Default New Ram...but what to do with the old one?

Looking to get a new Ram with a larger bed for my toys. I currently have a 2009 Laramie Crew cab with 114k miles on it (every option possible). Doubt as though a dealership with give me jack squat for it towards a new truck. I have had people tell me its realistically worth $20k to $22k...but Im not sure. Maybe just turn it into an upscale mudder?

I just am getting into trucks and just dont know enough as to what the value of a nice truck with higher miles on it. Yes it has some custom upgrades but that doesnt mean much to a dealer. Or would it be worth more the closer we get to winter (live in Michigan).

Any info on how to best price a truck or what selling trends are would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks!

Trucks hold their value much better than a car. You might be surprised what a reputable dealer offers you. Good luck with whatever you decide.

if you purchased the 2009 new
It has a LIFETIME DRIVE TRAIN WARRANTY from the factory !!!
the engine itself, the transmission, & the rear end are all covered under that warranty

if i were to decide to buy another new vehicle
i would sell the '09 to a relative & keep myself as Lien Holder on the title, so the Warranty would stay in effect

$20k would be an average trade in value. You could probably get $25k in a private sale.

I would choose a trailer if you just want to haul a toy around.

What something is worth by the book and what something is really worth can be 2 different things.

One thing that may help is with the dealer trade in, you can figure in some additional value since you will only be paying sales tax on the amount you will owe on the truck after trade in. In my case, that added up to another $800 in value.

Bottom line is how much you like your truck. at 114k miles, some would say it's due for parts, and others will say it's just being broke in. That is another personal opinion. You know the history of the truck. look at if from a budget standpoint. Another issue may be body rust and other components. do a good look around under it. see anything? rust is a pervasive bugger and can be a nightmare to keep under control.

Bottom line IMO. Can you afford to pay for the new truck while the old one sits? then you can afford to wait for the price you want.
