Best time of year to buy a new diesel?

Just a quick question, I am tossing around the idea of trading in my 2010 chevy 2500HD gasser on a F250 Diesel.

I am slowly starting to regret buying the chevy, while a great truck, it has it's problems.

I know deals are better at the end of the year, but when I was looking at the chevy, all the trucks equipped with the Duramax were GONE when any sort of lucrative deal hit the shelves near the end.

I have never done any sort of dealing with Ford, is there a good time of year when Ford sets deals on the F250s?

Or would I come off better by building my own? I don't need any fancy equipment, just 4 door, diesel, 4x4, long bed. Could live with cloth, rubber floors and manual window/locks.

I'm in the process of buying a 2011 now, going Friday to pick it up. I got $11,000 off the sticker, it's a Lariat and buying it in Grapevine, TX. I live near Houston but this was my best deal and great sales people from my dealings so far. No BS, just what appears to be straight facts. I tried to buy locally but rude sales guys who acted as though they could care less if I bought from them or not made my decision easy as I'm not going to waste my time on these types of salesmen. I was in the office in Grapevine with my wife and kids and within 15 minutes had a deal. They knew their product and explained everything nicely, fast, and efficient.

$60775, price with the discounts is about $49900 so just under $11,000 off. I'm taking the Ford rebates then will re-finance it with my own lender as it's a much better rate. saved another $1,000 this way.

Phew, king ranch? That f250 must be loaded, I found some 45k-50k after mark up, but they were 4x4, diesel, cloth, and I think four door.

Regardless, I am jealous, probably one sweet truck.

Not a King Ranch, it's a Lariat but pretty much loaded I think. Lariat ultimate package, 20" wheels, chrome package which I really didn't want but it was my first choice in color on both exterior and interior. 4x4 Crew cab with FX package. I'm excited about the truck, not excited about paying for it. Luckily I was able to sell my SUV myself and came out over $3,000 better than trading. I listed my SUV and sold it almost immediately. I'm extremely anal with everything I own, probably way too anal, so I take really good care of my vehicles. I think most people involved in car forums are probably the same way. I plan on keeping the truck for a long time and maybe pass it to my son when he's 16, he's 10 now.

Congrats, you will love the f250, we have a loaded 08 f250 at work that tows continually for 6 months out the year, and it's mean. I regret going to Chevy everyday I see that truck.

Your son has a good dad, that will be one hell of a truck to learn on at 16. I am jealous, I learned on a sixxer mustang
