    I seen this today at a dealership, it didn't have any info on it but i think i found it on their website. from what i could see it has 39" mud grapplers, 20" rims, rough country suspension lift, 3" superlift body lift, it had an aftermarket front grill, headlight blackouts, aftermarket nerf bars, fender flares, and bed cover

    here it is from their website...........

    Kelley Blue Book shows that truck should retail at $20,000 and trade in at $14,000. Typically dealers don't give a lot of extra value for lifted trade ins but try to sell them for more than a stocker. The retail value I give is for a truck with "Oversize off road tires" and "20" plus wheels" . In my opinion the value should go down on lifted trucks because the chances are it's been abused and off roaded. Also do you know if it's been regeared? What was the mileage when the lift was put on? Don't know if your interested in buying this truck, but one thing to think about is, you could be buying someone elses problems. Have to admit it does look pretty good, now I know what mine would look like if I would've went that route!

    i'm not interested in buying it, my brother is looking for one and i seen this one when i was at work and stopped by to look at it. it seemed kinda high priced to me so i was just wondering what everyone else thought of it.

    yes that is a ford mirror :( i drive an f150 for work, they won't switch to chevys...........I've tried :great:

    First do a Carfax on it.... See if you can find the first owner. Ask him what was done.. If you can't look over it top to bottom..Look for dry mud under it, marks like rub marks under from hitting rocks or what ever could hit and rub off the under coating that GM puts on. Look at the rears see if the bolts have been moved..Check where the seat gets bolted to the floor. Is there rust? Did the dealer spray something in there to make it smell good only to hind the reat smell.. If this all checks out.. Just ask them if they got it as a trade in or Wholesale? If WS they paid around $18K for it.. It does look nice I would offer them $20K for it and see where it goes...

    Good Luck... and let us know..

    i Was just shooting from the hip on $22K i didnt book it. But wow, i thought there would be a touch more value there... But yes.. Oh and when you offer them $18K for it since they got it at wholesale i wanna be there to see the managers face.. or if it was a trade in i wanna see when you offer $16K.. Because they will go "well, well, well its got a lift and those big rims that adds $7K to the value right there, plus its a crew cab and those are really desireable" And then he will stutter something else you cant understand.. Gotta love dealer mark up.. And they wonder why people dont go to some dealers... But for sure let us know if your brother takes a look at it...

    And actually ford trucks to me are just fine... I wont own a dodge however..

    They probably won't budge much on their price because they know there is a "sucker" out there who will pay based on looks alone.:glasses:

    Well this much i know hence why i want to see the look on their face... Whats bad is that sucker will probably have 10% interest and a $600 mo. pmt on a be paying for 7 years for it... I hate dealers... But then again i did post up a guy on CL that was asking $19K for a 1997 chevy.. so private sellers arent always the best either.

    imo, i would not buy it, i used to work at a 4x4 shop before i joined the marine corps and that big of a tire on a half ton is just a money pit. u should never put bigger than a 35" on a indipendant front suspension half ton. iv seen many trucks come in with 37"-38" with less than 100k miles and the whole front end is shot. ball joints and stearing componets. and that 10 bolt rear wont hold up to good.
    just my opinion from what iv seen
