i have a 08 quad cab short bed laramie 2500 in white that i'm thinking about selling. It has navigation, leather seats, 4x4 basicly every option from factory except sunroof. Aftermarket i have 5" straight pipe into 7" stacks with badp module, also chrome door and tailgate handle covers. I am not trying to sell the truck as of right now as i would have posted in the classified section, i just want to know what u guys think i will get out of the truck. btw it has 8000 miles and i paid $52,500 only 3 months ago

The money you would loose on it would buy a hell of a lot of diesel, even at 5 bucks a gallon. If you got 35,000 for it that's a 17,500 dollar hit. That's 3500 gallons of fuel at 5 bucks a gallon.

Just keep it, b/c there's more new mods coming out everyday!

If it's paid for...I'd keep it!!!

If not...take Larry The Cable Guy's words of wisdom...

"I believe...sometimes you gotta wreck the truck...to make the payment."

Of course, if you got really good insurance...it could have a teeny-tiny almost microscopic exposed hot-wire...that caused an "electrical fire"...and you could get your money back.


However...I'm NOT suggesting anything...wink, wink.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would say its worth about $259.37...do you except pay-pal? Just kidding, sounds like a killer truck. Check comparable valued trucks on Autotrader.

lol i know i would be taking a hit but gas is killing me, plus i've seen a 600 rwhp lightning i've got my eye on. I know there are more mods coming out for these things but its hard to even afford a programmer in my situation hence the reason i don't have one. If i get $35,000 i would be semi happy.

You think that lightning will be any cheaper to drive? 8 MPG doesn't seem like a deal to me :D

Yeah, I'm with RAM3500, and ATC, on this one...

Agree with RAM3500...you'd have to change your name!!! Otherwise, that would just be misleading, and a lie...especially if you get that "DORF: Thunder"...or was that the "FROD: Barely-Any-Static-Electricity"???

I can't remember what it's called...

...But I know I rolled one up, and smoked his a$$ like a joint, one time in my '96 F-250 PowerChoke 5-spd. 4x4, w/ 37" tires!!!

He, couldn't even see his lane, much less the red-light, from my "black-cloud"!!!

Hahahaha!!!!



***And agree with ATC...

...Just keep it!!! Why not???

ALSO...like national777 said: You HAVE to run super-unleaded (91-Octane...minimum!!! I'd reccomend 93.5, or higher to keep your valves and pistons cleaner.), for it to run right...and that crap costs almost as much as diesel does!!!

52000? Wow thats alot, I was looking at a 2500 for a few grand under 40k, it wasn't fully loaded but it was more loaded than the mega I got. Like most have already said, the lightning isn't going to be any cheaper to drive, I think it would cost more(its a ford, its going to break).

I got my 05 Laramie last year, Loaded except Nav. and a sunroof. It even has suade inserts in the leather, nice.... I think the sticker was $48k and some change. It only had 14000 miles on it and I picked it up for $29500. You WILL lose lots-O-money.:$: Like everyone before me said, especcially if you get that there Ford. Besides Diesel fuel is going to come down right? :pray: I mean it has to. Right? :(

How ever you look at you are going to take a huge hit on it. My guess you might get 30k for it. If you are lucky. I have already seen guys on here that have paid high 30k's for there truck and only get offered 18 ro 19k for it. it was only a few months old.

Since you are going to take a huge hit on it. you might as well spend the 10k dollars from IPD and turn your truck into a 5.9 ECM and have 600hp at the wheels. not only that Shawn said that you should she around 22 mgp on the highway with that kit.

That kit has everything, ECM, wiring harness, Turbo, Manifold, Cam, Exhaust, and a bunch of other stuff.
