I'm glad he wrote the information for everybody. I personally have a copy that I keep with all my other information about my Bee.

One of the other members said they were not making tags.

I do not believe this is true. Because of my own case and because the sequential numbers are put on the tags as needed. Case in point my tag had no number. Second tag came with the numbers.

I'm still at a loss when you look to see the dates of production. Somebody has to bee made the same month as mine but yet the numbers are so far apart. I think the number was 2000 something compared to 28. It's almost like they'd put their hand in a bag and pulled out a tag. Never heard any explanation for this.

I'm glad my experience and information was useful.

Take care

Steve sequential number 0028

Another note, Only 4x4's were sold in Canada for the Bee's. Daytona's came in 4 and 2 Wheel Drive.

I would like to jump in here and make one comment.
Although they never left the factory with leather, is was an
Option installed by the dealer. Here's the kicker!

Dodge offered an "Offical" Leather Option to the dealer, a very high cost.
(as a dealer parts guy at the time, I can state this as true)

Some dealers used 'aftermarket' providers.

Look at for the stiched emblem; only Dodge could use it at the time.

Never the less; it does NOT make the truck any less of a Bee
A True Bee is a true bee, with or without leather.

This just goes to say also about the price of the Bee I got mine in March 2004 #1948 for less that 23,000 dollars I got a manufacturer discount of 3.500 dollars and a dealership discount of 3,500 dollars financed by Chrysler. I have been doing business with this dealership for a long time. Oh yea it is paid for and runs like a bat out of hell still have less than 50,000 miles and is still under warranty Very Happy

When I bought my new Bee in 2005, a 2WD, next to it, new, was a
4WD, this is in PA.
We have a quad cab, yellow, with a Rumble B sticker on the back, around here. Wonder if he thinks it's real.

This is an excellent post. To bad it wasn't here in 2004.

Confused I recently joined Rumblebee.org and found your post very interesting and helpful. I cannot see any of the links that you included with your post. I am particularly interested in the link you posted from RumbleRocker at limitedmopars.com. Anyone know what the problem might be? I would appreciate.

I purchased a second swarm bee #0381 aboutone month ago, however, because this truck was brought in from the USA I'm not finding a lot of info
rmation about my truck in Canada and of course certain privacy laws limit some research. I'm also trying to find out exactly how many Bees were produced. We were told about 8700 between 2004 and 2005 (3700 in 04 and 5000 in 05), however a friend of ours just bought a 2nd swarm as well and his is numbered in the high 5 thousands????Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thks

the reason you cant follow the link is limitedmopars site is gone, this thread is many years old many things are bound to be out of date

If you read the post, you will see there are no actual production numbers, the closest dodge will admit to is roughly 6000 in each of the 2 production years.

not sure I understand what you are saying. I got the embroidered bee on my leather seats back in 2004 for my bee.

was not an "official dealer option", bought it aftermarket.

Thank you to the Hive for all your responses. I have found 2 in my area that are in my price range. One is very sharp with some add on's but does not have the black stripe on the rear quater panel. # on the plauqe is 2535. The other is your basic Bee with no add on's but i can't make out the #s on the plauqe. I was looking at the carfax report on the 2nd Bee i just mentioned and there is a number for the dealership where it was purchaced new. do ya'll think i could call them. give them the VIN# and see if they could give me some info on the truck being real or not.

Hello, new here , Hope to make some friends , However with my question may make a few non- friends as I'm reading on here about the colors . I recently purchased an 05' Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4x4 at an auction I went to . The truck was a repo and the motor was knocking badly .I got the truck for a fare price , However I had to wait till all the legal title work was done and paperwork came back in order to get it legal , So I just parked it and waited . The vehicle was purchased new by a couple that had recently went thru a divorce thus the repo . It was brought to my attention at the place of finance that the VIN # indicated that the truck had what they called a "Rumble Bee package" , Me not being familiar with the yellow and black didnt think twice about it , I figured it was like a sport package similiar to the towing packages Im use to getting . Upon researching the RB online everywhere I look Im reading only yellow and black . So I'll tell ya what Ive got and you tell me please. The truck is Red , The finance company and my Ins company tells me it has the "RB" package which I had no clue if it was or wasnt , didnt matter. The interior is all black leather except for the face shield on the radio area which is factory molded Red as well as a factory molded Red stripe on each door . NOW...There are no decals on this truck except for the 5.7 Hemi up front on the fenders , However there is a paper we found in the booklet along with all the other papers where it was purchased new from the dealer . The paper is a dealer pre-check list and is initialed by the original purchasers , One of the subjects is decals , After the decals subject on the list it states that the buyer basically wanted the truck before the decals were able to be applied ....doesnt say what decals , just says decals . After further research ( I called the original owners ex wife) , She told me that the truck was special ordered by her "now not so rich husband" lol...thats a funny , you can lol now ...Anyway this guy special ordered this truck from the dealership and was Irate for months waiting on it and when it finally hit the dealership he had to have it that day . She stated she didnt know anything about what a RB was but knew that he paid a bunch extra for options that she told him at the time he didnt need . I dont know , Ive owned 3 Dodge Ram 1500 and my prior 2 didnt have the colored faceplate or the colored stripe on the doors ??????++++
And another thing , it does have a tag on it inside that has four numbers on it , and they also match the last 4 of the VIN I believe ???

Welcome to the HIVE my friend.
I believe the former owner was not telling you the truth.
If you have a quad cab, it's not a Rumble Bee.
They only came in the regular cab version and came in the colors Solar Yellow and Black with the accent stripe on the rear of the bed.
No special orders were ever made for these trucks.
What you have is what we refer to on the site as a Wanna-Bee.
A lot of folks try to create their own version of the Bee but to no avail, it's nothing more than a fake.
Sorry to burst your bubble my friend.
