I payed $162k out the door. All taxes & license. Not apportioned.
Im not a fan of local dealers. I was buying all my trucks from a board member (DickieB) but he passed away. So I was on the search. Denver seemed like a cool place to visit. Lol. Thats literally why I picked it.
That seems like a good price my last truck delivered November 2017 was 164k out the door that was the price DickieB gave me and inland matched T880 X15 505 1650 tq, 18 speed automated,46k rears on ADZ air ride, 8k drop Axel, loaded interior.
I have another one due in mid October same spec except 1850 tq and a different color new price 181K.
I do think there is some value in having the local dealer see me as more than just a parts buyer and warranty user, but I would never buy a truck or use the service depart at my local rush dealer.

On your new truck I did notice you have 3 batteries I have been running 2 batteries for 20 plus years with no starting problems hear in San Diego county saves weight and $ when one goes bad

I tried 2 batts. Doesn't work with new trucks & all computers. The backing into hitch with the starter tears them up. Gotta do 3 for longevity.

I wont go to pete fontana for service. Cunt inside is notorious for being a major gash

Ill take to KW for warranty service. I do 99.9% of my own work when not under warranty. Ive invested in the proper computers to do so. This one has a 5/500k warranty. It will be sold in 4.5 years and replaced. Im tired of driving all day then fixing all night. Im just gonna make payments and let warranty take care of my issues.
Brakes, tires, & oil changes are the wave of my future

I buy petes. If your interested in a pete pm me Ill give you my salesman #

Well she finally made it to CA and spent the night with her sisters before she was sent to the dump body builder. The truck box is ready to be mounted. I hope to be putting her to work by November.

Maybe the 2FF method. Build it and list it, if you can turn a small profit.
Other angle, PIA to get built and you don’t want to see it in your yard due to all the delays and vendor issues.

I just read this whole thread and thought the same thing. A Sixth Sense ending. Maybe Kathy is a bitch.:D

That's great, best of luck with your new adventure in Utah. Love Utah, been exploring all over every summer. People are great, nice, clean and the scenery & skies are something else.
