Trading in my dodge on a 2011?

Well, I have been driving dodges for a long time. Right now I have a deleted 2011 3500 dually 4x4. I am wanting something just a little nicer to cruise in but that can still get the job done! Has anyone here switched from a dodge? Any regrets?

I am looking at a f350 lwb single wheel that I think is pretty loaded. I looked at a brand new 2012 base lariat. No navigation, no sunroof. I got them from 57k down to 50k.

BUT I found a ( certified used ford?) 2011 40,000 miles xlt. From what I gather the only thing it doesn't have that the lariat did is leather seats ( which I will add) and heated seats? Unless I am missing something? I'm looking at 39k for the used one.

The used one seems like a pretty good buy any thoughts?


Ps this sight is awesome, tons of great info! I plan on running 35's on 20's with. Leveling kit. I like the ready lift with the extra 1" in the back to keep the 1 ton rake. I'm also planning on leaving the motor stock ( I hope) they seem to get pretty good fuel mileage stock!

After doing some research here I think the xlt I'm looking at is the "xlt premium package"

Look at the Longhorn 3500 single wheel long beds. They're awesome trucks also. You might try Dodge Cummins forum also. You can get some pretty decent information from that site also.

I traded an 05 Cummins for my 2011 F250 XLT. The difference is night and day between the two, even with a predator and straight pipe on the Cummins. The weak stock 48RE is a big reason why. If you have an '11 6.7 Cummins, it may not be a night and day difference. You would have to drive them thoroughly to find out if the additional cost is worth it. Be careful of trade in value. If your truck is immaculate, make them pay top dollar for it or walk away.

FWIW, the negotiated price on my truck was roughly $41k. Sticker was $53k. If you're going to put down that much for a used truck, you can go new, get a better interest rate (if financing) and a full warranty. The difference in total cost would be negligible, maybe even cost effective to go with the new one.

Congratulations on the new truck I don't believe you will regret it I traded in a 2004 dodge on my 2011 ford and there is a huge difference...this truck stock will outrun my old cummins that I spent way too much money on lol. And the fuel mileage is really close when you keep your foot out of it.

I am pleased with the power. And I averaged 18.6 mpg on the lieometer on the way home last night!

Now if I could only figure out how to work all the electronics!
