My way of dealing with vehicles is to just buy a new one every so many years, just so that I can stay with the curve.

Can I ask if in general it makes sense to trade a 2012 for a 7 year old vehicle? I know that diesel engines last for ever, but what is the rest of the truck like on something that old?

Also given that the 2014's are coming out and there appears to be deals on just about everything now, would it make sense to try and see if you could get a decent price on a new 2500?

Just as suggestion as I really don't know.

Sorry I couldn't help.
Honestly, I appreciate you commenting in general LOL...

I dont know what makes the most sense. I wasnt really looking to trade up cause I didnt want to tack another $10K to my loan.

I did go down and look at the truck today, the body and interior were pretty darn good for a 7yr old truck. Amazing how much bigger the Mega is over the Crew. The diesel was surprisingly nice from a stop and had pretty good pickup. Guess I was expecting worse since they are TQ monsters and have no HP.

They are asking $22,991 for it -
