I tried to buy a Chevy 2500 Diesel but everywhere I went the Chevy was about $3k more than the Ram. The promotion on RAM was better than the Chevy too.

Camera is nice. I am still getting used to the perspective of the camera on my hitch. I found a piece of scrap wood on the ball lets me know when I am right under the tongue (gets knocked off). I do think my old tow mirrors on the 1500 gave me a wider field of view than these power folders but over all very happy/

All you old timers are going to laugh but we got these when we had our TT but still use them on our 5er. With that fold up cover it's hard to see the hitch and this just makes really easy to line up. They are held on by magnet and when falls forward we hooked or close to it... My new 5er doesn't have that mirror

Hitching a TT my backup camera has a 'Zoom Button' that zooms in the hitch and ball. I just discovered that the other day.

Gee, what a surprise. Pay your people less, you can sell your product for less.

Chrysler has lowest per-worker labor costs

I guess it depends on where you live. Your 2011 gas may fetch where I live 20k on a real good day. My bet it would take you a long time to find a buyer! Same truck in a diesel, high 30s and gone in 72hrs.

I'm not really sure what this has to do with the price difference. Signed deal on my truck was $34k new off the lot... I was being generous with my 20k figure since even at assuming you could negotiate the F250 down to $60k its really a $26k difference. Not including Tax ect...
