I did not go with the above deal. I am working on a few other options. Can anyone comment on what they paid for a similiar truck? 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT CTD Quad cab 4x4. I am seeing around 37,100-37,400 based on MSRP of 46-47,000. What MF, residuals are you getting for this truck?

Greetings nuhuskers97. The best way to negotiate a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that gives it to you calculate your monthly payment using Chrysler Financial's buy rate lease money factor. You should be able to negotiate an outstanding deal on the Ram Pickup that you are interested in. The light vehicle market in the U.S. is very slow right now in general and there is intense competition within the full-size pickup segment from General Motors' and Toyota's newer models, not to mention the segment's traditional volume leader the Ford F-Series. If I was in the market for a Ram right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of right around dealer invoice or even below (there is some dealer cash out there) minus the $500 bonus cash that is available on Regular Cab or $1,000 on Mega / Quad Cab models, minus the $5,000 lease cash that is available on it.
As far as this truck's lease program goes, Chrysler Financial's money factors and residual values for the Ram Pickup vary by cab type. Are you interested in a Regular Cab, Quad Cab, or Mega Cab?

Hi. Thanks for the reply.
I was in the market for a quad cab. I ended up turning my lease in 7 payments early and leased into another Ram 1500 SXT Quad Cab 4x4. The dealership paid off my lease and I got a new 27 month, 12k mile, no money down, they paid my first payment and transferred my bed cover and nerf bars for $339 a month.
I'm hoping that was a good deal??? Other dealerships I went to had higher monthly payments with less miles. This dealership jumped at this so I'm guessing I may have been able to get it for a little less per month......
I got a total of $7000 off MSRP ($5000 cash, $1000 bonus and $1000 lease loyalty). I hope March doesn't have a better deal!

I saw the lease special of $249 for a Ram 1500 SLT for 10,500 Miles for 27 months and contacted an internet salesman about a particular truck. He told me, for the particular truck with an MSRP of $36,500, the lease would be around $265 after taxes with $4000 due at signing. He said the residual would be $18,257.
I initially didn't want to lease a truck, because I wanted to mod it but this sounds like a decent deal. I planned on buying a used truck to keep my monthly at under $300. Is there something I am missing to this? I should be able to lease it for the 27 months than get a loan and buy it at $18,257 or walk away. It seems like a pretty good deal, just wanted opinions

My MSRP was $34,500. I got $7000 off in rebates, bonus cash and lease loyality. I didn't put anything down and they made my first payment which is $339 for 27 months and 12,000 miles a year. I want to say my residual is around $18k.
The difference between $339 and $265 is $74 a month. If you take that times 27 months it only comes out to about $2000. I would think putting $4000 down to keep your payments lower seems like a little too much to me. I've never liked putting money down on a lease because I feel like I'm throwing it away then unless you plan to purchase the vehicle after the lease is up. That's just my opinion though.
I would definately shop around if you haven't already. One dealership (which I almost went with) was offering $360 a month with only 10,500 a year. I walked away and by Monday their offer was down to $330 a month. I ended up going to 3 different dealerships and actually worked a deal with the 3rd dealership over the Internet and by phone before actually seeing the vehicle.

#69 of 103 Current Ram 1500 Lease Terms?
May 12, 2008 (8:10 am)
I am looking for the current DCFS lease terms for a 10,500 mile 36 month lease both for a SLT Quad Cab 4x4 and a Laramie Quad Cab 4x4 (if they are different).

I am now being told that there are no lease deals exist for 36 months. Only 27 months. Hmmm...
But I am getting 12K off the MSRP. So that part is good. Now working the leasing terms.

So glad to have found this forum!
Need some help. I see nuhuskers got a great deal on his dodge and am trying to do the same.
We are also in Nebraska...zip 68788,
We are beginning negotiations on a Dodge Ram and just looking for any advice we can get. We are interested in a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab SXT. The msrp is 34825. We know there is currently 5500 available. How do you find out what the dealer's invoice price is? Would also like to get the residual and money factor.
Nuhusker...might need to find out what dealer you went through to get as good of a deal as you did...
