    Would you guys buy a new personal truck now or wait until spring? I'm not going to plow with it and don't really need it right now, but I do want it. I have to work load so its not like I'm buying it on a dream......just not sure if I should wait or not.

    I plan on buying soon. Prices are ridiculously cheap right now. Got a price of $30,998 for a 2008 Dodge 3500 quad cab diesel yesterday. I know it's a year old already but it still has no miles and full warranty. Pretty good if you ask me.

    I would buy in april or may and get an 08 leftover. You should be able to get a sick deal on whatever you get. I would also wait till after winter because I am sure you really dont want to risk some bozo sliding into you during a snow storm becuase they have no clue how to drive......

    There are tremendous buying opportunities right now for new vehicles. Whether or not the manufacturer you choose will still be in business in the spring is something to consider.

    This would be a good question for your accountant, as far as tax purposes go...

    Oh yeah! You shouldn't be paying more than 30k for that now.

    Yah, no one here is really motivated to sell. They would rather let them sit then "loose money" as they claim. lol I think I'll offer $32k and see what he says. Its got every option but leather and is chromed up a bit too.

    ehhh, this one is black, has more options, short bed and has 18k less miles. also my dad is wanting to take over payments on the 07' because you can't find any other 5.9Ls out there and he loves the color.

    So if anyone knows of a dodge dealership with a LARAMIE package 2008 2500 diesel in BLACK for around $33k PLEASE PM me……...within reasonable distance.
