Default Looking to buy a 2012 Ram

We'll I've been looking at them for a while, Decided I am going to sell my Dodge magnum, and pick up a ram.

I was looking at a 2012 Ram express 4x4 crew cab. Has everything I wanted, minus leather, but I can deal. Got them down to $34k on the truck. Sticker was $37.5k. I am thinking of having them install the 4" mopar lift. Then I'll throw my own 37's on it.

Anything I should look out for when I am buying this truck? any most have options?


Here's my baby, That I'm selling. 2007 Dodge Magnum, 300c front clip, Bagged (laying body)

I think the express is an awesome truck. I work at a dealership and we always try to keep a good stock on these...one thing i will say though, is that 37k is a pretty loaded one....i would definitely get the chrome 20's and the popular equipment group...which more than likely this one has with that msrp....still think theres a little room left as far as ur negotiating goes.....heck, pm me and depending on wher u live i can hook u up lol.

You just described the truck I am looking at, but mine is white.

Would you suggest doing the 4" mopar lift to retain the warranty. I think I'm going to ask if they throw in the lift (I'll cover the labor) we Have a deal at $34k

Yes I would definitely recommend the lift...I am actually trying to decide whether I just want to throw bilsteins on the front to level it or lift the whole thing...Mine is white also!

You may want to consider having them throw in the labor...depending on their labor rate..probably $80-90, you may be further ahead.

I gotta tell ya I miss my 05 Magnum. We put 120,000 miles on it and loved it. I only traded it because they offered me good money for it. Yours looks really sweet man!
