    Going to part ways with my baby, 2012 Ram 3500 Mega Cab Dually. Just bought a motorhome and got rid of the toyhauler so no need for it any more. I KBB it and it came back 42-46K for trade in value which I thought was pretty damn high? I only have 41.3K miles on it and am the original owner. What is a reasonable asking price? I have not sold a vehicle private property in years, I usually just bend over and take it to the dealer and trade it in. I'm looking to get a used/newer year F150. Dually.jpg

    That's around what I thought, the KBB calculator threw me off.

    No Def. 2012 was the last year without.

    Big Horn, no leather, but interior is pretty immaculate, and it is 4x4. I can post pics later of interior.

    Non-def truck with the 4-link front. That low of mileage should be 40k+... I think the KBB is accurate, find a dealer that will pay. Or maybe even a small dealer like the ones that post on here. What gears? Lots of guys looking for that rig. Maybe post on DTX or the other cummins forums...

    Thanks for the offer. I found a truck I like and traded it in. They gave me 32.5K so I was pretty happy.

    The seats are comfy as all hell. Really like the lumbar support and the seat heaters in this cold are nice. The seats also have air conditioning, but I have not tried it yet.

    It has the 3.5 turbo which is really damn nice. I thought about both the regular v6 and the 2.7, however I did not want to struggle pulling our boat so I opted for the turbo. I also looked at the v8, however I have a buddy that has had the v8 and turbo and he swears by the turbo.

    I sold my 2012 crew cab not mega, but it was a longhorn. for $39k about 8 months ago. I regret selling it but rarely ever used the truck it just sat most of the time.

    Damn! It was a great truck for me when I needed it, but yes it too sat for most of the beginning of its life. I just recently had to start commuting in it and the 91 freeway was hell. I also hated getting in and out because I did not have step.

    Dam I would have got a deal and you could have got a couple grand more in your pocket. Could have been a win win!
