It seems a used diesel truck is commanding a high price these days. We have a 2010 mega cab on our lot that has 110k miles on it and they’re asking $38k for it.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

The mega cabs from 2006 to 2009 have really exploded in demand. 4 years ago you couldn't give them away and now everybody wants 1.  :bdid:

I have a 07 mega cab I got a few years ago for a great deal and now the asking price for them makes me want to sell, but I wont!

Yep, Older Diesel trucks are really commanding high prices. I lost out in a bidding war over a 01 cummins with a six speed. only 75k miles on it. I'd offered way over NADA retail pricing and a dealer bought it from the guy for more. Not trade in, just bought it from him. I think it went for $19k, a lot of truck, but a lot of money for a 01.

A coworker just traded in an 07 with 82k on it. The dealership listed it for over $30k and it was sold within a few days. Being a Dodge, it had lots of new parts in the front end too!

Sold my 06 for 18 K in 36 hours.  It had just shy of 180K miles.....6 speed manual.  Didn't want to sell but also did not need two rigs.  I have to say, the 2018 is a lot nicer ride.  Just wish it had the 6 speed manual. 

As a thought.....30K for an 06 cummins with low mileage is not a horrible price.  Especially when you look at the cost of the new one.   :yike: :yike: :yike:

I traded in my 05 for an o6 with 50k, 6 speed and full suspension and other upgrades.  It was over 30k. I got it before it went out on the lot. Very tough market for a manual cummins.  BUT an older pre emission is a very good thing. No crap except an engine.  25k mile oil change and an air filter wash n go.  Fuel filter 1 a year 25$. 400+hp all day long and a DD clutch.  New ones-Bring it!  :chuckle:

"Right now, I am thinking that If my grandmother was here, she would be lecturing me about how there are poor people in Africa, that would just love to have a Ruger, I would just say "Great, granny, lets just ship all the Rugers to Africa!"

It sounds like it's time to get a new gun.
