    With the price gouging and how close it is to the release date this seems fine to me. Congratulations! Glad to see I’m not the only one not getting an Army Green Pro

    Short preface--- I am an accountant and the following will give you a small glimpse in how my mind works on such questions. :cool:

    Depends on what your time is worth. If you mean 6 hour drive is 1 way then you are looking at a 12 round trip drive. Which could easily mean after in dealership time anywhere from 14 to 20 hour day, assuming of course you drive in process the paperwork and drive home.

    You save $2068 less fuel roughly $135 so $1933 or 96.68 to 138/hour depending on dealership, fuel, and potty time (2 - 6 total hours)
    If you eat 3 times while on the road to and from, it goes to 1873 or 93.65 to 133/hour with the same variable time assumptions
    Add in a hotel stay... and it drops to 88.65 to 126/hour or less, again assuming the same time variables and not accounting for any time spent in the hotel as if you bought local you would likely spend the same time-ish asleep.

    This is of course going on the assumption that you would have to pay full MSRP if you got the same truck locally, are traveling alone, and driving a trade-in up. Adding a copilot and/or rental then begins to decrease the hourly quickly.

    Bottom line, if you are pleased with the savings and are willing/happy to spend your time driving 6-12 hours it is great. After all travel CAN be enjoyable, lots of stuff to see, time to think, etc. If you are married/involved, take your significant along, go to dinner, catch a show or some sites local to the dealership and call it a get-away while getting a new truck. I have driven hours to and into the keys, had nice alone time with my wife, but did not bring a new truck home. It was well worth the time. Would have been better if I got a new truck, boat, or something but It was great!:cheers:

    Go get your truck and enjoy it!!:burnrubber:

    Flew up to Washington State and drove back almost 900 miles home in the same day to pick up mine. The savings and the manual transmission made it worth it, the extra paperwork from state to state was a little bit of a drag though. To each either own though.

    $4k off msrp on a 2020 model just hitting dealer lots is a pretty good deal.

    That drive though! You couldn't get the local dealership to price match or at least come close?

    Looks like mine came in today! Now I’ll have to go argue with them about taking off the predator steps I didn’t order...

    Well, they are removing the steps and adding the remote locking tailgate (have to come back to get it installed) I wanted originally. Also came with P2 vehicle protection, whatever that is. $47,800 is what I’m paying.

    Nice, happy to hear they're removing the steps. Are they charging you for the locking tailgate? Can almost guarantee they're going to just install a pop n lock. If they're not including it for free, I recommend @KTJO 4x4's tailgate lock kit here on the forums.

    Your dealer didn't want to do negotiation before ordering? That's what mine wants to do, order then negotiate either.

    Not bad at all. Bit less than I was expecting.

    You buying down south or one of the metro OKC dealers?
