My dealer told me that DC said this was the only year for RAM SRT trucks and they were not going to make them anymore.

I find that very hard to believe especially with all of the orders for them that they can not meet. Also have heard rumor of extra cab, auto etc. Can anyone confirm this either way ??

Maybe it's the only year He can get them, I have aHARD time beliving they would cut production, considering I've read the same as you on future models
and the fact they can't meet demand

The only reason they cant meet demand is because of the engine. Everything else can be assembled and easily attained. But its those darn Viper engines they cant pump out of a factory quick enough. Oh well, I guess thats what makes them so cool. Not everybody and their mothers drives one :D

The only reason there are a lot on ebay is because people and dealers are trying to make a few bucks.

I was just told by a Dodge guy that a lot of it has to do with fuel consuption based on vehicles sales. i.e. The more neon sales they have the more room they have to offer high performance vehicles. I guess there is some govermental formula that they have to abide by.

So I don't know if they will make them again but this is a factor they have to consider.

that formula has been around since late 70s and they still got us our Performance trucks that equal the Muscle cars of late 60s-early 70s
Granted there were times when you couldn't be guranteed a Big block for your truck would be optional until July/Aug. but, we also had lines over an hour long to get gas.

The true problem is every manufacturer has very profitable gas hungry SUVs flooding the showrooms , so in some ways us performance enthusiest will take it in the rear, again,(Rumble bee, etc.) so they can make thier billions ,but again, I doubt they will stop production. It may get cut back though

SUVs are selling like hotcakes if anyone hasn't noticed. I don't know it will last but folks I had talked to here in Cali, just don't care about gasoline prices when purchasing a new 04 model.

In regards to future production: I would say yes. It maybe a problem with another model year production due to powertrain output and marketing demands.

However, the latest mods being done with that powertrain was shown for those who know what to look for in the Carbon Viper that was shown at last year SEMA. I didn't care for the actual car but what was the powertrain output and the amount onboard test sensors.

I can see that in cali, but down here in ga. People arent use to paying almost $2 a gallon for gas. Alot of people I know said they will buy a 4banger to take to work and just drive there gas guzzlers on the weekends or on long trips.
