I wouldn't say it was beat just from the seat pic, my seat has some wear to it on the side and it runs pretty good for a '99, better than the '04 chevy w/ half the miles I just got rid of. I'd go with the '00.

99 f 250 lariat 4x4 x-cab 7.3 --> SOLD
4" banks exhaust
AIS intake
zoodad mod
warn lockout hubs
285/75 16 Nitto Terra Grapplers

I'd say its a matter of what you intend on using the truck for, Crew Cab offers all the room and comfort you'll ever need, I just saw one around me, similar 2000, little better shape seats, 130k miles, sold for $7k...so I wouldn't offer anymore than that, as for the 97, I've always loved that look, screw the lack of HP, and go for the classic look...tough decision, If it were me I'd have to buy both

If possible, go look at the 2000 in person, as I said the crew cab is never a waste of money....you should be able find seats for it at a salvage yard if thats whats ailing the decision...
