Howdy Nick and welcome to the Ram ForumZ. I encourage you stop by the Newbie Checkin section and introduce yourself so other members can give you a proper howdoyado.
$8000 seems a little steep, even for a low mileage, 17 year old truck. I'd offer $4500 and see what comes of it. You can check around town as well and see what other trucks with that age and mileage go for.
I'm 100% in agreement with Roger & Nick on this. When I first read: "'98 with 30k" I said to myself, "Wow". But when I saw 8k as the asking price, I said "Whoa.":smiley_thumbs_up:.... Welcome, Nick to The Ram ForumZ!! Thank you for joining us!
+2 What Roger told you... That is pretty high for a 98.
Is it being sold by a dealer.. or an individual?
After 16 years (17 with the new '15's out) the whole low-mileage thing might be worth maybe 1k, but as Roger said, this is a $4,000- $4,800 truck depending on the condition of paint, interior, etc.
Take Roger's advice, and offer $4,500 if the cosmetics are nice. :smileup:
