Well I think they final did something smart that a big truck dealership realized that commercial/municipal fleets are in a penny pinch and are just overhauling what they have.
Back on topic I this past summer I was messing around on the dodge site and put together a 4500 that was a optionless, 2wd, standard cab, 6spd, a 5:13 locking rear end, and a 11 foot PTO mason dump for $32,600.
I had started a thread last month it's going to be cheaper to fix it in 2009.
No matter your brand GM/FORD/DODGE 4500/5500 commercial trucks, they all have dropped their chassis cab price's to under 45K depending on the model.
