pickup trade -- Good deal?

4 posts in this topic

I am trading my 04 f150 XLT with 85,000 to the dealer. It has mechanical issues. Crack shaft in back ordered for months.

I am getting a 07 lariet chrome package with 31,000 for 14,700 trade difference. Is this a good deal? It looks like it to me.

Thanks

a ford dealer up here had a bunch of 06 f 150 4x4s Ex Cab. loaded 25k to 60k nice trucks for 14,999.00 I have a 03 and thats worth that much. I would look around.Now is the time to buy a truck if you need one, but you wont get much for one you have. Good Luck

I don't think that's too bad. Check out some of the auto sales websites and see what they're advertised at. Then figure out an

average price and go from there. You can pretty much throw out the blue book pricing in this market. Or maybe you want to put a junkyard motor in the old one then peddle it. The Lariet package is a little harder to find and will bring more than an XLT or STX.

Is that the price you've haggled down to? or is that the first price you were "offered"?

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
