Tim: another thought for you is to take your truck over to CarMax in Reno and have them appraise it. They may say we won't touch it, or (hopefully) they give you a price they'd pay you for the truck. Then you take that with you to a different dealer (I still highly recommend contacting my guy in Roseville). You whittle them down to bare bones on the new truck, then ask them to appraise your current one -- in your pocket is what their honest number should come back near. If not see if they will match it and if they don't and you don't want to hassle selling it yourself, take the old truck to CarMax and walk out with a check...

Good luck my friend,
Scott

It's a good deal if the customer thinks it's a good deal.

Still on the fence on what to do?

Yeah, back on the fence. I was all fired up to pull the trigger for a new rig, till that guy kicked me in the stomach. Kinda lost the passion for a while. I'm really not in too big of a hurry, I suppose. I think I really "wanted" a new truck more than I "needed" a new truck. The 05 continues to do everything I need it to do. I figure that I'll just hang on the fence for a bit to see if something pops up that is meant to be... apparently, Jones West Ford wasn't. The way I figure it, if my truck finally does take the final plunge, then I wouldn't be out too much if I have to walk away from it. So trading in now really doesn't do much good at this point. We'll see. Maybe after I get my gumption up I'll check out that dealership you recommended. Thanks for the support buddy.
