First welcome to the ORG!
Second, don't rush into buying a truck. I looked for 9 months for one before I found one that I was happy with. As Hank already told you, definitely pay attention to the transmission.
See if it was ever modified with anything. If so, did they use a monitor to make sure their temps didn't get to high?
Check the oil, see if they did good maintanence.
Just look it over, was it well taken care of?
Just think about other expenses for the truck...does it need tires, is the windshield cracked...etc.
I paid $9,000 for an early 99 with 186,000miles about 6 months ago. Of course it was already modded out, VERY well taken care of, oil just changed, leather seats, Short Bed, 4x4, crew cab(4 door). I found some cheaper, but they were total piles of trash.
If I think of anything else that might help you, I'll come back and let you know!
