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!

Me and my 6.0 are in this love, hate relationship. I would love to trade in and trade up I would hate to add a loan to what I think is the light at the end of the tunnel 20 more months to go...

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.

But the funny thing is...is that these trucks are selling fast. The dealers in my area can't keep them on the lot.

That's because all the guys who still want Fords are finally paying off their 5-7 year loans on their 6.0Ls and they're desperate for anything better from Ford.

I just paid off my '05 F-350. I'll be keeping it. And when the 6.0L finally gives me enough reason, I'll put Plan-CR67-6M into action!

My truck stickered at $45,450 and I felt like I did really good getting out the door at $37k, tax, license and bs, with rebates and Family Plan, I got just at $9k off sticker, just about what the bank took in interest, oddly enough.

I'll likely NEVER buy a NEW truck again, it's used, cash money from here on out for me.

BTW, my 1977 F-150 Ranger XLT, (only thing better was a Lariat at the time) special ordered just the way he wanted it in 1977, cost my dad right at $7700 34 years ago. Times have changed boys, a dollar is worth about $0.10 from 35 years ago.

When I bought my '88 F250 custom new for $23K I was having anxiety attacks. Never thought I would be paying $40K+ for my current truck. Its paid for and I am guessing I will be keeping it for a long time.
