I’m kinda partial to my early 99 but 99.5-2000 is probably the best, kinda depends on what you plan to do with it and how much you plan to spend.

If you want the most reliable get an 03 with a 7.3. That'll get you a 5 speed over the ole 4 speeds. If you want 6.0 go 05-07. The 6.4s are still new, I wouldn't get because rumors that its a temp engine.

+1 for the early 99.

Any 7.3 from 95-2000 is the best for me. But like he said, "what you plan to do".
