I stopped by my local dealer Thursday evening, the one I have bought 4 trucks from. I test drove an 03 3500 4X4 DRW. I liked the truck, and thought about trading. <br><br>Like I said, I only thought about trading. The dealer and NADA book says the trade-in value of my 2001 3500 DRW with 56K miles, is $20,000. <br><br>The dealer wanted $14,000 difference. I said, I don't think so!<br>I know we lose alot on new vehicles, but this is rediculus. If it were not for the $2500 rebate and $500 for Farm Bureau Insurance, it would be $17,000 difference. <br><br>I'll drive mine till the wheels fall off. ;D
