    Auctions , scan the paper. You dont say what size , f 350 up to a f 650 can be under CDL. Remember this when looking the determining factor of whether a truck is under CDL is the Manufacturers gross vehicle weight rating , NOT WHAT YOU TAG THE WEIGHT AT Motor vehicles.

    What engine do you want ? Trans etc . A good place to look is hertz pensky and buy a cab and chassis and have a dump body installed after the fact. Always buy more truck than you think you will need , I have a International , 25,000 gvw 7.3 auto trans , low profile , great truck. Got it at auction for 6 grand , 160000 miles .

    We just picked up a 89' F800 dump at a local township auction for 2,750.00 The truck has 37k original miles and is in pretty nice shape. For that price I don't think I can go wrong.
