    I am a foreman for a landscaping copmany and a roof/siding company. We make enough money to get by. I am thinking of selling my dodge dakota for an F-150 Laraite supercrew. This truck will be driven only by me and used to check up on workers more than towing things around.. The engine is a 5.41L V-8 which is smaller than Dodge Rams and, Chevy 1500's and obviously F-250's... What do you recommend? Is the truck worth the $38,000 it'll cost me?

    Sticker price is $38,000 but that truck out the door (tax, tags, title) shouldn't cost any more then $28,000. I just bought a new 2006 F250 diesel lariat fx4 sicker of $51,500 and paid $42,000.

    I bought a 2005 Ford F-250 Diesel Crew Cab back in June. Lariat Package, LOADED. Sticker almost 51k, out the door for 41k. So I think that 38k for a gas F-150 would be way to high.

    $38K for a Half ton? Not in this lifetime. Go to another dealer my friend.

    FORGET THAT! If 38k is after negotiation then walk on that one. Go to your dodge dealer and pick up a laramie 2500 w/ HO cummins diesel. DONT SPEND 38K ON A HALF TON.

    Way to high...


    My 2005 silverado crew cab with the 5.3 was 22k with a small trade in.

    As stated earlier, if that is the "out the door" price, DO NOT do it. That is way high for final price. I recently got a 2004 Dodge Ram Quad-Cab w/Hemi and everything under the sun with only 34K on it for just $18,000. Dealer will talk, as sales are down. Shop around a little bit.

    I just looked this truck up on Kelley Blue Book and it does book out just shy of $38K. However it also said what consumers are averaging paying for this truck is only $33K. Car sales are way down now anyway they should be happy to move a vehicle, I'd offer $28K.
