I looked a little bit at what's available down in Tennessee.  Way cheaper.  I don't even think I could justify buying up here after seeing that.

Where were you looking at to start with ?

Spot Exchange Rate this AM CAD 55,888.00 = USD 41,323.5872.  At the moment I did it 0.7394 but it is floating around 0.738x to 0.739x this AM.

This is straight up currency market conversion, not what one of us could convert for.

They are about what Chicago is for prices.

50 miles of 18071
F250 - F350
2009 - 2012

20 this AM, most expensive was a 2012 F350 6.7L  Lariat w/ 56K miles @ 42.9K.



Bit older with some more miles :

2010 F250 6.4L XLT w/ 63K miles @ $33K



Going to an example to the one from CAN.

2014 F350 6.7L w/ 30K miles @ $ 43.5K
- Not really cheaper going with import of a CAN truck.

Yeah, I would agree those look like decent prices.

The 2010 is nice!

I'm half tempted to drive down and check that truck out.  KBB says I have $7-9k in equity in my truck.  However, I do not have good luck with that dealership.  I test drove a GMC when I was looking for my current truck and one of the guys came out to look at my Mustang for the trade and couldn't figure out how to get it in reverse and almost drove it through the showroom window.  Then they insulted me by offering me a few grand under what I owed yet.  The dealer I ended up going through gave me a few grand over what I owed.  The two dealers were close to $6k apart.

Ok, quick update on the truck after 4 months and going on 21,000 miles(yes you read that correctly :dope:). The truck developed an annoying coolant leak on the front of the motor but it hasn't ticked me off enough yet to warrant spending the money to fix it. This thing is a trailer towing Beast even with the Mini-Max set to no power with a trailer behind it and with it set to Hot it's a rocket when passing cars that can hit triple digits in a hurry if you're not paying attention.

Overall I'm happy with the truck.

Glad to hear you're liking it, but some of us are still waiting for pics of the first full detail. Hint, hint.

Tom, unless something changes and I can free up a weekend or two detailing the truck is going to have to wait. Business has been nuts this year and with the boys playing sports it's tough.

I ran it by the Excuse Committee and somehow they bought it. They said you can only use it once though.

Like Mike said, good problems to have!

Glad to hear it's still putting a smile on your face. Probably quite the beast all set up like that.

21K miles in 4 months  :wow:

I have been in airport since I got the Nav, I have only put ~3K miles on it since NOV-2016.

I also have the same problems, too busy to put a full detail on it and with the road construction out in front of the house running to NOV-2017 there has been no reason.
- Dirt and dust and once a rain comes all mud.

I tossed all my open pads and put the polishers in bags until construction is done.
