is now in jeopardy. I just had hope again. What is worse is, I am past D status so I can't back out again without losing my deposit so I can't try to pick up a black one somewhere that might be in inventory unless the officially tell us who is getting one and who is delayed.. I have all the parts that are listed in the shortage list. sigh

Gah this is worrying. I wish FCA would offer some sort of information. If I’m looking at more than a month from now let alone late into the year I’d like to buy something else. Hopefully I can get some info by end of next week. I’ve got both lvl2 seats and carbon in my build....

What's your understanding of the upcoming Launch Editions? I need a drink...

FCA chat said they aren't aware of any delays. Also, if your build status is frame, whats the completion timeline look like ( under normal circumstances)

I hope "some orders" include people who ordered their trucks day one. At some point, the sequence of orders has to mean something. :cautious:
Its painfully obvious that sequence means dick to Ram! I'm on the fence about letting my LE go! This has been a horrible experience! I was trying to stay positive but the went out the window 2 months ago!

Ok so let me see if I can clear this up some with this info a few people have sent me so far... Like I said earlier I haven't reached out to sources yet but this is what I interpreted from the info:

Based on the info. They only want FUTURE orders to basically be black TR1 so they can let the inventory recover while still building TRX's.

They are going to balance out builds this week this week so they can get trucks out. I'm going to wait a week & pull build dates again to see the changes but I know there are a couple anvils & a granite that got made for this week.

If you have a build date before March, you are most likely safe, just depends on what shuffling they do.
After March, if inventory doesn't recover, then if you a lv2, 2 tone paint, carbon, or beadlocks in your build... your getting pushed... and some people might get pushed until MY22... And even then they only have but so many TR1 seats left...

And the exact words used were "no/little" remaining March capacity and I know for a fact that builds were slow today...

So the next 5 weeks are going to be very important. So that explains the all black TRX's and people who ordered in Oct getting builds.

I AM NOT PULLING ANY NEW BUILD DATES UNTIL NEXT WEEK AFTER THEY RESHUFFLE BUILDS!!!!

Curious why two tone paint would matter?
My order is for a white one. The only reason for two tone is because that’s all they offered.
