Picked up my 1500 limited with level 1 package last week and noticed it doesn't come with cargo cam like the 2500 does ... Does anyone know if the cargo cam would have been in the trailer tow package for the 1500 and if there's an easy way to add (is the wiring in there already to hook up or would I need to rewire?).

The cargo cam isn't on the 1500. The camera up there like I have on my 1500 comes with the tech package and it's for the digital rear view mirror.

Since the purpose of that camera is to help attach a gooseneck trailer it probably wouldn't make much sense to include it on a 1500.

Well, that's a bummer. The cargo camera is something I really wanted on my truck so I could see in the bed while the bed cover is flipped up (cannot see anything in the back when it's up). When I ordered my 2022 1500 Laramie, I included the Technology Group and was told by the sales person that the cargo camera is part of that group. I even sent another email to confirm that the cargo camera will be on my truck, and they confirmed that it will be. I guess I'll wait until the truck comes in to say anything. I'm really hoping it's on there, but it's not looking like it will be. I know that Ram information is flaky, at best, so maybe the sales person was just not properly informed. Fingers crossed.

Unfortunately, sales people tend to not know very much about what they are selling, at least from what I've seen in my time buying 4 rams over the years. More of a "oh you want that, sure it'll have that" scenario. I've tested it before when buying used, asking things like what gears it had, indicating I wanted a certain gear ratio. They would just tell me that's what it had, contrary to the build sheet saying otherwise.

Always verify for yourself, or just come here and get a quick and straight answer.

As someone who has the tech package, I believe you will be disappointed to find your truck will not have a cargo cam. Unless that changed for 2022, but I've seen zero mention of it whatsoever so I highly doubt that has changed.

I spoke with the sales manager of my local Ram dealer yesterday and was ready to order a Limited if it was available in Flame red like on Ram truck build website; he brought up the dealer connect build site on his computer and was surprised to see a restriction on both Hemi engines and diesel engine for the Limited & Rebel (my second choice) trims. He did not know how long the restrictions would be in place. I don't know about the other trims. I wonder if this has anything to do with the Inline turbo 6 engine; on wagoneerforums.org, a guy posted that when he ordered a Grand Wagoneer Series III, the standard 6.4L Hemi engine for the GW was not allowed to order; he had to pay a $2000.00 engine upcharge for the Inline6 before the order would be accepted.
Did you hear anything else about this? I didnt realize flame red was available on the limited, if that is the case it might push me over the edge! Is it exclusive to the RED package? I know it doesnt show up that way on the ram truck configurator, but I wonder if that is why it was restricted?

It's not on my 2022, so unless it's busted, it doesn't exist :p

I'm pretty sure it was just an error on the build site, flame red has been an option on other trim levels for a long time ( at least since 2013, possibly before) but has never been an option on the longhorn or limited. Just delmonico red, makes sense for the more "subdued" luxury look, same way we can get patriot blue but not the brighter/louder blue streak or hydro blue.

I've had a flame red sport, delmonico red longhorn and now a patriot blue longhorn. They are all great in my view, I don't think you can go wrong.

Yeah, seems like all of those color options are "subdued" luxury indeed. Every time I look at mine I think the same thing. Granted, I would have opted for Timberline Green Pearl if they offered it. 😛

I hear ya! There are definitely a few colors offered on other trims that I would love to see on the upper trims. I am very happy with the patriot blue but if the two tone patriot blue over brown was available (like it was for 2019s) I would have ordered that instead without any hesitation. I loooove the way that looked, but sadly hasn't been an option since 2019 as far as I can tell.

On that note, I'd love to see more two tone options in general as well.

Just placed an order for a limited now. We'll see if that goes through the pipes faster since my laramie is stalled out...

I believe the 33 gallon tank may now be standard with the 6'4" bed. I ordered in December and added it as an option, WS came out last weekend and says No Charge for the 33.

That sure is interesting....Im curious what will happen if the Laramie shows up first and if it will have it.

So my Rebel has finally progressed to shipping status (with no date) after sitting in final inspection status for 7 weeks! Still cant pull up a window sticker - anyone know when this should be visible?
