Default Trading truck in next week.

Well I found a Jeep Jk that I can't live without. The dealer has made me the generous offer of $15k trade in for my truck which I owe $19k on I thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone wanted a good deal on a truck. Obviously I would love to get what I owed on the truck... but I would consider any offer above the dealership offer.

Here is the details on the truck.
07 GMC 2500 HD Ex-cab . 6.0L /6L80 109k . Tow package with integrated brake controller and tow mirrors, cloth seats, factory remote start. Runs and drives great, perfect truck in all ways.

Call or text me if you have any questions.
Thanks, Nic

Yes this truck is beautiful, I get compliments on it all the time. Unfortunately my vehicle stable is getting full and I dont feel like I use this truck enough to justify keeping it around.

Also it has BFG AT's on it now.

I had the same thought but didn't want to be the first one to say it.

There would be no way in hell I would trade that off for only 15k. Its worth what you owe. Just my opinion, GLWS.

Last I sold my 2006 Z71 1/2 ton ECSB with 70k on it for over 16k, and it was nice and clean just like yours.

God damnit! These insane deals from crazy people always come up when I am NOT in a position to buy it.

I would drive that truck until it fell apart. It's perfect.

That truck is gonna be on the dealer's lot 2 weeks afte you trade it in for 25k. You really want that JK you should get serious about selling your truck and make yourself an extra 5-7k easy.....

For you to trade that truck in for $15,000 has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen someone do from a financial standpoint.

Wait and sell the truck privately. Once it's sold go buy your JK. If the one you want is gone you can find another.

Well its not a done deal... thats why I am posting it here. Im buying as much time as I can to sell the truck. It literally makes me ill to think about letting the truck go for $15k... especially since I know Kickstand is correct. I will drive by in 2 weeks and it will have a $25k tag in the window. I have been putting the word out hopefully someone is in a position to buy the truck from me. Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it!

No JK until you sell that beautiful GMC!

God I wish I had the money! Throw a topper on the back and that truck would be 100% exactly what I need.

While I think you are getting lowballed a little bit I don't think it is work 19,000 as a trade in. You could easily sell it for that. The only reason I am saying anything is because you guys think that there is going to be $10,000 markup if it goes on the lot. If this dealership can sell it for that when all the trucks around them are selling for 19-20k then I want to work there, I would be rich!!

Here is a current market report on your truck:

Although I exaherated a little. I doubt im too far off. Get that truck listed all over for 21kthe and I bet you get real close to asking or at least payoff.

You beat me to it. I was thinking the exact same thing.

OP, listen to these guys. You'll get much more if you sell to a private party. The dealership offers you so little for a reason.

I don't like the fender flares, but that's just me. Very clean truck though.

You're a gay.

They actually give the truck a much much much more aggressive look.

Yeah the flares were on it when I bought it. I live on a dirt road and they do actually help keep it clean. A couple of my buddies hate them as well though... I like them cause they make it look different from the million other trucks. Going to put it on CL today and see if I have any interest.

If it had a slightly bigger tire and a slightly offset rim they wouldn't look nearly as bad. Either way it's still a nice truck and should sell for at least what he owes.

That said, just think about how long it takes you to make $4k. That should be enough motivation to hold off on the JK and try to sell the truck first.
