Looking for opinions on when to trade the truck for a newer one. I currently have a 12 with 77k miles on it and i have a few people telling me that its time to look at trading. I run a small business where i pull a 13k load about 40 percent of the time. The rest is mainly highway drives with tools in the bed. This is my first diesel, so I'm not sure if i should run this to higher miles then trade, or look at doing it while I still have some warranty left. I do travel within a 6 hour radius of home and average 40k miles a year. Trying to figure out the most cost effect way to go lol.
Thanks for your input.

I would keep it, honestly the 2012's are proving to be better built and popular trucks than the 13'+. 77k is not a lot of miles. I would wait until the new 2017-18' super duties come out. It will be worth the wait then trade it in, or sell to a private party with 130-140k and you will get more money back. The dealers take your trade in and give you 60% of worth and then raise the truck your buying up 40% so, you work out paying the same. I've always had luck selling to private party! That's 2 cents. ??

Thanks for the input. When i bought this truck i figured it should go the miles, but got a little nervous when i had several people say i should look hard at trading it in before it got 100k on it. This has been a good truck so i really haven't been in to big of a hurry to trade it. I'm thinking your right and I'll look at waiting and seeing how much more selling it private party will be
Thanks.
