How far have you gone for a truck

Whats the furthest you guys have travelled for a truck, or any vehicle really? After doing searches on autotrader and various other sites, it seems that vehicles out west go for about half of what they do close to where i live in Ohio.

F250's and F350's ive found around me people and dealers are asking anywhere from 8 to about 12 grand on trucks with anywhere from 80K to 300K miles on them. searches that have turned up trucks that are further west are going for about half that with the same setup/miles.

I'd really love to find me a Crew Cab long bed but its seeming to find any that are remotely affordable i'll have to head a good bit of miles out there to find one

I drove almost 350 mi one-way to buy my F-150 that I had before my PSD. Only drove about 15 mi for the PSD though.
