For that price range you need to drop back into the late 90's early 2000's and most will have more than 100K miles unless you get very lucky. The reason why the prices are so high is the price of the new ones is redicliously high, and the dollar really isn't as strong as they tell you it is.


Trucks can last a very long time and everyone wants one or needs one for work which keeps prices up.


3-4k = 80's


they are expensive because: 1. If from a dealer, they make a living ripping people off- 2. if from a private party, everyone thinks that what they have is made of gold-


Simply put... supply and demand
