Well first off to Powerstroke.org! I guess really thats up to you and what you want to spend! Give us some info on what your looking for ie: 4x4, automatic, years your looking at, creature comforts you can live without! I guess you need to figure out what you can afford first. Diesels are costlier to maintain and run. Insurance is higher fuel is costlier, but if you can afford one by all means this is a great place to get yourself educated before you make the purchase.

I would say your best bet would to look at a 2000 or newer 7.3. Reliability is great and they are very modable ( is that word ). Then decide if you want an auto or standard, crew cab or ext, 250 or 350, xlt or lariat,2wd or 4wd

My best advise is for you to take your time get one in your price range. Since you are new to diesels.....GET THE TRUCK LOOKED AT. There are some people out there that will take advantage of somebody that doesn't know.

I'm looking for a regular cab, automatic, 4x4, f-250 or f-350 doesn't matter. XL I don't need anything fancy inside. YEAR???? What would be a good year?
1998? What do you think this would cost? How much more costlier are they to maintain?
