It was my dad who turned me onto diesels. When I was a kid (About 10 years old), my dad had a 96 or 97 flatbed 7.3. It may have not had THAT much power (Not near as much as mine does now.) But at such an impressionable age, that thing was the strongest truck I've ever seen, and I wanted it. Unfortunately, he sold it right before I turned 15, but I wanted one for myself ever since.
As far as looking for a truck, a lot of it is common sense. Something I would highly recommend, though... Take someone else with you, they don't need to know a whole lot, but for me, when I'm looking at a vehicle I'm excited about, I tend to overlook very obvious things that I shouldn't, not because I DON'T notice them, but because I want the vehicle enough that I just don't care as much as I should.
