Sticker on the truck was 15,800. They came down to 15,200. With taxes and all it was a lil over 16. Compared to the prices I've seen them going for around here I got a good deal. For the condition its in it blue booked for over 20,000. It's only got 83,000 on it. That's pretty good for an 03' I'd say! And it's the slt package, 4 dr, 4x4, tow package, and its got some extras like tinted windows, bug guard, those black covers on top of the windows and some other things. The previous dealer took VERY good care of it. Not even a scratch or scuff on it! And I bought it through a dodge dealership so they went all through it to make sure everything was sound. I feel like i got a good deal!

That's a decent deal. Not sure how you afforded that at age 15, you must really work hard

Like i said earlier, I didn't pay the full amount right now. I payed for a big chunk, and then my grandma payed for the rest. And now I'll be paying her back over the course of two years. It worked out great because it leaves me with a good amount of money in the bank in case any repairs come up and for gas and insurance.

Yeah its a good truck to start with for sure. I just found an 03' F250 7.3 with 49k miles that was a bit more than that but drove 10 hours to get it. Just take good care of it, and don't let your buddies drive it.
