    I would never need that expensive of a truck nor would I be paying sticker price but if someone needs it then it's worth it. Especially if you can afford it. Cool post

    hey if the guy wants to spendthat kind of dough, thats his business. the problem gets to be that GM and dodge and ford see people buying trucks for those kinds of prices, and figure that lots of people will pay that kind of money.

    The dealership I frequent for service normally has 3 $65k or better priced trucks sitting in the showroom, a lot of times one of them will be a gas LTZ with every option available, dont know if they sell them or just swap them out for a different truck but the same truck is never in the showroom.
    The average truck going out the door is a crewcab LT 1500, Texas edition priced at $39k after adding dealer options, once you start adding any other extras the price climbs real fast.
    Definately way more than I'd pay for a truck but there are people out there that will pay the price, keep in mind the dealership and GM are gonna make their profit, better they make it off someone else than us.

    Quoted from the article:
    "I spend 50 percent of my time in my truck, so my philosophy is to get the best."

    My thoughts on that comment:
    Clearly the man's philosophy is broken, as he'd have bought a GM truck if he got the best.

    Here is Canada, up here (up north in BC), that is nothing for a truck, the top models start about that, and go over $80,000 or more...

    I could spend $70,000 and almost build the truck I want from the ground up...I just don't see the point considering the hell some of us put our trucks through.
