Ok so I need some advice. I've had my 2012 FX2 EcoScrew loaded Appearance Package in Sterling Grey for about 4 months now. I paid just over $31,000 for mine LOADED and it has about 13k miles. I love my truck, it is awesome. Everything I've ever wanted, except it's 2WD, and it is not Ruby Red.
So I'm cruising along and notice the local dealer has a 2013 Ruby Red FX4 on their lot, so I stop and check it out. And then the lightbulb appears. I wonder how much I can get for my truck. Well I go inside and tell the guy I'm interested in trading up to an FX4. His eyes light up and starts shooting numbers at me. Long story short they are going to give me $33,500 for my truck (more than I paid!!!) and will knock a huge chunk off the sticker for the '13. MSRP was right at $50k and he will bring it down to where out the door I'm only spending about $7,000 on a brand new equally loaded EcoScrew. I plan on getting that number even lower but even at that it would be almost $10k off MSRP.
What do you guys think? My truck was paid in cash so I'm not having to mess with financing of any kind. I really would like to have a 4WD, in love with Ruby Red, want the newer Sync, and the OEM HID's and I'm getting kind of tired of the FX Appearance Package..... Was cool at first but now..... Black dash pieces don't stay clean for more than 3 seconds..... Vinyl decals on side need to be scrubbed to get any road grime off.... Am I crazy or is anyone else behind me on this? Haven't given the dealer the yes or no on this yet, but they are eager to sell.
Of course, those whose opinion I wholeheartedly trust, please give me your honest input.

My beautiful truck as it sits right now.
And the Ruby Red FX4 I'd love to have...
Some photos I hijacked from some other forum members of identical trucks, because most dealerships can't take pics for crap.
