What should I buy?
Okay, I currently have a 2002 F250 V10, with 275K miles on it and I am looking to get a F250 diesel with 150K miles or less. I have $19,000 to spend on the truck and would like to get something that will not be eating at my wallet with repairs right off of the bat.
I don't need a truck that is lifted or has a lot of special work done to it, since it will be only be a work truck. Decent mileage is key and I'd like it to be a 4x4 since I have been known to get it stuck while working every now and again. It also needs to be a crew cab.
Anyway, I am not sure if I should be looking at the '01 - '04 7.2L or 6.0L or a different year altogether. I have seen a few '06 - '08 trucks that fall into my description/price range, while some people price their '02s like they are made out of gold, so I am not sure what would be considered a good buy for that price range.
So here is the question. If you had $19K & needed a work truck with these restrictions, what would you be looking for?
Thanks for the help!!
