Good place to find quality trucks?

I am looking for a 96-97, 250-350 with the 7.3L powerstroke, ext. cab or crew. Does anyone know where i can look to find a good truck without spending an *** load?

Thank you,

Beau

I just saw a Sonic Blue 97 CC sb on CL. In Dubuque, IA in the search bar type "diesel" there's LOTS of them in there.

You can use Searchtempist to search craiglist also, works great. That 97 CCSB is in Wi, they want 16k for it...They're always overpriced. Inventory

craigs is a good place. and be patient. never used searchtempist but thats an idea. and Google will site search as well when you enter the site term. but it may cache slower than tempist...

i try and stay away from dealers. i can read individuals better, and chances are the dealer wont know maintenance history either. when you start looking search here or ask what to look for. many have posted the questionbefore and if you can check it all there is a good chance you have a good truck.
