Looking to buy a diesel within the next few months. So i'd like to get some ideas on what is availible.Also trying to keep the price under 6k. What i'm looking for is:

-1989-1997
-Any thing but a crew cab
-SRW (may consider duallys though)
-Auto
-4wd
-Decent shape so that i can drive it practically the day i get it. I don't mind some work because it gives me something to do in my free time, but im trying to avoid lots of rust.

So if you have anything like this please feel free to email me your price and pics at [email protected], or shoot me a pm. Thanks.

Pics on my webshots [urlhttp://community.webshots.com/user/carytowery?vhost=community][/url] but none with '97 parts installed as truck is still on the rack.
Will have a '95 HPOP so no drain back issues .

No body rust..CA truck all but 10k miles, some very minor dents on right side bed in front of wheel well not very noticeable at first glance gota love white. Typical surface rust only on frame seen in pictures.

I can take specific pics if you want.
I'm sure I forgot somethings

If you want a powerstroke you will have to look at the 94.5-97 trucks.

Im aware,88-94 have the 7.3 but aint turboed. mainly put that b/c i want a 7.3 but may consider an older 6.9. Thanks though.
There is a whole lot more than turbo or non-turbo different between them.
Total volume equaling 7.3 liters is about the only thing similar between the 95-97 powerstrokes and the older Ford 7.3’s, My Grandpa has a 91 or 92 F-350 7.3 5 speed with around 60K miles and that thing is weak, my truck stock would run/pull circles around it and gets better mileage doing it. The old injector pump driven 7.3’s were good but they don’t compare to a powerstroke.
