My 04 Ram 1500 Quadcab 4x4 Hemi Laramie stickered at 47k my 08 Ram 2500 Hemi Megacab 4x4 Laramie stickered at 54k and my 11 F250 Lariat 6.2 with everything except sunroof stickered at 64k. The Dodges were loaded by Dodge standard but compared to the SD were bare bones as the SD has electronic locking rear diff, hill start assist, trailer sway control, stability control, traction control, Nav, DVD player heated and cooled seats off road mode you name it. Is it worth the $$$ who knows as it is all about what you want/need and are willing to pay. I got this truck 2 years old with Ford ESP bumper to bumper 0 deductable to 150,000km warranty for less than half the list new and got more than blackbook for the Megacab so it was a no brainer.

I love my 07 LBZ, no problems; except for the several dent's and ding's acquired when I have loaned it out...

You should get pretty good value in resale.

In August 2008 I bought a new 2008 GMC 2500HD gas. It was just under 30 out the door with employee pricing for all.

Today, according to KBB.com, it is work 33k. That is more than I paid for it.

But it only has 19k miles on it. The low mileage might be keeping the price up.

I will put it up for sale real soon now.

I sure hope KBB prices are right because according to them my truck is worth anywhere from 20k-26k which is pretty GOOD considering its more than 5yrs old.

I wouldn't believe KBB, according to them my truck to a private seller is worth $10,400 more than I paid for it last July. $6,000 more than I paid if I trade it in at a dealer.

KBB trade value is fairly accurate when trading toward something new. Take about 20% off when looking used.

Otherwise my general rule of thumb is expect 20-30% off KBB dealer, and 10-20% off KBB private party sale.

Used vehicles are super expensive right now. Today's 2-4 year old used cars and trucks were new in 2009-11. Remember, the car industry tanked pretty bad in 08-11 so there's not nearly enough recent year used cars so the prices are stupid high. Supply and demand. This is also bringing up the prices on older low mileage cars too.

Reality is no used vehicle is worth more than a new one. If the incentives stay strong on trucks that may even drive down the price on used trucks - why buy used when new is getting cheaper all the time?

From what I'm seeing on TV there's more incentive now than in jan when we bought ours. Maybe we should have waited...
