Decided To Keep My 2008, Wait 2 Years...

and see how the 2011 & 2012 trucks have done. I think they were giving me a pretty good deal on the 2010 (sticker $58700 & out the door at $43,320 which included a Snug Top Super Sport cap) but the problem was they were really giving me a low amount on my 2008 which made be almost $6000 thousand upside down and they would not budge at all in the trade dollars. I told them goodbye this morning and if they still had the truck in a few months to give me a call. The sales manager was a little pissed because he had a buyer lined up for my truck. I'm really happy with my 2008 XLT..just wanted the fancier Lariat. Thanks for all the posts (both for and against) as this did help me with my decision.

2010 F350 Lariat FX4 CC Long Box, Line X, Pueblo Gold, H&S Mini Maxx, DPF/DOC Delete, Flo Pro Down Pipe Back Stainless Exhaust, Flo Pro EGR/Cooler Delete with High Flow Intake Elbow, S&B CAI, MBRP Exhaust Tip

To me, there aren't enough differences between the 2008, and 2010 MY trucks to make it worth trading. But I agree with you entirely, wait a few years, then maybe trade for a 2012 or something.

Traded.. 03 6.0 PSD For.. Black F250 2008 SD LARIAT 6.4 PSD 4x4, Aries Bull Bar, Westin chrome running bars, Dura Liner, B&W Gooseneck hitch, Recon smoked taillights, Icon 4.5" lift, 35" Toyo M/T, etc... Running Spartan Tunes AFE PG 7, Flo Pro 4" DP Back, thanks to Cobb's Diesel. It has been great so far.

I was right there on ordering a new 2011 to replace my 08 and I backed out of a great deal. My 08 is running very well and I'm not going to be a Job 1 test driver again. I'll buy a 2012 with all of the bugs worked out and upgraded power plus upgraded other stuff. Go 6.4 PSD !!
