Still hard to get over the new truck prices nowdays. 30,000 + dollars is alot of money for a new truck. Id like to have one but gosh dont make sense to me. Then I have to put gas in it and liscence it, Very expensive. I suppose in twenty years they will be $70000 terrible. Ill have to cut my trips down I guess. Oh the good old days of $10,000 pickups. Oh well can't even buy a used descent one for that.

My old GMC was around $9000 when my dad bought it new. His 89 was $15,000 and it it was a high end model. I think that my Ford was $19,000 new. New vehicle prices are getting very bad. The worst thing is that the value instantly drops when a new vehicle is driven off of the lot. I guess that the good thing is that used vehicles are reasonably priced, due to the volume of them out there.

It sure pays to shop around and not to forget the private ads in magazines or newspapers least you get to talk to the owner. That always helps. Ill just have to stick to a used one try to save some money.

Just an update on resale value on chevy half tons from99 on up. They claim to have the best resale value on half tons. However after reading a lot of forums on some of the troubles they have on there engines Id be very hesitant on buying an older one. I hope people realize this before buying one. Fords had there issues too but not like these G.M. engines.

hMMM

I know you could spend nearly 50,000 on a top of the line Diesel Excursion Limited 2 years ago, and now not expect to get 26 out of it if your lucky.

One more pickup that seems to hold a good resale value is the 89-93 Dodge with a Cummins. One in decent shape will sometimes bring more than a newer one in the same condition.

Granddaddy did the same thing on his Chevy diesel and is experiencing more difficulties.

Id give 32,oo0 for a ford before Id ever give 29,000 for a dodge. They got those things way overpriced for what you get.

________________________

I'd have to disagree here, you get quite a bit for 29,000.00 with a Ram with Cummins diesel engine/ NV5600 six speed, just go over to the 2004' F150 forum , some of those guys have paid nearly 40,000.00 for a friggen half ton truck with gasoline engine! Also Dodge has an actually useable 4 door extended cab (Quad Cab). All four doors open the same way, and it's a
huge improvement over Ford's dated and inconvenient Super Cab design.
For 29,000.00 thats an awesome deal on a loaded diesel truck. All in all,
I've seen many worse ways you can spend a buck.

Dodge's Quad Cab is too small. They need to make up their minds, and actually make a real crew cab. I'm 6'6" and I found it next to impossible to get in the back of the Dodge. The Ford Super Cab was about the same size, but the difference was the Ford seats can move forward more to where I could get more comfortable. The Super Crew already is larger than the Dodge 1/2 Crew Cab.

I agree with you totally MW95F250. It is way to small for me. If they were going to do it right they should have made it longer. One big reason Dodge will never outsell ford in the H.D. market. Fords big seller is the C.C. superduty. If thats dodges answer to the crewcab its a joke. Ford blows dodge away on the bodystyle. Its not even close. Dodges hemi and cummins party is coming to an end. The blue oval crowd will win out like it has for the last zillion years.

Aberdeen is probably the best Chrysler dealer in SD. The prices for new pickups always seem to be pretty low there compared to other places. I think that they advertise vehicles for the lowest possible price that they can take. Sioux Falls Ford is the same way.

Hey MJD sorry about that last post its just that blue blood in me again. Dont take what I say personally its not against you or anybody else. Personally I would be kind of offended if anybody run down ford the way I do dodge. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
