That's pretty much how I've done it in the past. Again, the rebates/incentives were my question marks. Also, I just received a call from a local dealer that has a new 2013 with the 5.0l v8 and the tow package, exactly what I was looking for. I mentioned earlier, the Jeep being the exception, we normally keep our vehicles 10 or more years so it being a year old is not much of a factor for me except for pricing. I know several on this thread earlier gave their opinion on what I should expect to pay for a new 2013 now, but I still can't get a good feel for it. More opinions would be great and a big help. How much would others expect to get off sticker for a new 2013 F150 now?

I never financed a vehicle with a dealer and hence I never qualified for their finance rebates. My last few vehicles had no rebates on when I purchased them. I wasn't sure the rebate/incentives, and the nice prices associated with them, were in lieu of negotiating. So should this be my process: determine what what my bottom line price would be without the rebates (as if they didn't exist), and then add the rebates on top of it to come up with a final figure.
