How much was the sticker?

How much was the truck itself after haggling without the trade-in???

Very true.. I think as long as you like the truck what does it matter... I mean unless they gave you $400 then that's another story!!!

Congrats...

Sounds about right, I don't think you got ripped.

it has the thunder road pakage quad cab 2wd and cloth seats. i paid 31290 for it

Sounds a tad high for a 2wd........I've seen some 2007 4wd's in the $33k range after rebates and discounts.

Seems like a good price for the truck. I think they should have given you more for your trade though. But, I don't know the condition. Good luck and enjoy.

Actually, this is what I say. Normally though I'd ask someone before buying, not after. However to me I don't think you did get ripped, I think you could have talked them down more, but thats there is probably your average selling price. Always haggle is my thoughts. And NEVER buy the same day. In fact I like to look at something on a thursday or friday, and think about it over the weekend. If its still there monday, there is a better possiblity I'm going to go for it. And plus, by getting a night or two of sleep on it, I can be completely whatever-might-distract-my-thoughts. Be it, tired, excited for the purchase, drunk, or otherwise.

Just my two and a half bits.

i appreciate it, i just wanted some reasurance. i pulled a trailer with 7500 lbs of stone on it up and down some hills near greenville, sc. today and it did great i love the truck and i dont have to worry about stations that dont carry ulsd. i just asked the dealer what i could get the 6.7 auto for and he said about 3 grand more. im happy though i just need a smarty now.

A little too high for a 2wd especially if they already hosed you on a trade.

i think the sticker was about 38 not sure. they sold it to me for a little over 31kSo, sticker was 38, you paid 31. Did your trade-in bring the price of the 07 down to the 31 or did you deal to 31 and the trade in brought it further down to the 25k area?

What did you trade in?

My question to you is that $31290 what you paid before the trade or after the trade. If it was after, you got hosed big time. If it was before you only got hosed a little. I can't comment on the trade in value of your previous vehicle since I don't know what it is.

i traded my 99 with 182k miles and no a/c in south carolina. the wholesalers wont even buy it it is still siting at the lot. i paid 31 and change out the door for the truck less the 6500 they gave me for my trade. i owe about 25 total now. i hate payments!
