Lol. I have neoprene seat covers on all the seats. Guys hardly ever ride in it with me. I just pull the trailers to the sites. The guys usually preffer driving their own rigs when working cause they don't have to worry about showering before they get in their trucks. Lol. I own the company and just wanted the nicest thing dodge made with a Cummins that would get the job done, with some style...

They see their fair share of use without the covers, when I go out at night or have a customer with me. Just stay covered when working.

If you are losing 20k as you drive off the lot, you've been had. I bought my truck new 2.5 years ago and have put over 50k on it and if I traded today it's worth about 12k less than I bought it for.

if you look for the same truck with a few less miles but still second hand itl still be around 10k less. put any decent number of miles and itl be worth less.

10k less than sticker msrp, yes. 10k less than actual purchase price after rebates and discounts, definitely not.
