Truck looks good with 20" wheels & tires. Picked it up Friday night put 200 miles on it so far looks like avg fuel is 16 mpg so far. Hope it will get up to around 18 or so after break in not to bad for 5,000 pounds of sheet metal considering my Hyundai Sonata ONLY got 25 mpg.
Paid $21,079 + TTL only $2k more than the Dakota I was looking at. Alas the Dakota had the Infinity speakers and keyless that this one didn't, BUT this one has the room & speakers & keyless can be rectified when the Lo Jack goes in.
Ram Quad SLT w/ Lonestar Package, 4.7, auto

What is that? I've never heard of it. Wish I was getting that kind of mpg. I'm averaging 11 mpg over the last 3000 miles with QC Sport 2wd and 4.7l auto.

Includes the 20" wheels, foglights, antislip, 3.92 for about $750 after package discount.

Oh! I guess that's what they call it on the SLT w/out sport pkg. Mine is a sport so that's why I had no clue. Thanks for the education.

Listed for $31600, paid $26400. After 1000K miles I'm averaging 14.8 mpg with 50/50 city and highway, . I absolutely love this truck.
#7 of 428 not as good
May 10, 2002 (5:07 pm)
I didn't do as good as other posts
Sticker was $31,065.00
dealer disc. 2,500.00
com. rebate 300.00
paid $ 26,765.00
The big problem was that they did not want to give me anything for my trade. We were going back and forth for about 2 Hrs before it came down to being $300 apart, I stood up and started heading for the door when they caved.
So I got the NADA trade-in value for my truck which was a 2000 Silverado Ext. 4x4
#8 of 428 Still a good deal

Many of the prices you see on this site are from all over the USA, a couple of hundred dollars is pretty much irrelevant when your buying a $31000 truck. I don't know where you bought your truck, but from what I've been seeing on this site you still got a very good deal. You will love this truck!!!
By the way, why did you trade a 2000 Silverado, did you have a lot of problems?

I bought it in MA.
Nothing wrong with the Silverado, Its just when the new dodge came out, it was love at first site. The real four doors, the totally new design.
I had reservations since I had a bad experince with a Dakota years back. But I fiqured it was time to give dodge another shot.
I went over it with a fine tooth comb. This thing is flawless. And I have the 20" wheels which makes it that much more impressive.
