Going truck shopping...

...wish me luck.

I have to get out if a lease at the halfway point. Not sure if I'll be able to put a deal together or not.

I'm going to look at Tundra, and Ram w/ecodiesel, today, and ecoboost next week.

The Ram has really got my attention with the fuel economy people are reporting. It's just the two of us, so the payload issue might not be a problem.... gotta see the numbers.

All good vehicles, just keep an eye on the payload stickers.

I can live with less bling, actually I prefer it. I'm looking for a deal right now. Payment must not increase.

No luck at Toyota, still too much owed on the lease. The good thing is they offered about $3000 more for my trade than I expected. The bad thing is they are out of 2014s and the incentives aren't there for the 2015s.

I might have a chance with the Ram. The guy at the dealer is a friend/acquaintance of mine and called me asking questions trying to pull in more rebates.

I don't need the truck until spring, so I'm not jumping at anything. For that matter, my SUV can pull the trailer, albeit somewhat challenged.

LOL, my friend called me to say the Ram just sold and they don't have another one right now. Looks like my shopping trip will end rather unceremoniously.

Wait until spring. You'll have less owed on the lease and there will be sales on the 2015's.

Bummer. Take your time, you'll find the right one. Before buying DW's Infiniti we went to 15 different dealerships and test drove probably 30 cars before deciding on the Infiniti and then finding the right deal. Just have patience and you'll come out ahead
