Not bad. You can get a lower/ base trim for around that new but the LTs seem to hover in the 40s.

I'm shopping for the same thing and don't really care for the higher trim levels but I really want factory blue tooth since I'm jabbering along most of the day in the truck.

As much as I love my truck I would be willing to sell her to you for a decent price. 15 Ram 6.4 Hemi, a touch under 59k miles. Pm if interested. The wife’s doing the Dave Ramsey thing so we wouldn’t mind getting out of the note early if we can. Just a thought.

Get a 2019 ram rebel 5.7 etorque - towing a capacity is 12500, it comes stock with airbags. Goes low when parked to climb in then raises when driving. Best driving pick up on the road.
Has 400lbs less towing capacity than f250 gasser, and it won't beat you to death.

the chevy 6.0 is not great on gas but it is probably one of the most reliable engines out there.

The 2017 easily gets 15 empty.Which is honestly no worse than its diesel counterparts. It’s the wife’s daily driver. We pull a 24 foot aluminum show cattle trailer LOADED all the time with no issues. Sure mileage might go down to 9 or 10 but...... my fuel is cheaper, oil changes are cheaper, no DEF or all those fuel system issues, and repairs when needed are a FRACTION of the diesel version. Oh and truck is 8k less to purchase. IMO unless you are pulling HEAVY loads almost daily there is absolutely no need for a diesel.


What rear end does your 2017 have?

Pm me the price and any pics you have. Not really looking right now but may be buying a bigger bumper pull travel trailer that may have me looking around for 3/4 ton trucks in the near future.
