That's why I drive by the dealership and look from afar. Cause as soon as I pull in and sit in the truck then play with all the gadgets and go for a test drive it always leaves me sitting in front of the finance officer signing papers.

Trouble with Rams is that they don't have nearly as good of a dealer base as Ford and General Motors. And Ram dealers are seldom been in business as long or have a business as stable as the Ford and GM dealers.

I've always been able to get a better deal on Fords and GM's because they have so many other good selling vehicles to pay the rent. Ram dealers have to charge relatively high prices on pickups and Jeeps to make up for all the "dog" cars their factory forces them to stock.

My 2003 3/4 ton diesel truck does a great job with a tuner, and I have no need to pay $40K cash difference to buy a new truck. At 120K miles, my engine just got broken in.

If you are looking at the 6.0 Fords, stay with an '06 or '07. If you go to a 6.4, try to get an '09 or '10. Earlier 6.0s could have serious problems, the '08 was the first year of the 6.4 and had radiator problems. My '09 just passed 201000 and no more problems than any normal diesel could have.
I had an '04 6.0 and an '07 6.0--both good trucks, but the '04 blew the egr/oil cooler around 125k, so needing a dually anyway, went to an '07 that was basically problem-free.
On the older KRs, keeping the leather looking nice is not an easy job.

'15 38RSSA Mobile Suites
'05 36TK3 Mobile Suites--retired but not forgotten
'17 F450--trying one more Ford
'09 F450--died, replaced with '10--retired
