Where did you go to? I got mine from Benson in Greer. They offered me WAY more than my 2008 was worth, and were easily one of the best dealers I ever worked with.

You may want to hold on a bit longer if you can. The experts tell us the ecomony is making a turn for the better. If true, this means higher truck sales likely in the forecast.

Another issue right now, aside from a recovering economy, is that some dealers have decent truck inventories due to the anticipation of better times and good December truck sales. This is not helping your trade in situation so you will likely not get the best deal that you would in otherwise different times. If the extra space is not essential to you, I would hold off for the chance to get more for your trade down the road.

Good luck.

Dodgeland in Columbia, same salesman. I've spent so much in mods for my truck it would really be silly to get rid of it! Yeah I'd take most everything out and swap it over but I'm to lazy for all that! Maybe I'll just look into some aftermarket leather or start checking out junkyards for wrecked 10, 11's.

Just adding to this post because for the last few days I've been thinking about selling my Ram RT in lue of one of the perks to my new position is a company truck and I'd like to get a smaller car. I went to subaru Lethbridge and they offered me 22,000 for my 2010 with 27xxx kms. I'm going to open a new thread in the Canada section to get some ideas if anyones interested in buying it. PM me or email me if you'd like pictures or information mchorvathm@gmail.com the truck is in Alberta, and dont throw me lowballs im not interested in dumping the truck I've got a lot of time and money into the truck, Check out the Canada forums if you're interested.

I would NOT trade a vehicle into a Dodge dealer, UNLESS money was still owed on it

Japans auto manufacturers bad luck may be our good luck, all their plants have shut down, even the USA plants, they will not be getting any vehicles at the dealerships, so to keep up their inventories, they MAY be buying a lot of used vehicles, all makes & models, You may get a better offer by going through them for another Ram

Don't trade it in, go to CarMax and get an offer and then phone up Cars Direct. They guarantee (or did on my last vehicle) 200 over a CarMax offer. CarMax has always given me a little more than KBB. That or private sale but that can be a hassle.

With $6,000 in incentives and $3,000 Dealer Discount you can get a new one for $23,000. Thats going to hurt when it comes trade time.
