The 2008 F450 KR loaded up was 58,450;(minus) 4000 off; 3000 in rebates (plus tax). I had the bedliner sprayed in; 5th wheel hitch (reese 16K); tint front windows; plastic 5th wheel tailgate; mudflaps: 1012.00. I picked it up Saturday morning. It is toooo sweet. Moonroof; navigation system, etc. It doesn't say anywhere here what the Job # is? </div></div>

$45,000 for a used 2007 F350 KR dually with 21,000 miles? Wow, you sure drive a hard bargain especially since with some negotiating, you could have bought that truck new for that!

Just another reason to lease. Pay the 2 year lease up front and all you pay is the tax for the 2 years lease. Put the rest in a CD or whaever and at the end of the 2 years, then buy the truck. You'll save thousands and then gain from the interest on the ramainder. Smart ones actually take out a second mortgage to pay for the 2 year lease and get a deduction on that plus the lease. If you pay the 2 year lease up front you get another discount from Ford to boot.

Sounds pretty complicated to me in order to make a vehicle worth the price.. Take the two year, up front money you let Ford have to invest, and invest it for yourself...
Personally, the buyer never wins on a lease/ purchase deal because the residual is usually tough.

I lease my wifes truck because she's ready to get rid of it when the carpet needs vacuuming, plus Tahoes are a dime a dozen and worthless used.. I also lease my daughters car because a car is worthless after three years.
But trucks? I always come out schmellin' like a rose with a truck..
Drove my 99 SD for 4 years, cost me $8,000.00 for that time.
Drove my 2003 DRW for almost 3 1/2 years, and it cost me 10K.
Drove my Chevy for four years, and it cost me $8,500.00
Do the math, that's less than $200.00 a month to own it..

If your dealer doesn't see it that way, simply have Bobby Williams drop one in on his lap...
Ask SD John about that one! </div></div>Yeah totaly:p i got invoice and will get whatever rebates are when it is on the dealers lot.

two questions
How do you know the invoice ?
What are the current incentives?

I really want the new 250 but the better half will likely have some sticker shock

You can definitely remove the words "likely" and "some" from your last sentence. It ain't a maybe, dude...

If you're not confident your dealer is showing you invoice numbers, Consumer Reports has a decent "New Car Buying" guide. Their report includes a full listing of accessories with MSRPs and invoice for each. The report even includes rebates and incentives available in your area. I bought one of these reports before ordering my truck. I think it cost me 14 bucks. Cheap. It'll help the wife be confident your not taking it in the backside.

Good luck...

Thank you for the link. I too am going to use this information - hopefully to my benefit. The report certainly provides me with some insightful information.

I am two weeks away from purchasing my 2008 F-250CC PSD Lariat 4x.

Good luck! I still haven't received my VIN after ordering more than 2 weeks ago. Buying a new truck is a time to exhibit p-a-t-i-e-n-c-e, for which I have very little.

No kidding....my first mortgage 4 years ago on a $385,000 house (small 3 bedroom colonial on a piece of property the size of the postage stamp) was $2,200 a month (w/ taxes & insurance) after putting $80,000 down. I wish I could buy a house in NJ and have a mortgage payment under $1,000 a month.

Have these trucks gone up that much since May when I took delivery of mine. The price you quoted is very close to what I paid for the F-450 Lariat 4x4 in my signature with $7,000 of options. X-Plan and rebates is the way to go.
