So I just recently joined since I'm in the market to purchase my first diesel truck which will be a Ram 2500. I currently have the opportunity to pick up a 2013 Ram 2500 Laramie mega cab 4x4 with all the bells and whistles including winter package and sunroof for $51000. I just saw that the 2014 will have the rear coil multilink suspension. Nice but will the ride quality be that noticeable after you lift the truck and run 37" tires? Because that's what I plan on doing. I used to have a Nissan Titan with a 5" lift block in the rear with FOX remote reservoir shocks on stock leafs and it actually rode pretty decent. I'm debating to wait or not wait for the 2014. I figure they won't have any major price breaks or discounts till at least this time next year. So I figure I would be paying around $62-64k for the same package and options in a 2014. I'm thinking the $51k for the fully loaded 13 is a pretty decent deal. What do you fellas think?
What was the original sticker price on the truck? I'd be looking at least $10k off the sticker to start making a deal. The '14s are knocking on dealers' doors so make a good deal and keep that in mind because you won't get that kind of deal on a '14 for a while. I'm happy with my '13, now does the '14 sound enticing? Yes, but like others said it will take some time for the aftermarket world to catch up to the new suspension and I'm not sure I want to be a guinea pig for Ram either. You have to look at the amount of time it's taking for them to get around to the new suspension on the 3500s.
