code reader

So I suppose its time to ask my first question. What code readers work well for my truck. I'm looking for something straight forward, nothing crazy special. Under 50$? Something I can view and clear codes with.

2004 F350 4x4 6.0L turbo diesel

Any reccomendations? Maybe something that carried by autozone or pep boys so I can pick it up in the morning?

Thanks everyone!
