Would you make this trade??
Would you trade a 1999 Dodge Dakota V8 5.2L, regular cab, shortbed, 4x4, auto, PW, PL, 50K miles, excellent condition.
1995 Dodge 2500 Ram, V8, 4x4, 5sp manual trans, EZdump insert, 8' meyers plow, 80K miles, great condition.
I love my Dakota! But I'd really like a heavier duty truck and really want to be able to dump material. Plus I could plow.
They want $14,995 for the Ram. I paid $17,000 for the Dakota about a year and half ago.
Kelly Blue Book trade in value of Dakota now is $10,500. Private sale is $12,700. I know I could get more then that if I sold privately.
I'm trying to get them to go with an even trade. They are saying "it will be close" but sounds like they want something more from me. They are going to talk to the owner of the dealership and go from there. Meeting with them again tomorrow.
So, thoughts? Thanks.
