Yeah i agree. These sticker prices on these new truck are absolutly rediculous. The sticker on my truck was like 42K and i thought that was over kill. It's just absolutly outragous even though i'd love to have a newer one...i just don't see it happening. I saw a sticker on a 2011 F-350 king ranch dually loaded to the gillls for a near 75K....worth it? I think not!

It was around 95 or 96, I was pricing a F-250 4x4 powerstroke. Reg Cab XLT nothing fancy but the typical XLT stuff. If I can remember right it stickered around $24K, I thought the near $3,500 for the 7.3 DI was high at the time.

I just looked at a 2011 reg cab 4x4, it was not a lariat but had a few options, mainly towing and off-road type options. It stickered right at $51,000.

My motto: Be nice, be polite, but have have a plan to kill everyone that you meet.

94 F250 IDI turbo, auto 2wd.. ATS housing, 3" down, 4" exh, guages. 104k miles got totalled by a damn mustang (parts now).

98 12v, 4x4 quad cab. auto with BD T/C & V/B, Banks Big head, Exh brake, AFC modded, 16.5ish*, KDP gone, 60lb springs, 4K-GSK, BHAF, pyro, trans, and boost guages. 4" straight pipe,

72 AM General M35A2, LDT465-1C "Whistler" Turbo, PTO winch.
