Thatís racist. They prefer to be called trucks of color.

Enjoy the new ride. Glad you found what you were looking for.

I would check out Enterprise Car Sales as well. With just a quick look I found multiple 1-3 year old 3/4 ton trucks in gas and diesel in white and black.

Looks like they were all mid level optioned F250 XLTs and Ram Big Horn 2500.

I would check out the other rental companies as well. If it wasn't my DD, I would also consider looking at a company that does fleet sales. Fleet vehicles are generally well maintained at least from a mechanical perspective. Good luck on finding that needle in a room full of needles!

I really like autotrader.com because you can put in distance from your zip code, color, year, make, model, max mileage, max price etc. I use it for buying and selling too.

Was looking for a 3/4 ton truck last summer . I live in the San Francisco Bay Area . Could not find anything with less than 100,000 miles for under $30k . Ended up getting a 2016 Chevy 3500 window van with 42k miles on it for $20k . I only tow a 5000 lb trailer so I did not want a diesel truck .

I have purchased 2 trucks from Car max. Both were shipped here from other states. I also found my last truck which is a 2014 F350 Diesel, I found it on Enterprise rental. I bought it in May of 19. It only had 10,250 miles on it. Got it for a fair price. Had it 10 months and now has only 32,475 miles on it. That may be the place to look.

My wife thinks the new truck is too big. But I just looked at the dimensions of a 2020 Chevy 1500 crew cab regular bed (not short or long) and it is actually just a skosh longer than my 2015 2500 HD regular bed. Man, these new 1/2 tons must be huge.

See if you can rent a Kodiak 5500 for a week and let her drive it around. Then switch back, the new truck will seem just right.

Might want to plant a bug in local banks, credit unions what you are looking for. They can on occasion be repossessed from someone that got in over their head on payments. They are usually very pleased to have a buyer waiting and able.

Try to be patient. If you know what you want, keep looking and be willing and able to get to it quickly. Or buy from a dealer that will ship to you.



I was looking at a couple of truck types, 3/4 ton Suburban and 3/4 or 1 ton crew cab short bed. Looked for several months and found a very nice Suburban, but couldn't get to it because of work. One day I just looked at Craig's list, a truck was only three miles away, so bought it that night.



A good friend wanted a very specific truck, a 1996 (?) Dodge Crew Cab Long Bed 1 ton single rear wheel with a 5.9 Cummins. He looked all over the country for several months. When one turned up, he took a day off work, flew half way across the country, paid cash and drove it home. ;-)

I got lucky, I think. The truck I bought I found on CarGurus. Turns out it was 2 miles from my house. That was cool.
