Ok, I got my responces on the 2000 ford... I think I am pretty afraid of fords now, lol. Today I went out and drove a few trucks and I think found the one I want. I still want to bring it here and see if anyone has expierence with this model or engine or just has opinions! It's a 1993 (yeah it's old...) Chevy 2500, 2 wheel dr, Automatic, V-8 6.2 Diesel, 48,000 miles, yes that's not a typo! 48,000! Currently it has a flat bed on it, bare bones stock interior, which is fine by me for a work truck. I have driven it 20 or 25 miles, everything seens to be in very good condition. It was a government truck, even has a "US Property" tag under the hood (no it's not painted camo, lol) They have the price at $10,000. I ran a KBB and NADA they list it (retail) at $5,125 and $5,925 respectively. I honestly thought the price on the truck was going to be right on but now I know they are way high. Hopefully they will work with me on that otherwise I will be continuing on my quest... Thanks for any info all!!!
