I am not sure how much better you're going to get for a deal, but that sounds like a pretty badass rig.
Manual trucks are real hard to come by, I was going to order one special when I bought mine, but I woulda had to wait like 8 weeks for it to be built, plus however long it would take to ship it to just about Alaska, so I figured I'd jump in one they had on the lot.
I got quite a bit off on mine, but at the same time, I work for the dealership, so I imagine I got a little better slice than most would have.
It's an XL... does it have the XLT appearance package with the nicer headlamps? Or does it have the ugly sealed beam lamps?
As for advice? See if you can get 'em to throw some **** in with the deal... bedliner, undercoating, extended warranty, etc.
Find out what it's worth, but if you're willing to spend it, I'd buy the following:
Diesel Care Ulitmate w/FMPP (oil changes, fuel filters, tire rotations, all the maintenance **** all covered)
Premium Care Warranty (covers pretty near EVERYTHING on the truck, to pretty much however much mileage you are willing to pay for)
Also see if you can get a tire/rim warranty depending on what kinda wheels/tires are on it, rims and tires can be real expensive if you were to clobber a pot hole or curb or something, most times it's covered, I think. I'm not a hundred percent sure on how the tire/wheel warranty works, so check on that for sure.
See how much of a deal they can do on the warranty, they aren't real cheap if memory serves me rightly.
