Remember younger guys like us, newer, bigger, nicer trucks are a lot higher on insurance. That's why I don't want to get newer than an 07 because insurance is high. You can get nice f250 used with less thank 100k miles for around 10k- 12 if you look
Exactly the way I think, but also take into consideration gas milage. It costs me a lot more $$$ than I expected to drive my F250 around town all the time

I dont regret buying it one bit, but remember when looking at the purchase price of any vehicle, you should consider what the insurance, maintenance, and gas will cost before you decide to buy. Don't max out your budget with the initial cost, save money for future gas and repairs so you can afford to drive your vehicle.

I didn't consider gas prices and the amount of miles I drive before buying my truck, so after the first month of paying $90/week to fill up the tank I almost thought it was leaking gas
