Yea, they are expensive. Two years ago we bought our '08 Sierra 1500. That was $20k used and I balked. I like it though.

I've been in the market for a used 2500 diesel for a bit of time now and am just waiting for the right deal to come along. In the meantime, I've made the mistake of swinging through a couple of new truck lots in the process. Seems to take at least a week or so to get over my case of the WantIts every time I do something like this.

We bought our Ram during a stop at a dealer "just to look around". We were not prepared to spend a few hours there and the kids started getting hungry and cranky. I knew we were buying a truck when our salesman ran out, bought our kids some mcdonalds, and set them up to eat at his desk. My wife and I have a strict "no stopping to look around" rule now. No regrets though we're still really happy with the truck.

After pricing out a new Expedition and the Travel Trailer we would want (our gear were both 2005) we bought a new 2015 Precept 35un. The Expedition price with tow package was insane. We traded our TT in, Kept the Expedition.

Bought my F250 new in 06, thought I'd have to live in it when I got it home. Any time I think about upgrading to a newer truck, STICKER SHOCK! Not to mention death stares from DW. I couldn't even get into a F150 for what I paid for my F250. But I got what I wanted, Xtra cab, long bed, Powerstroke, and just now hitting 75K mi..

Yeah my next purchase would likely be something like that. My 2500 although 12 yrs old only has 104K so I`m still good for now. As they say, I was "just looking''. P.S. I did change my oil this morning too.

I'm the exact opposite... I would wander around and see the high prices and be so happy with what I already have! I did upgrade to a used Cummins last summer though. I was looking at new gas trucks when I found the used Cummins!

I drive by a dealer every day on my day to and from work, and every so often after seeing the rows of the new trucks staring at me, I get "upgrade-itis" and want to get a new truck. Then I look at what I have, it's still in good shape, it's paid for, and it still does what I want it to. That feeling goes away after that.
