At the end of the day....loving it is all that matters.
On the other hand, you could have paid sticker and not be happy.
So it is a win/win

Many years ago I worked in the car/truck business, Ford, Lincoln-Mercury & Dodge trucks & one thing all salesmen will tell you is that the customers who gripe the most about their vehicles and/or how much they paid got the lowest price they could have gotten, and the customers who tell their family & friends how great the vehicle is & what a great deal they got paid window-sticker or close to it !! Just the opposite of what you'd think! But with some people, there's just no pleasing them, no matter how hard you try.

Wow the states definitely have better msrp prices!
My 2012 quad cab sport was 52k msrp, negotiated price was 33'500. I added extended warranty with free servicing til 100'000kms(an extra 2'500), loan insruance(an extra 2'000) plus tax and junk and my final out the door key in hand bill was 40k. Sadly I know nothing about my truck and what it actually has for extras as far as gearing and such so I for all I know they bs'd me on the msrp price. Time to get a build sheet from the stealership.

2012 Longhorn CC 4x4
Sticker: 39,740
Negotiated Price before TTL: 29,700

There may have been a bit more wiggle room there, but they also gave me top dollar for my trade, a 2010 F-150 Super Crew FX4.

I considered the 2012 F-150 XLT 4x4 with the Ecoboost, but I just couldn't justify spending close to 4K more for the Ford.

I tow a good bit, but my new Ram with the 3.92 gears comes close to the F-150's capabilities.

I'm impressed with the Ram so far, and am getting better mpgs than I was with the 2010 F-150 5.4.

I highly recommend Akins Dodge/ Ford in Winder, GA if you're shopping for a new Ram or Ford....Jeep too.
This was the first time I've ever completed a car deal over the internet, and it was too easy. I was still able to negotiate, but in my own home while getting a back rub from the wife!
If you need a contact at their dealership, give me a shout and I will spit the referral fee with you!

Using the same basic format as a previous post:

2012 1500 Laramie CC 4x4
5.7L hemi with 730N radio, alpine with sub, 1yr sat radio, leather, all heated seats, ventilated front bucket seats, backup camera, and these options:

Class IV Receiver Hitch
Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle
Trailer Brake Control
Remote Start System
P275/60R20 OWL AS
32 Gallon Fuel Tank
3.92 Rear Axle Ratio
Tow hooks/skid plates
Chrome powered towing mirrors
50-State Emissions
Quick Order Package 25H Laramie


$46475 msrp on window sticker
$41654 cash price on paperwork (additional rebate maybe ??)
$5100 trade in value
$4500 in rebates per the paperwork

out the door with TTL and keys in hand was $34,523 (would have been $750 less if I had not got the GAP insurance)

I traded in an 08 Silverado crew cab 4x4 w/5.3 (nicely optioned, but not LTZ), in excellent condition with less than 34k on it. It was sold off their lot before I even had 150 miles on the Ram.

You did the right thing. I got rid of my 2011 Ecoboost and bought the Ram. That should tell you something.

As for performance I'm not sure if it's true but I was told in the Mike Rowe videos Ford used 3.73 gears vs the Dodge 3.55 gears in the uphill tow race and then Ford 3.55 vs Dodge 3.92 in the fuel economy comparison.

My Ecoboost had tremendous low end power but the last 5 months I had it, it spent an average of one week per month in the shop.

Bought it and got it home.

2012 Black Ram 1500 Sport Crew 4X4
Base with no option
Dealer threw in a set of Mopar chrome tubular side steps installed.
Zero down-payment and no trade in.
After discounts (Manufacturer and dealer), $32,998.00 plus tax (GST)

Found two scratches on driver side door and passenger side mirror. Dealer promised to fix.

Thanks to those who has provided valuable info on this tread when I was in the searching phase
