Need help looking for a new truck

Hello, I recently was in a bad accident, broke my femur and tibia and damaged my truck so bad the insurance totaled it so now i got money to buy a new truck. I have pics of it and ill upload if anyone's interested.

Anyways back on topic, I'm 16 and I got lucky on the find for my truck I did have as my Dad found it from a friend that recently heard about it. This time I have to find it myself but I am having trouble getting some decent listing for what im looking for. Was hoping some people might have some suggestions on sites i might look at. Here is some info that could help:
Price range: 5-7k
Area Range: I live in Connecticut but my father offered to travel as far as Florida to pic it up if i get a good deal/truck i really like.
Interests:
F-350 Powerstroke
Regular/extended cab
Non-dually
Diesel
Under 200k miles
1996-2001

Any and all help i would really appreciate, for now im just gonna continue searching through what i can.

Sorry to hear that man. You should check out Autotrader.com. I look at the years and price range ur looking for and found about 30 trucks on there. Might want to take a look. Also give ebay a look. and there is a Trucks for sale on here. Good Luck on finding you a new truck.

I found all my best picks on autotrader. Ebay is good, but the best trucks are in TX and AZ. I ended up flying to Miami and drive my truck home.

Yea the site seems really organized and nice, i put in my options and came up with 186 possibilities so im gonna be sifting through those for a while. Wish their was a way to eliminate the crew cabs and non powerstrokes but oh well. Yea the insurance offered us 20$ a day for a rental car so driving somewhere and picking it up isnt really a big deal, right now just gotta find the truck i want.

EDIT: I missed the more search options so i made some changes and that should help eliminate some of the non-interests.
