For some stupid reason I think I need a new Truck....My Ram is now out of warranty, 36,000 miles. Man I Love my Truck & really wanted to wait for the 2010's, but I've found this new Black CTD 2wd Mega Cab Dually Laramie.....Damn this thing is NICE & Frickin Loaded....$53,000. Msrp. What do you guys think they would take for it...?

Man that is alot of truck. I am kind of in the same boat. I want a 4th gen.. but I got my 3rd gen almost the way I want it. If I go 4th gen.. its wouldn't be a off roader.. It would be more of a street cruiser.. The entire just looks so smooth and car like.

I'd hate for you got get the black CTD and be like.. man I should have waited. But then again.. that CTD is a hell of a truck.

$36,000-$39,000. There is $12,000 factory cash on HDs and another $4000-$6000 dealer cash to play with. You wont get the dealer cash if you take the gas deal. They may not tell you about the factory cash, but it is there.

I bet you can get it for at least half of the price you posted.
Last weekend a local dealer had 3 fully loaded 08 quad cab big horns in the paper for like $16k after all the discounts and rebates. that was right at half price.

Your camper is white...........don't get a black truck and stick a white camper on it.

Do you want the megacab? Need the room? That would be the only reason I would go with it over a Gen4.

Personally, I think the megacab duallies look funny.........unless they are the stretched ones with the normal dually bed on it (8ft).

I doubt that you will get him to 1/2 price though. 53K, I would think 36 would be realistic.

I understand them Mega's have some crappy A/C and being black don't help much. But you Know nowadays your doing the dealerships a favor buying a rig like that,,,,, you ought to be able to steal the dang thing. Offer them something ridiculous and head down the road. You might hear back from them.

You guys are right...Mega's A/C sucks...and on a Black truck living in Tampa..I'm going to pass & wait like the rest of us. It's just that my two Labs wouldn't bitch so much if they had more room...



Damn Kid's........lol

I faced the 36k mile dilemma last year, and I bought; difference being I wasn't a month away from a new generation. I wouldn't totally give up on an 08 6.7 CTD QC though. You never know what's lurking around the corner between now, and September. Loose the hounds "Smithers" :D. Yes Mr. Burns:)

I was thinking about the 08 but when I thought about all of the mod that I put on my rig and that they want give me nothing for it, well also that I will have to start all over again with new payment. I think that I will wait for maybe 2010 model or better yet just drive my until it drop.

I don't see why you couldn't get about $15,000 or more taken off the sticker price. There is a dealer by me taking 40% off sticker on all 1500 quadcabs or take the gas deal and about $4000 offf sticker. I've been temped too but I think I can hold out on an '09 or '10 1500 model.

I feel your pain brother ! I was going through the same thing two weeks ago and finally just gave in. Got a screamin deal on mine, just couldn't pass it up...

Well, what I didn't say was my Truck isn't worth crap...I paid more for my Ram in 05' than this 08' would run me. I ordered my 05' with EVERY option except cab lights, Invoice was $40,000 I had no trade so with sales tax and all the yada yada it was $44,000. I used Chrysler Finance at .09% deciding to use there money & not mine. The trade isn't worth negative equity.
