The dealer will rape you on a trade in, sell it on your own. In Cincinnati I always had good luck with autotraders.com . Paid the one time listing fee & sold the car.

Agreed. Never trade in unless you HAVE TO. Sell it privately, then go get your 4x4. You wont get nearly what you paid for cause of the market but you will also get a great deal on a new-to-you truck.. id be interested to hear how it turns out

Do you really need 4wd? You could buy a moto or ATV or better yet save your $ for the difference of you putting the same truck but 4wd in your driveway. Upgrading tires can help some.

If it makes you feel better, Robbie Gordon is halfway thru the Dakar rally near the top 5 in only a 2wd Hummer.

Not necessarily. Resale is so high on this trucks, I know folks who traded them in early and made out pretty well. A buddy had an '07 TRD OR for 4 months, traded it in on a Tundra, and only lost $600 in the deal. Granted, economics are slightly different now vs then but still, check out the resale values on Edmunds. They are still high.

The moral of the story is, at least you didn't buy a Ford.
