Should I buy a NEW 2008 build date 4-17-07

There is a 2008 6.4 CC, LB, XLT, 4X4, aftermarket wheels and tires (wider same height as the stock 20") with all the bells and whistles that has been unsold for I think for $48,875 with less then 150miles. With the manufactures age of 4-19-2007 I would want invoice minus 5k and incentives. What do all you guys think? opinions welcome, good or bad. I am looking for a deal and I like the truck. Been a long while since my lasrt post and when I do in fact do it I want to do the Spartan 275 with the DPF delete.

or

Blessings,

Blessings,

too much in my opinion for a xlt..... you didn't say if it was a 250, 350, or 450 either though.

Something doesn't seem right for a truck that has been sitting around for almost two years. I would think that the dealer would be willing to drop the price quite a bit. I also agree with 08powersmoke that 48k is too high for a XLT.

the $48,875 is tthe MSRP. I would not consider MSRP ever. I was thinking of offering 31K for it and see where this goes. I just don't understand why this was sitting for so long. Here in the past 15 months truck sales have been crap. The dealer has only sold 5 or 6 trucks (f250 & F350) in the past 12 months. Thanks.

Blessings,

I would have to agree with 08powersmoke. I think the price is still way too high. We picked up our second 08 F350 in October. Out the door price was just shy of $38,000. It's a F350 King Ranch, SRW, CC, LB, White/Gold, 4x2, 3.73, Auto. Has everything except Nav system, Moon roof and Supplemental heat.

I think it is way too high of a price. I got my 08 in April 250 crew cab larriat loaded with everything except the Navigation and DVD player for 39,000. It had a build date of Feb 08. I would think you could get an even better price now with the economy being in the dumps so bad.

Even your considered offer seems too high to me...start at 26 or so...they're desperate to get rid of it if they've had it 2 years. They'd have to be.

Start below $30,000. Just 5 months ago SD were going with over $10,000 total off the MSRP. Now that truck is one year old with the 2009's out. Check before you go if there is any factory incentives going. Also make sure they will cover the warranty if they added after market parts to it. Good luck.
