What I'd like to know is are the prices you're putting include aftermarket things like extended warranties and all the other options?

Just based off the experience on getting a new fifth wheel, I would think that a 10% discount would be paid back to the dealer with the customer purchasing aftermarket options and then taxes. The price out the door price with tags on the truck, taxes paid, and aftermarket options, is what would really help me plan what I should spend.
How would out the door help you when TTL vary greatly from state to state? The best price comparison is done without including any add ons or TTL. All you should be looking at is dealer discount and rebates. Maybe fees if you are in an area where fees can vary.

Other things like extended warranties can be price compared aside from the truck pricing.

At the very beginning of the process, and would like to know what the real price is. Helps with the budget.

Haven't bought a new vehicle since 2006. Except the fifth wheel, and what I paid over sticker price to get it out the door with a warranty was a shock.

A new truck will come, someday. Would be nice to know how much it costs. Kind of getting the feeling its like a house in a development. One price is listed, but the you're obligated to get 5% add ons, but most people get 20%.

I dont live in an area that has a standard practice of forcing add-ons, it's just not a thing dealers do here. Fees are very minimal too. Where we get hit hard is state fees and taxes, but that has absolutely nothing to do with the dealer and can be figured out online. I would never purchase a vehicle that has dealer add ins just thrown into the total price without a detailed breakdown of cost. And then you still would only compare dealer discount and rebates on the vehicle price, aside from anything else.

Chances of you finding someone who purchased the same truck, with the same dealer add ons, from the same state is slim. Also, looking at the deal as one lump sum is exactly what the dealer want, much easier to hide pricing that way. Any deal you look at should be detailed and itemized.

I purchase a Certified Pre-Owned 2018 f250 XLT for 40K six months ago from a local dealer. I stopped buying new 10 years ago due to the rapid depreciation in the first few years. It's not hard to find a truck in "like new condition" thats a year or two old. A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle also comes with a factory extended warranty and goes through an extensive check up. The only catch is that not all dealers are able to certify used vehicles. So buyers beware, you may find the same vehicle at a different dealership for a little less, but it may not have the extended warranty.
So far I have had good luck with this buying process.

Any idea what the MSRP was on that truck?

I was in the market for a low miles, 1-2 year old truck for awhile, and looked at a couple nice ones. Unlike yourself, I found the CPO trucks to have higher miles, or more flaws than the non cpo trucks I that I saw. To be fair, I didn't look at a whole lot of them.
There is potential to get a brand new Superduty at a pretty substantial discount, that can make the spread between new and used not so far apart, so in my case I went new.

The 12 month CPO
extended warranty is nice, but generally the dealer has added some additional cost into the purchase price, or at least they try to, so you are pretty much paying for it. It costs the dealer $ to CPO it. Im not sure what it would cost to get comparable coverage outside the purchase(non cpo truck)
Also, unlike the original warranty, extended warranties have a deductible.
