I found this board useful, thanks.
I spent a boat load of time researching as this the first new car I have purchased.
There is no need to purchase the consumer reports new car buying guide, edmunds offers the same information for free... my mistake.
I purchased a new 2006 4x4 f-150 lariat super cab:
MSRP approx. 39,500
Invoice approx. 35,350
Sale Price 29,450
$100 over invoice after rebates. I could not get them any lower on the "relation to invoice" price and they were unwilling to dip into the dealer hold back.
** Make sure to check the regional manufacturer to dealer rebates, they held out on that one until I indicated I knew about it **
I had negotiated in AZ to invoice price , half of the dealer hold back plus rebates on a XLT Super Crew.
As far as competition, I had a tough choice between the Ford and the Titan... definitely worth a test drive.

In SoCal I see ads for FX4 supercrews for about what you paid. Its a good price, and a lot of truck for the $. If I was in the market for a pickup, I'd find it hard to justify spending $10-15k more for one of those new silverados.

Hey, soap, I live in Houston, and I would love help from you in buying. You are a true wizard at getting a good deal. Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know about a true wizard. Your going to get your best deal on a 2006 model if you can find one with the options you want. Dealers will be looking to move these off the lots. I spend my week searching online at all the local dealers in my area for trucks that I want. Then Sunday when they are closed I go scout out all the dealerships and see which trucks are truly still on the lots. Once you know the truck is there go to www.nada.com and configure that exact truck with options to find your invoice price. That is usually the target you are going for. However, if they have current dealer discounts and rebates going on you want to figure those into your price. Basically have a realistic number that you want to pay when you walk in and don't budge. Don't be cocky or anything just let them know you are ready to buy right now for this price etc... I hope this helps you in your quest for a new vehicle.

Just bought a new 2007 F-150 XLT 4X4 Supercrew.
5.4 L engine
Black platform running boards
Electronic shift on the fly
sliding rear window
35.7 gal fuel tank
Prem cloth captains chairs
Sat radio (6-months)
Price Paid before tax + trade-in: $26,661
Dealer: Scarsdale Ford, Scarsdale, NY)
Price paid included $3000 factory rebate and additional $1000 invitational rebate direct from Ford Motor Co. The Ford invitation to take an additional $1000 off the best deal I could arrange came in the mail to my home. It seems to have been precipitated by my exploration of F-150's at Ford.com and may also reflect that I was a current Ford owner (Taurus) before purchasing the truck. Hope this is helpful.

CORRECTION: that was a new 2007 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 Supercab, not Supecrew.
