98 Ram 1500 4x4
So I checked out a 98 today with the 5.9 magnum. The truck was sweet and has barely over 100k miles on it. Dealer's asking price was $9k. They dropped it to 8400 by me just requesting more info online. That is $1000 lower than kbb suggested retail value but still above their private party value and still 1400 above nada clean value. It's a good deal based on kbb, but still a 16 year old truck. What do you guys think about that? Trade in values show around 5k, so the dealer must have more room to come down on price, right?

with just over a 100k i would push more into the mid sevens for price, but do your research find out how long it has been there any accidents. try to find any little dings or dents and call them out on it, most importantly make it seem that you dont have to have it or like it alot, when they see your eyes light up from it your going to get hurt. if at all possible bargain with cash offers and if they dont oblige dont be afraid to walk away stating you have another one your looking at, also realize that you will get terrible mileage with this as well hope you dont live far away like i do

Well this dealer knows the deal. If they ever want to see me again with money in my hand they should call me with a better price
