Priced too high?

I'm looking at an '08 F-350, 88K miles, loaded w/ navigation screen, comes with a tuner, the dealer won't budge below $31,700. What do you think?

what configuration is it? crew cab, ext cab 4x4?? If its a crew 4x4 then thats probably not too bad. I looked at an 06 a month ago that had 57k on it and it was a loaded crew fx4 for $28,900. I would be careful though about buying one with a tuner on it if there aren't any more mods to it.

I'm not really up on what 6.4s are worth but I'd say do some research through Kelly Blue Book or any other sources and run its options and miles to see what they say its worth. Then decide what that truck is really worth to you. I wouldn't give them a penny over blue book since you have to know they MAYBE payed what the trade in value is on it. There are tons of 6.4s on the market just maybe not in your immediate area.

It's a crew cab, 4X4, looks to be very clean. Also, I think the dealer is adding SCT tuners on the few '08s they have. Here is the link to the truck:

The dealer is adding tuners? I don't see how they could do that and still sell them with a warranty, when current owners do that and bring it in for work and they void the warranties. The SCT is a good setup for the 6.4 but i would really have to question if the dealer is putting them on.

I agree with your logic completely, just saying they had three '08s with SCT tuners, propably came with the truck when traded in. It's a small town dealership, so who knows really. But back to my original question, if no problems with the truck, is it priced right? ALso, the dealership will still honor the factory warranty (even with the tuner, go figure). Thanks guys.

Seems a tad bit high to me... Maybe rather then dropping the price you can have them through in stuff like oil changes (if you have them do that work anyway) or some parts money stuff like that.
