You can get a 99-02 Ford F250 with the 7.3 Diesel for around 10K. Great, reliable truck. Pay cash and have the good feeling of no truck payment. Truth be told, in THIS ECONOMY, if you have 10K in cash, you could probably buy a truck from a private seller listed at $14,000. Just show him the money and I betya he gives it up. Just food for thought. Newer/nice trucks are GREAT, but in 2-3 months the novelty wears off, and the payments are still there.
