I hope you are in Texas or dont mind traveling. That maybe hard to find in some areas. It can be done, but you will have to do a little looking. What are you looking for, Crew Cab, regular cab? Long bed, short bed?

If your looking for a crew cab, i doubt its going to happen unless its been beat to you know where. Be prepared to be looking for a while.

You'd be better off looking for a 99-2000 7.3L. YOu can get 'em for cheaper and it will last you forever. AND THEY HAVE FORGED RODS!!!

At least your seeing the light and getting out of that hemi. Man them things are dogs without some $$$ pumped into them.

They are out there, be patient. I picked up a mint 2004 F-350 4x4 Lariat Extended cab for $21,700 with 80k on the clock. I didn't realize until I did some research that she needs head gaskets but it has 20k worth of warranty yet. Matter of fact, she's going under the knife on Tuesday. I had to drive 1,400 miles to get it but it was definately worth it (I flew down to Florida and drove it back to Michigan). I averaged 19.2 on the trip back with a heavy foot
