04 leftover, 8.1/ally


Recommended Posts

Just curious as to what some of you think about what a leftover 04 with 8.1 and Ally should sell for.

 

I stopped by a dealership today and they had an 04 2500 HD 4x4 EC LB SLE. It's got 78 miles on it, so it wasn't a demo. The MSRP on the truck is $39K and they had $29K written on the window. I haven't got their actual price yet (they're going to call me this afternoon with it). I figure a similar 05 with the employee discount and the $3k cash back would be around $29-30K, no? Only thing is, no dealerships within 350 miles of me have any 05 8.1/allys left.

 

I'm going to see if I can't get it for $26K. Does that number sound about right?

 

Would really appreciate any input here.

 

Thanks.

Kelly Blue book has trade-in value on that truck for about $24500. Seeing as it would have full warranty, if you could get it for $26000, then it would be OK.

 

I would no-way give them $29k for it, when like you said, you could get an '05 for about the same price.

 

One other advantage for the '04, is that it is almost 2 years old, and if you plan on driving the wheels off it, it will still have low miles compared to a an '05.

I really don't think you could get it for less than $29K. I've looked around and they are popular enough that they don't need to drop the price too low. Even for an '04. I'm not a bubble burster, but the '05 1500 quads are going for $27K....

Well, the dealer called me back and said they wouldn't go lower than $29K. They offered me $14K for my truck (01 2500 HD SLE 4x4 6.0), so out the door with taxes and tags would cost me $17K.

 

I told him I'd think about it and get back to him. I don't think I'm going to go for it though. There's a local dealer that has a Duramax/Ally locally for $31K and it's an 05.

 

It may still be worth $29K to some people, but I don't see myself as some people in this scenario. I'd still like to get him down to $26K, but I'd go as high as $27K, no more than that.
