Default How much did you pay for your Ram?

I thought it would be interesting to know what others paid for their trucks, maybe share some "buyer's tricks" on how you got that smoking deal, and possibly arm some perspective buyers with some knowledge before entering that jungle known as "The Dealership".

Let's try to be specific as to MSRP, any dealer discounts, rebates, and final sales price EXCLUDING any tax, license, or doc fees as they vary widely.


My truck is a 2012 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 crew cab.

MSRP $42,295
Dealer discount $6767
Rebates $4000
Final sales price $31,528

I got my deal by searching the internet and found the truck about 5 hours away from me. The internet is a great shopping tool! For a nearly identical truck my local dealer wanted $4,000 more.
Also I didn't pay the $179 for the "Nitro Fill" tires that was on "all" their vehicles and I was pretty hard nosed so they didn't even hit me up to pay for the "Paint Protectant" that had already been applied. Told them I wasn't paying for anything that wasn't clearly marked on the window sticker .. that ended that.

Let's hear your deal!
