The truck comes with the following:
2013 RAM BIGHORN 1500
5.7L V8, 8SPEED TRANNY, 3.55 GEARS
PREM BUCKET SEATS 26Z PACKAGE
ANTI SPIN DIFF
TRAILER BREAK CONTROL
CHROME TUBE STEP BOARDS
60R20 ALL SEASON TIRES
ADDING LEATHER FOR 1,400
MSRP WITH LEATHER IS 40,070 BEFORE 38,670
TTL WAS AT 34,400 WALKED OUT WITH GAP INS AND TOTAL WAS 35.
FEELING LIKE FOR THAT PRICE I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER? SHOULD I TAKE DELIVERY
TTL is non negotiable and shouldn't be considered in the negotiated price for the truck imo, you have to pay it no matter what. So if you drop that off you are closer to 9k off msrp. If you dropped the gap you will be near 10k.
Sounds like a pretty decent deal to me especially since you got the Rambox, they seem to be pretty hard to find.
