You must have been looking at a loaded Lariat with a diesel, because I can get a extended cab f-250 wide body 4x4 gas for $33,000.

I get a mopar discount so I can get a Ram 2500 crew cab 4x4 gas with a snow plow prep for $37,000.

I can't remember the exact number for the Chevy, but a regular cab 8ft bed 4x4 6.0 snow plow prep was in the range of $41,000.

I checked out Tundra and they were in the high $30's as well.

I personally don't run Ford's and I never plan to.

There is an Old Blue Chair for each and every one of us, we just have to find it.

2006 GMC Sierra 2500hd crew cab
BOSS 8'2" Power V
Hustler X-one 60" 3 bin bagger
Toro Proline 36" wb w/t-bar controls
Toro 22"
Shindaiwa T254, Echo trimmers, chainsaws, pole hedge trimmer, pole saw, hedge trimmer
Shindaiwa 633 and Echo 760LN

I'm on my 5th red F150, having just replaced the 99 with a 2011 I found with only 6 thousand miles. You take your time, and use the internet to your advantage, and you will get a nice price. Gotta shop multiple states/dealers. As to the original question, I don't even remember what year my first truck was, let alone what I paid for it! LOL Here's the new rig.

plywood fits easily. just let down the tailgate and use a rope tied down to keep it from sliding out the back.
