I'm looking to make the switch from my 2013 F150 crew cab to a new Rebel. This would be my first Mopar since I've had Ford trucks since I started driving 13 years ago. I built it online and would have it built from the factory so with a fleet deal I'd be waiting about 24 weeks for it.

Did you order a fully loaded Rebel with everything? How much did you end up paying with the fleet deal?
It would be about 46K with the fleet price and our incentive through our hvac manufacture. I know my brother in-law got a similar deal through CSX with his GMC so if you work for some of the bigger companies you can get those good deals. The down side to the fleet deals are it takes 6 months to build and you can't do sh*t to them. Ford takes about 10-12 weeks so I was surprised dodge was around 24 weeks. From what I know about the fleet program is you need a minimum of 20 vehicles and you don't get any break if you pick it up off the lot.

That's actually really disappointing to hear. What if you need to make certain modifications for your field of work ??

I'm more sales now so I don't need too much done to it. I have a tool box in my bed now that I'm hoping the stuff will fit into the ram boxes. Right now I have about 5' between the box and the tail gate so I should get a little more room so I can put one of those little giant ladders in the bed to cover me on an A frame ladder or extension ladder.

It works and I have my common tool back at the back so to fit everything in the rambox I'm going to have to take the stuff I really don't use out so there's going to be some trial and error for getting stuff in there.

In Canada you can get fleet pricing for a single RAM off the lot. I'm sure its because of the smaller market, you (or your employer) just have to be a member of any recognized commercial association.

My Rebel was just over $40k with the canadian fleet pricing and they had the one I wanted at a dealer in the same area code so I only had to wait 3 days.

I hope you don't have to wait 24 weeks... thats a long time to wait for a new toy!

You can't do anything to a Rebel bought under a fleet deal? Not even running boards?
not much and you can do running boards. I wasn't ordering them from the factory since I was going to see how it was on the low setting for getting in a out, if i needed a step I'd do the power steps again.

I got a even better deal on the F150 but things have gone up so the deal is just as good but the base price is 5K higher. It's going to be a huge difference between Fox 2.5" coil overs and raptor 2.5" IBP rear shocks to air bags and Bilsteins. I had procomp shocks on the truck while the foxes were getting serviced and it was night and day difference in the ride and hopefully with the air bags and 5 link rear it will ride better than the ford does stock.

I'm new to the forums, too. Ordered my 2017 on July 13. It went to D1 status a couple of weeks ago. Still D1 today. I ordered red two-tone, nearly completely loaded. Left off the giant towing mirrors and trailer brake control. I had a 2012 Big Horn. When my wife got a new Charger and it was loaded to the gills with all the latest electronics and moon roof and such, I decided it was time to upgrade.

Same as you, now: "Truck building. Please wait..."

That's good they're building it now or they say there starting too because with a fleet truck I get put way down the list so orders like yours get done before hand.

My fleet manager gave me a little update since the F150 is going out kicking and screaming since now my rear defroster is acting up. They have a target production week of 10/31/16 but it could be built before, during or after. I'm not getting my hopes up till it shows up but it's nice to know they have a date, whether or not they hold to that date will be a mystery.
