Thank you for all the responses. I appreciate the insights.
I swore I"d never buy a brand new truck, but right now trucks in the 2-3 yr old range 25-50k miles are pricing close to what the new ones are. If I don"t go nuts on options and buy one of the ones they have on hand, it seems to make some sense. I checked on a used 2011 with 25k miles on it at another dealership. It needed tires. After the cost of new rubber, it is less than $2000 difference to buy new.
Dunno what to do yet, gotta let it all roll around in my brain for a couple days, I think.
If it"s a good deal today, it"ll still be a good deal tomorrow.
Thanks again BW
