Ok so this weekend we were playing around online and found two 2013 Laramie Longhorns within the state that are almost perfect for what I am looking for (4 corner Air, 8 speed, Deep Cherry with the Black/Cattle interior) they also threw in a sunroof (not needed in the desert but ok) and they had the manual folding mirrors, and were 4x4 (I am looking at the 2014 with 4x2)

Now the website from the dealer has these listed at 49k, but had them as low as 41k in July.

My thoughts are wait for the 2014 as it is only a couple thousand more MSRP.

But how low are they willing to go to liquidate the 2013 from inventory is my question because if I can save 9k on it or more then I might get the 2013.

So some discussion points.

4x4 vs 4x2 how much mileage are we talking difference?
Manual folding mirrors why would you take auto folding off for manual?
3.92 vs 3.21 or 3.55 rear end (I tow a 16 foot Tracker ProV and dont plan on towing anything bigger).

Any thoughts?:smileup:

For what it's worth, it's been my experience that until the next model year vehicle is on the lot and they are selling better than the current or previous year models, the company rebates then and only then get better on those left overs...they might not deal too much on the 2013's until that happens. Good luck!

As to your 4x2 vs 4x4 question, IMHO the mileage difference is not significant enough to choose 4x2 over 4x4. I have found that I rarely use 4x4, but the few times I did, I really needed it so it is worth having for me. Your needs and use may be different.

no question you want 4x4 at slimy, slippery boat launches.

AZdusty, might try telling her it is cheaper to get 4x4 and lsd, than to burn out trans spinning the tires trying to get out or buying new bumper and winch so you won't get stuck.

like your avatar, were you on that ship?

Yes I was from 1989-1996

huntergreen 08-05-2013 01:17 PM

what ship is that?

AzDusty 08-05-2013 01:59 PM

It is CG-49 the west coasts first and finest AEGIS Cruiser, it has a slightly different claim to fame than that and that would be the Iranian Airbus shooting down 3 July 1988. I got onboard late 1988 I guess, old age and good whisky is blurring things these days :) I was not onboard but did have the opportunity to talk to many shipmates that were. You can search USS Vincennes CG-49 to find out more about her and the AEGIS class vessels.
