Looking for a diesl pickup, the closer to MD the better. Prefer a 1997+, F250/350 or 2500/3500 CTD. Only requirement is 4x4, anything else is a plus. Budget is around $12k. Shoot me a PM or email if you have something or know someone who does.
I know this is more than your stated budget but I'm selling a 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty XLT for $18K. Turbo Diesel, Automatic, Extended cab, Long bed, Red/Gray 2-tone with tan cloth interior. Pics here.

If it was a crew cab, I'd be keeping it! 2 car seats is a pretty tight fit. I've got one behind the passenger seat and the other in the middle. The middle seat gets turned around soon and it won't fit. It won't fit behind the driver's seat either because my legs are too damned long.

It was a little over budget, but it was 2-3 years newer and had 20-30,000 less miles than everything else that was in my range. All it took was a test drive to seal the deal.
The 7.3 motor is pretty much bullet proof and should easily go 300k before anything major needs done. The trannies need a little more TLC, but if properly maintained should go 200k.
