buy a 99 or 2000 for 10k to 15k add a 38r and some 238s and you will be in the 500 ish HP range. next get a BTS trans (if auto) and you will have a good solid truck. BTS is about $4k turbo/injector combo about $4k so you will be under your 30k mark.

If you get a 2001-2003 you will need to put forged rods in there or find a forged motor to put in there. cost for that is all over the board depending on who has what. Figure maybe 5k for the motor and rebuild.
