^^^^ Yup order a new 2022 GMC 3500. The 2500 is pretty much identical other than it has no overload springs and therefore can only hand about half the payload.

My local dealer has five 3/4 tons. All LTZs, 4 wheelers and….white. No diesels. All are crew cabs. Order one exactly as you choose. And six 1500s. In de old days they would have 30 1500s.

Does the chip shortage affect diesel trucks? I see those on the lots, few gas ones. What does that particular chip control?

Its not a single chip shortage - its a shortage of chips coming from China. It's effecting all industries that manufacture something with semiconductors in them. I work in an industry not related to car manufacturing and lead times are 120 days to 6 months or longer. Just heard a generator on a project is not supposed to arrive until mid 2022...

what is the ride like in a 3500? Unloaded? Don't want to spend $80G and get beat to death while driving [emoticon]

The HD pickup trucks are riding noticeably better …. I believe a 1500 rides considerably nicer than a 3500 but I don’t think you’d notice a difference going from a 2500 to a 3500 SRW. I run 80 psi air pressure front and back loaded and empty and I’m comfortable but I’m not used to riding in a car.

If you build one on their website it will lead you to available on the lots. Not much there but I'm looking to order a new 2500 gas next year,so I'm keeping an eye on things too. I'm hoping the gas will get the ten speed for 2023.

When this backlog of trucks hits the lots, I don't think the dealers are going to be offering big discounts. That won't happen until the supply is stable for some time and is proven to meet or exceed demand.

As for Ram trucks I sure as heck wouldn't want one that's been setting on some desert lot in Mexico and having to finish the job in the desert heat.

So... is there any negotiating when you order a truck?
