I paid just under $32K for my 2013 F150 SCrew 3.5L EB 5.5' bed 4x4 XLT (302A with rear view camera, sliding rear glass, IBC, chrome package, etc.), tow mirrors(dealer added), 3.55 EL rear axle, 20" wheels. If my truck hadn't had the 20's and had the 301A package, and no tow mirrors, I could have come in at under $30K. Now, the 2015's are a little more expensive and the rebates nowhere near as good. In my area, you can get one setup like mine for ~$38K. About the same price as a similarly equipped F250 with the gas engine.

The terms 1/2 ton, 3/4 ton and 1 ton are meaningless now. "1/2 ton" payloads range from ~900 pounds to over 3K depending upon configuration. 3/4 tons range from ~1500 to probably over 4K. My Dad has a 2007 Ford Ranger that has a listed payload of over 1200 pounds- 30%+ over what some 1/2 tons list as capacity. Of course, some of us think those numbers have a lot more to do with registration requirements, warranty issues, marketing and lawyers than true capability, but.....

You should be able to buy a car anywhere in the US and then pay the taxes when you register it in Cali???

Once again, rebates are currently only $2250 if you finance with FMCC. I had $7500 when I bought mine. They probably won't get that aggressive for a while on the new body style, though. I would bet that all trucks are higher in your area, so a similarly equipped F250 gas would probably be similarly priced.

I paid $46K for my Ram 2500 last July. It's a Lone Star package (slightly dolled-up SLT). MSRP was almost $58K but I get almost the employee price through a program where I work... no haggling. The only haggling is on a trade-in price if you go that way. My '11 F-150 cost me $27K through the same program and I got $21K for it on trade with 59K miles on it... so it wasn't so bad. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Well after all your help on here bought me a new truck. Picking up a 2015 2500 duramax on Saturday (putting on the tow mirrors and line-x). Thank you all for your insight, but keep it coming, I now have a diesel to learn all about...

No pics yet, but here's the link to the truck at the dealership:

Great choice! You will love driving that thing on the hills. If you ever have a question about your truck, I recommend visiting Duramaxforum.com. There is a great group of knowledgable people on there.

NICE!!! You'll just love it.

ps You need to add running boards so your DW can climb in for the ride.
