Default Cheap Diesel Truck Wanted

I need to find a cheap diesel, miles arent really a big deal as long as they are under 180K. I own a house in a remote area and want to leave a diesel there with a plow in it. Me and my neighbor just want something decent but cheap, like under 5k. So if you know of anything let me know. IT must be 4 whl drive if it is single rear wheel. If its a dually, 2wd is ok and it cant be older then 1990 (or so he says lol)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The early-90's Ford F350's are pretty good trucks. You can probably pick up one with a diesel in it, for around $9K-13K

Unfortunately, Cheap and Diesel do not go together..

With diesel prices what they are today, keep your eyes peeled and be ready for a good deal! there will undoubtedly be some people dumping them on the market before too long.

That's one thing I don't understand. Diesel up here is more than premium in some areas............... ;?

Chris is right - no such thing as a "cheap diesel".

You might try looking through Truck Trader or keep your eyes peeled at the local ads for used vehicles. SOMETHING will turn up eventually.

Yeah ive been looking, I have three Dodge Ram's that I own but they are all show trucks and they are always garaged, while I do plow with a few of them I do not want to keep one up there. Figured maybe I could find a cheap F250 or something. Oh well ill keep looking, keep your eyes peeled

Thanks

You need to stick to the 4x4 if you are going to plow. I currently have a f350 2wd and love it for towing but it sucks if you get it on a slick surface or off road, and yes I have a locking diff. The only way you could plow with this thing would be to fill the bed full of rocks or sand all winter.

I know that when I was looking for a diesel truck and prices I search North America far and wide........I couldn't believe the price differences, they were HUGE! Don't buy from Colorado is all I can say.

I realize what I need to plow, I have three Cummins powered rams with 9's that I plow with, also have two mack's with sanders and 10' highway duty. I just want something cheap to leave at the house and let rot in the garage. Its a pretty steep driveway and I never have to use 4wd in my duallies, I just drive up it lol. Even while doing city plowing with my trucks rarely do I actually have to go into 4wd, usually 2wd is plenty. There is so much weight to these trucks.
