While that's a nice truck, it lacks the Max Trailer Tow Package and the Spray in Bedliner that many other demos have, and they still qualify for the tax credit with an MSRP under $80k.

It has a spray in bedliner, not sure why it isn't listed. Good info though.

My slot finally came up to order my lightning but I'm hesitant because the MSRP is now above the 80k tax credit limit and it just bothers me to pay that much more.
I have essentially the same vehicle and color. Definitely buy it.
I am curious that you say your slot came up. Did you get the invite to order in the past week or is this from an earlier wave back in Jan or Feb? My understanding is that the wave 8 invites for March have not gone out yet. I got an invite to order back in December and on my account page the order window has not opened back up.

They added after delivery, the original order maker was anxious to get it produced and delivered quickly, funny though the truck was built last Summer, been sitting waiting for you all this time, go get her!

Build prior to the Sticker consolidation date of August 26 2022

My wave was January, sorry I didn't mean to infer I had just gotten it.

Its a good deal at that price..*appears* like it will qualify for tax credit if you otherwise are eligible.

I say buy it if it works for you.

Consult a tax professional regarding tax credit, but as others have said(and I agree) tax credit appears in play

Ask about extended bumper to bumper for it being a demo. It should be possible to get 42months/42k miles, though I don't know the exact details. Others here have gotten it, I'm still pestering my dealer about it. The warranty start date is the date they put it into service as a demo, so you'll lose that time for connected services and warranties.

That said, I don't regret buying mine one bit. I couldn't find anyone willing to go down to msrp, so you have a great price! Get a 240v outlet installed to use with the mobile charger (should be in the truck) while waiting for SunRun to ship the charge station pro (one month in they still haven't shipped mine).

I've only had one problem, the lumbar on the driver seat doesn't work. Have an appointment on the 28th to get it fixed.

I bought it today! It came with the 42 month/42k warranty, now considering getting extra from the Granger deal here on the forum. To be clear that is not on top of the 3 yr/36k MI one that it comes with the vehicle right? It's just parallel?

Congrats!

If you don't mind, how did the dealer do the extension? Mine is useless in that regard.

It's 42 months/42k from when it was placed into service.

Sorry I mean if I buy the additional PremiumCare from Granger. Why do they even sell 36k/3 yr if the manufacturers bumper to bumper is that long and included in the sale?...
