    If it was 4wd it might be a good deal. Seems kind of high for a 2wd to me.

    Pretty average for a PR. If it were 4wd, it would be about $10k.

    Here

    Quick autotrader search of the sme features and junk (I know this is not scientific) shows that the average price is quite a bit higher.

    ^^^9 dealers and only one private party sale. A scan of about 50 CL private party ads will reveal the 2wd's can be had for less, and 4wd's are averaging about $10 ($9-11 usually). Dealers will always mark up higher because of offered financing.

    Not gonna argue with you. You are a master of internet auto sales pricing, I will humbly defer any further "Is this a good deal?" posts to you through PM so that you may ram thou mighty fist of knowledge up the butt of the unknowing masses who foolishly assume a truck priced 30% lower than NADA value is a "good" deal.

    That's pretty funny.

    Really, it IS funny.

    NADA is a great reference for sellers, while KBB is a good reference for buyers. For some reason, most of the NADA averages are substantially higher than KBB. I never understood that, but that's how it's always been. Weird.

    For "said" truck, it's not a bad deal. I wouldn't say it's a "steal" of a deal, but not bad. I'd say a really good deal now days is a DC 4wd for $10k. I happened across a few of those recently, and subsequently, the ads were gone within 24hrs, indicating that others realized the value of those deals.
