Opinions on what to buy!

i'm going to be trading in my lease on a diesel. looking at crew cabs and trying to be close to 250 a month or less. here are the three options i have found so far, based on mileage, price, and engine which would be best. Also if anyone know a good powerstroke mechanic in seattle area that be great to!
2001 Ford F250 Lariat, $14,995 - Cars.com

2000 Ford F-350 SD Lariat Crew Cab Long Bed 4WD 7.3L Turbo Diesel 4x4

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty SD 156 XLT 4WD - Everett WA - Bayside Auto Sales

I like the all white 350. Seems to be the cleanest of all three. I don't know the 6.0's pricing to well but for 9 grand I would be VERY cautious on that one. Maybe it's just me If you like the 01 250 I'd call and find out what tuner is on that truck and if it's a plug and play like super chips but doesn't come with the tuner plan on flashing the PCM for safety of the truck. If it has custom tunes plan on getting it reburned for peace of mind knowing EXACTLY what tunes you have. The 7.3's seem to be around the right pricing.

The 2001 looks pretty good, I prefer to buy stock vehicles as I know what parts and who is installing them when I lift or modify. Also the mileage was the lowest.
