OH -- if that includes taxes, fees, etc. that makes a large difference. Sorry, I missed that part.

Well I got a pretty good deal, I think. 2012 Laramie Mega 3.73 : 62k on the Road. I give them my 05 Uplander and they install Chrome Bed Rails and Chrome Bug Deflector.

Thoughts?

I have also been working on a trade deal since November. My 1500 for a 2500 with some cash involved. The dealership wasn't budging until the calendar changed to 2013. Now they have met me money wise, all that is left is for them to throw in the 4:10's instead of the 3:73's that are currently installed and we will be swapping. They called me again today with some free goodies but still not 4:10's. Camping season is still month's away so I can be patient! Hold your ground, if they want to dance, they will ask you out!

I know what you mean. I am sticking to my guns on the 4:10 because I recently purchased a commuter car to do most of my mileage so the truck is really for pulling the 35 foot Travel Trailer and for lugging the toys around.

Having two cars has really been a blast, having a 150km daily commute, the little car pays for itself in gas savings and then on weekends I get to enjoy the truck even more! I have only taken the truck out 3 times this winter because I would rather keep it away from the salt, plus winter tires for the ram were close to 2000$, winter tires for the little car cost me 380$, lol!

ill only be towing 6-8 times a year Max. and my daily commute is only 5k. so i suspect the 373 is best for me. but with a 12k trailer ill be close to the limit.

In that case then yes, you are golden with the 3:73!

My trailer is only 8500lbs but I want the 4:10 just because we have a few long trips coming up in the next 2 years, so having the 4:10 and higher limit just brings peace of mind for treks to Florida, Western Canada, etc!

If i decide to buy another Ram, somewhere in the future
I will become a Chrysler Affiliate, no matter what i have to do to achieve it
many people qualify for it & don't know it
https://www.chrysleraffiliates.com/JSP/indexLayout.jsp

https://forms.chryslercanada.ca/preferredcustomer/en/
Chrysler Affiliate doesn't mean much... It's 1% below invoice + factory rebates. I have access to it.

Today I was talking to a Ram dealer about ordering a 3500 and was offered $600 + rebates (whatever rebates might be available at time of delivery). $600 below is better then 1% below...

For now, my goal is to get invoice + half the hold back + factory rebates.


BTW, the best deal I've heard, so far, was someone getting $17,500 off MSRP. They still had to add TTL to it and it was in Canada too.

Laramie Mega 4x4 373: 63,500 + Chrome bed rails, bug deflector and window visors, on the road price!

Sticker was originally 77k.

The only thing stopping me is the travel, 1700 kilos, from Dieppe NB to Ontario to pick it up.
