Good place to buy 2000 around Indiana?

Hey guys, I'm looking for some help on where to find a truck around the Indianapolis area. I am looking for a 2000 F-250 and can't find much on the internet. Does anyone know where a good website is or a dealer that is reasonably priced because the Ford dealers are high.
Thanks, Jordan

Why do you want a 2000? That really limits you to results on any search you do online when limited to a city only. I would suggest Used Cars, New Cars, Buy a Car, Sell Your Car - AutoTrader.com. You can really narrow down your search in a lot of areas. I would expand it out 50-100 miles. You should get many more results.

I want a 2000 because I am looking to spend no more than $16,000. I want leather and 4 door so for what I am looking to spend that is the year that would most likely be within that price range. I also want the 7.3 and from reading on here people say that 2000 is the best year for that motor.

16,000 should buy you a nice truck! The 2000 motor has forged rods, so if you mod the truck they will hold more hp then the pmr rods of 2001-03's otherwise they are the same motor. Good luck the search is almost as much fun as your first drive is going to be

Yeah there is lots of psd's on the road here in Michigan, but you need to be choosey as the winter road salt does a number on vehicles here. If you can, look for one that doesn't see the road salt in the winter. I found mine in Detroit, but I was lucky, as it wasnt driven in the winter here.
