Need some advice:Just in 08 6.4 at my dealer

My local ford dealer just got in an hour ago a 2008 6.4 crew cab 4x4 It just so happened that I just call them up today just to see if by chance they got 1 in today, so I'm heading up to see if the 08 they just got is the one I want.
ITS a solid black F250 crew cab,4x4 electronic shift,18''wheels,sunroof,power reare window,bench with brown leather,block heater,sirus stereo,tow command,uplifters,373 gear
Sticker is 51,000
How much can they really sell me it for?
Thanks

Thanks.

The salesman is calling me back .Hes going back to the service dept to see the truck and call me back to tell me if it has FX4;I think FX4 comes on lariats not sure though.

It does not have the navigation which I really wanted but it does have that solid black that I wanted(lucky for me) and I wanted the sunroof instead of the rear dvd I'll just put dvd's in if I get the truck.It has that tailgate step and the extender.

I really wanted a nav though..

I'm driving an 1hour in a half to look and talk so I'm taking my truck for trade in talk but I woould like to know what a 51,000 sticker could be bought for cash no trade in and then I'll figure my trade in

OK I'm leaving now I'll take some pictures for ya.

He did call back and tell me it does have the navigation system but does not have FX4 .

He said the first person to get there has the first chance at buying the truck.

Thats kida crappy because I've been there for the past 4months 5 times and the manager said they would call me and I would be first in line.

OK anyway I'm driving up there so talk at yaw later ..

Safe guess.......neighborhood of 3-4K

My 450 MSRP was 56k - invoice 52k.

The FX4 is a standalone trim on the 08's. You can't get it with any other trim. From what I have read it is roughly equivalent to the Lariat with the off road package. I am paying about $5,000 under MSRP for my F-350 that is on order.

I'm back and I have pictures;i'll post here in a minute..

Don't be a hater but there was not an agreeable deal.The dealer would not sell the truck below the msrp and to top it off they wanted to only aloow me 12,200 for my 2001 f350 dually lariat with 60,000 miles.I mean come on.Steal my truck below book and make me pay msrp.53,900 for a f250 srw diesel ouch;how bout 43-46k that to me seems high for an f250 lariat.

Anyways,I liked the truck.The inside is top notch bad to the bone.One thing I seen real quickly is the factory black paint had orange peel ya know what I mean when a painted vehicle has not been wet sanded 100percent done.The other letdown was that this truck felt too spongy while test driving it.It needs heavyfirmer suspension I think.

The truck is very nimble in a good way when turning around the parking lot and when shifting into drive and reverse the tranny shifts in and out with no arm hassle.The tranny seeemed somewhat sloppy when I accelerated tthrough the gears;it did have some hesitation before shifting.The diesel is as smooth as a new diesel could ever be I think but it did not really feel that impressive I think a V10 might be on my order list now.

The audiophile stereo system thumps hard and is crystal clear.

The seats felt very comfortable and the gauges are awesome except the turbo boost pegs out at only 4.

I am upset that the headlights are just plain ugly and too long vertically and it makes the truck look lame.

Maybe with more lift its appearance could start looking more tuff and pre-superduty like.

Overall I liked the truck but the 53,000 price tag in my opinion is too much money for the total truck pkg'd F250

I think a V10 priced accordingly would be the winning ticket for alot of guys.

I kinda am leaning towards an F450 6.4 with 4.88m as being the real mc coy..
Don't be a hater but i liked the truck but was kinda dissapointed overall.The 1 thing that is over the top awesome is the interior pkg with nav,sunroof,gauges,comfort and color coordination.
At 53,000 I would just choose to be more satisfied with ainting up for a F450 or paying less for an F250 v10 with 430's.
PICTURES WILL BE COMING UP HOPEFULLY..

only thing i am sure oif is that most guys that have to have the latest and greatest wil buy them reguardless.. but the new emissions caused this engine to cost alot of dough and the expected diesel/transmission option was $8500 not the 5K we are used to.. we got in 2 tonight and i will be doing one of the PDI's tommorrow afternoon.. I will post the likes. I already know that just about any service will require a cab off!!

the front end looks so funny....i really like the interior and options but i wish they would have done a complete ground up change because it still looks like the 05-07 in so many ways...o well its still a great looking truck!!
