Build time can vary dramatically depending on time of year, options selected, parts availability, etc. The best answer to the question is it will probably take 12 weeks. You'll likely turn out to be happily surprised but if you set your mind to 12 weeks you probably won't be too disappointed.
I ordered mine 4/23/10, it was completed and shipped 5/13 and, after an abnormal shipping delay, it was delivered 6/4.
2010 RAM 1500 4x4 Sport, Deep Water Blue, leather, trailer brake controller, side steps, 3.92, HEMI, more...
Location: North Aurora, Il - 40 miles west of Chicago
I ordered mine on Nov 1, 2010, order placed and confirmed by Chrysler the next day. Estimated ship date was Dec 22. Actual ship date from Michigan was Dec 15. Vehicle arrived in NM Dec 24th, arrived at Dealer on Dec 31 in Farmington. I took delivery on Jan 6....
Shortly after my order was placed with Chrysler, they issued new "approximate" delivery dates of about 90 days. (When my order was accepted, the est was 60 days.)
Your dealer is not being truthful - Chrysler issues the probable build date almost immediately after accepting the order. In my case, it was built about 7 days before the expected build date..
