I always go with the "slightly used" variety of vehicle. Any car or truck loses it value at the fasted rate during the first couple years of its existence. So I always look for the 2-3 year old kind. Still get a warranty, and basically a pretty new ride (unless its got a ton of miles).

Congrats on the new truck. I always liked the dual gas tanks.

Screamin' deal - better truck than my stripped '96 F250 XL & far cheaper than the money I just spent on a '04 F350 dually

sounds like a bargain,In the midwest that truck would sell easy (still being fleet vehicle) for $4500-6000 .
