Can you even buy a half reliable pickup for under 1k anymore???

Iíve been pokin around a few places looking to get a pickup to run around town in, so Iím not burnin my high dollar diesel and to have a spare when I have to make repairs to the ol go to. Havenít found much of anything that runs or could even be legal on the road for under 1k. Is it that Iíve set my bar to low? I remember buying pickups for less than 500$ to go down the road in.

Very doubtful. You'll have to put money into on almost a daily basis, just to keep it running if you managed to find one for $1000.

You may be able to find an older toyota pickup with the 22re engine for a grand. Those engines are extremely easy to work on and are reliable.

As for a fullsize truck, i really doubt you'll find anything that runs for $1000.

2007 F250 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4. Lots of upgrades, but not enough. It's tall, too tall. Yes, I'm obviously compensating for something.

UPGRADES:
EGR Delete, RedHead Steering Gear, Blue Spring Upgrade, ARP Studs, (Let's not mention this manufacturers name) Coolant Filter, (Let's not mention this manufacturers name) Blue Intercooler Pipe and Elbow Upgrade, Cold Air Intake, One-Up Offroad Traction Bars, XD Wheels and Nitto Ridge Grappler 37" Tires, LED Lights all around, 2013 Tailgate, 2008+ Power Mirrors, Pro-Comp XXX Dual Front Coilover Suspension, Custom Bedliner Sprayed Rocker Panels and Fender Flares, Amerihood Tpe E-Style Ram Air/Heat Extraction Hood, CompuStar Alarm with Remote Windows, Remote Start, and much more!
More upgrades to come, including Singer Alternator, and other engine upgrades.

NEW Custom Bumpers with Tire Carrier! Dual Winches!

Last year I got a 98 Dakota 4x4 extended cab, 5 speed, with no rust on the body, and 160K on it for $1000. Good deals are out there if you look, I have been using that truck for the past 6 months to drive to work, and I have only had to do some minor things like a basic tuneup, ball joints, wheel bearings, and I put a new clutch in because the throwout bearing went out.

00 f250 ext. cab, lb, 4x4, 158,000, zf 6 speed, South Bend 1944ofe, 4 in lift, 315/75/16 Courser MXTs, rear Detroit locker, PMF traction bars, Full Force 180/80 injectors, php hydra, Riff Raff frx, Riff Raff billet compressor wheel, Dieselsite pre pump kit, Dorman up pipes,IAH delete, ccv mod, 6637 filter, Auto Meter gauges, scan guage 2, 4 in diamod eye straight pipe 6 in tip.
