Default Looking for a used Ram 2500/3500. Any dealers out there?

Looking for a 2014 and up Ram. I know what I want. Any dealers, wholesalers or brokers with connections? Thanks.

I'd just tell you to go to TruckTrader.com filtering for 250 miles.

With the rising prices of light diesel 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, the used diesel prices asked are out of sight. Many people just go for new trucks.

Go to dealer websites, and they either have stripped commercial trucks or overloaded ultra expensive trucks. I'd like to have one a little more equipped in the middle.

One superlative auto dealer is a short flight away from you--east of Atlanta in WInder. They're Akin Ford Chrysler Jeep Ram. The trick to a good price is to get Brad Akin in on the deal. Sales managers try to go around him so they can make some money. At one time, they had 750 diesels on the lot--Fords and Rams. They also carry every body in stock--roll backs, utility bodies, etc.

I can help you but I'm in SC if that's a deal breaker.
Feel free to send me details on what you're looking for. I will be glad to see what I can come up with- wranglerfarm at gmail dot com
I'm a dealer/broker and have connections with a new dodge dealer, enterprise (wholesale side) and the entire nationwide auction network(s).
I'm also a sponsor here.

Buddy of mine has bought a few Ram diesels now, all from the same place. Big O Dodge in Greenville, SC. I have no affiliation with that or any dealership, just passing on his experiences. He and his wife looked for 6 months and shopped the whole nation, Big O
apparently had the best prices out there.

New truck just isn't going to work price wise. I don't want or need a new one and don't want the new price.

Looks like a done deal for me. Getting a relatively low mile Ram 2500 out of Missouri. Having it shipped here. Price was $4K to $6K less than every identical truck within 700 miles. Ford dealership trade in made me a fair deal and I am buying it. Just closing this thread. I appreciate the help.

Don't have it yet. The truck is 1000 miles away and being delivered. It is a RAM with the trim a different color. I would prefer 1 solid color but it is used so can't be as picky.

Curious as to what you bought and what the price was. I have a 14 2500 diesel and curious as to resale. Thanks

If it does not work out I just got in a 2016 F-250 Diesel crew. Good luck with the new truck.
