I know what you mean about prices! I'd searched all over for a Magnum RT or SRT (preferred) and couldn't find hardly anything for less than 18K for an RT loaded and 20-21K for a private party SRT. I ended up paying $17K to a dealer for my 05 Magnum RT with 37K miles on it, but in EXCELLENT shape with ALL the options... Still kinda wish I had the SRT. I did get the extended 7/70 warranty too.
