Just walk in to the dealer that has the truck & loudly announce that you are here to buy a truck & you want to pay sticker. See where it goes from there.

If you have a decent trade they’ll likely give you good money toward your new truck purchase for that.
Might want to try Costco’s car buying service to get a better price but don’t hold your breath.
All in all a horrible time to be trying to buy a new or used car or truck, and no signs of things getting better anytime soon.

There are a few dealers at below invoice but you have to order the truck. Probably a four month wait. On the lot your paying at least MSRP, if not more. Still no inventory.

Try and find a SRW 3500 with the HO Cummins and Aisin if you can that is the way I ordered mine a few years back gets you 50 more HP and 200 more ft/lbs of torque for a couple k more over the standard Cummins, My .02 cents.

A buddy just took delivery of a 2022 Ram 2500 std cab Cummins HO with the AISIN trans that he ordered and was talking about selling it back to the dealer and ordering another .
He literally just got it on Wednesday.

He decided that he wants more options on his truck, and he got a Tradesman that didn't have all the stuff he now decides that he wants.
He won't need to pull his race car trailer till spring.

He bought it at the Friends pricing so he got it cheaper than sticker so he figures the dealer would want it back.
He probably hasn't put a 100 miles on it.

He's qwkmopardan here on Moparts.
Link to his user info on here.

If anyone is interested, message him or I can get you contact info.

Are you at least receiving a friend and family discount? As my friend jokes that the discount is granted through the Sunday newspaper. Once the new year comes, I’m sure there will be a deeper discount, if you can hold out and flexible on trim level/options/color?

As fugly as those things are I'm surprised they aren't giving those things away for the price of a Taco Bell taco box meal.

RECORD PROFITS for dealerships and car companies. NOBODY is EVER going back to the old way of flooded dealer lots and incentives. Those days are all used up. Dealers skip having to floor-plan the vehicles, cutting their cost. Car companies can build whatever they want (think highest profit units) and they are going to sell every one of them at full sticker. The pandemic has created a new way forward for car companies and I do not ever see them going back.


Never, ever argue with an IDIOT. They will drag you to their level and then beat you with their years of experience

Dealers around here have very few trucks. a good way to find one is to go on the Ram website and spec it out with what you want and on their website there is an option that says find your truck and it will bring up all the similar trucks in your area up to a couple hundred mile radius. I ordered a 1500 Classic back in February as of the end of June it still wasn't here and I was told it would be another month for so. They happened to get a 1500 Big Horn with the gearing I needed at the end of June so I bought it instead. My neighbor ordered a new Ford F350 back in June and it still isn't here yet , he is considering the same thing selling it back for more than he paid for it if it ever gets here.

I purchased my Ram Jan of 2020, just prior to COVID and used a bonus 1k off the price offered through USAA. To insure it wasn’t worked into the price I negotiated and when I sat down with the finance guy whipped out the certificate. While they were none to happy, they honored it.
So if you are a Vet or immediate family member of one you may want to search to see if this is still offered. I believe they also have a car buying service that affords discounts and eliminates the haggling (as mentioned, haggling may be a thing in the past).

You sure it isn't a 3500? HO/Aisin not available in 2500, when I ordered my 2018 that is the way it was and still is. FWIW trucks with the Aisin trans/HO option (if 3500) have the dipstick on the drivers side, 68RE is on passenger side.

It's possible that it's a 3500.
I haven't seen the truck, I know it's a Classic version and it's the HO Cummins and Aisin trans std cab.

He said he loved the way the Aisin trans shifted, almost like it had a shift kit in it, firm/hard shifts unlike his 2019 that he traded in which he described as slipping and sliding into the next gear. laugh2

He literally got what he paid for it when he traded it in, crazy.


He has two other trucks, a 92 that's his parts runner/driver and another 92 that's restored that never gets driven.
