You've pretty much nailed it.
I strongly wanted to get this gorgeous truck...anyone can look it up..Tomball Dodge Jeep Ram in Tomball Tx. Don't have the link, but easily googled. They have 6 or 7 2012 hard loaded Laramie Limited 4x4 Crew Cabs in blue, black, white, etc.
Gorgeous trucks and I guess they picked up many of these trucks from other local dealers wholesale bc several had dealer stickers that had been peeled off. So, yes, new, untitled, dirty, been sitting, etc. but I was tempted just bc I wanted one..really have no need, it's an extra vehicle and I don't regularly tow, but we utilize occasionally and are always glad we have the 08.
That said, i've decided to hold back. I still love my 08 and I think I'm just gonna update the headlights, taillights, and some interior details and hang onto it. Why roll the dice on a truck that's been sitting for at least a year to two years and then have something maybe go wrong. I know what I have, and that's an extremely reliable 4x2 quad w a newer 4.7 v8 and it's paid off.
Thanks for all your posts, opinions, and insights.
Wish I had never test drove the 2012 (freaking ventilated seats!!!)
I'll post some fotos of the 08 soon and I think I'm making the right decision for me and my family!
