I bought a 97 F-150 4.6L V8, with 123,000 miles and I LOVE IT! I only paid $3,500.00 so the deals are there... Oh, no rust, no fluid leaks, nada!

Check Craigslist daily! A few times a day is important... Also knowing how to deal and talk is as well... Find someones unfortunate dilemma into your fortunate opportunity. Cash talks!

i have a 98 chevy z71 that had 256,000KM's on it. not it has 318,000 and it blows zeros on e tests still. i bought it for 5 grnad canadian almost 2 years ago now. they were worth 10 at the time. now a days around here their probably like 4500-5. like they said, its not the mileage. i would rather buy a truck with 300,000kms on it then one with 90,000 on it when the 300,000 one has been taken care of properly and the lower mileage one was abused and not taken care of.

I think the condition of the truck is more important than the mileage. Compared to buying a full vehicle, engines are cheap...especially if you can do your own work.

I have an 01 Dodge I bought with 70k on it for $8k. The body and interior was (and still is) in perfect condition. It now has 140k on it and when this engine finally goes, I plan on replacing it. Even if I spend some extra money for a built crate engine, it will still cost a quarter of what I paid for the truck in the first place.
