    Nice truck. My '14 2500 6.7L Laramie 4x4 was less than that sticker. Jeez they are proud of them these days.

    It was a hard choice for me between the Delmonico red, solid black, and the granite grey. But end the end the black was to much and the red was just a theft signal so the granite was the best of the options.
