Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I would like to get some advice from you guys on purchasing a used truck.. it's at a high end used car dealership, they have very good reviews, and dont sound shady and are very accommodating over phone..
Car fax is clean, 1 owner. They said they took it to a ram dealer and had them go through it, all came back good and they said they will show me the work order from the dealer. All scheduled maintenance up to date.
2014 mega cab 4x4 Laramie all black..182k miles
Fully loaded, with the black out package..
In pics it looks in almost excellent condition..
The salesman did a walk around with me over the phone, and all he said there was, small rock chips on the front grill\bumper area, and around the fender flares.. said their detail shop will touch up what they can before i go see it..
They are asking $36k, but over the phone, got them down to $34k...
They are a few hours away from me, but will go see it tomorrow..
What do you guys think on that price with miles and condition?
It's in line with blue book value..
I'm in northern California, so pricing are elevated a bit...
Thanks

Dude. In this market, get off the damn internet and get it. We live in a world where gen 1’s trade between 10 and pushing 20, 2nd gens anywhere between 12 and 25 or more, 3rd gens 20 to 35. All clean and typically sub 150k miles. Gen 4’s between 25 and 45 and up since the ‘19 and newer gen 4’s trade north of 60.

If it’s clean, and I mean clean, the price isn’t bad.

Dang, I thought Cummins was the be all end all of diesels? It's pretty sad If 180k is past the "good" miles...
It is. These forums are full of doom and gloom guys. For what reason? Who knows. The same folks that think fords are the greatest thing ever and they “just bought the engine”

Sad really
