Default Largest Truck dealer

Where/who is the largest Dodge truck dealer in the U.S.? Looking to buy a new truck in '08-'09 and need to know where to go. My local dealers are a joke.

Dave Smith in Kellog Idaho, I bought my 2007 Ram fully loaded for $3700 under invoice right off the rail car. Definately NO hassle buying is what they advertise and it is true.

I personnally wouldn't ever buy a new truck ever again. Find out who repo's vehicles in your area. Most vehicles that get repoed can be purchased for pennies on the dollar.

As far as trying to deal. go to the dodge website build what you want and use the option to get a dealer quote. Also build it on Edmunds or Kelly Bluebook to find out the invoice price.

The dealer that gets closest to the invoice is where you want to deal at.
Step 1. the price you are trying to achieve is a purchase price under invoice plus you get the rebtes or known factory incentives.
Invoice is pretty close to what a dealer pays. He will get a "commision" or holdback (profit) paid to him by DC of about 3% of msrp when he sells a vehicle so he may or may not want to share it with you. Also there may be other incentives to the dealer but we will never know

Step 2. Stick to your guns at invoice or less. If a dealer won't sell at invoice he is crazy. I can walk into any dealership here in Milwaukee. tell them what truck I want ask them to show me the invoic, tell them I want it for invoice and every one of them will come back with a contract without batting an eye.

Now only if I could get a Viper that easy!

Integrity Dodge in Vegas is a much larger truck dealer than Towbin is. Dave Smith in Kellogg though I think is in fact the largest.

Do your homework...have them show you the invoice (Which also shows the holdback amount) and then arrange a price which gives up at least 50% of their holdback. (This might not work well on trucks that have sat on the lot for a long time) On a new order, which won't sit on the lot for more than a couple days, they should be willing to give up all but about $200-400 of the holdback.

The large dealers make their money from sales volume...so another truck out the door at any profit is a winning deal for them. You just have to let them know the deal you want up front.
