    i currently have a 08' 2.7 acc. cab 4x4, today i stopped by the local dealership and they had an 09' dbl cab silver trd O-R. i was talking to the dealer and he gave me a price that i felt was a pretty good deal. i was talking to my wife she told me to get it if i wanted it to go get it, i hate to be selfish and rush into things so maybe yall could help me out!

    It must be nice to have that kind of money to simply burn. The double cabs sure are nice though....

    If you need the room, go for it. This week showed me I should have gotten the double cab :(

    My access cab is fine 90% of the time, but when you want to cart family around, the double cab is alot more comfortable for the back seat passengers, and the front seat passenger when he's 6'5" and 300 lbs...

    No pressure, but I would venture to say either pull the trigger by the 31st, or follow the directions below..........

    What did they offer you for your 08 as a trade in. If it's respectable and you feel your getting a free shake on the 09, I say go for it. I love my DC.

    X2 on that! If they are going to charge you more monthly and add a bunch of payments, I'd just wait for the re-designed model that will be coming out. Unless you have kids now or something that you would need the extra space! Hey but bottom line, your wallet, your money, who really cares what other people think! Do what you got to do!!!:eek:

    Keep the 08 for a few years or you are going to loose your ass on the trade.

    Is the 19,200 more than or what you owe? I wouldn't take a loss to get a vehicle 1 year newer.
