Default 3/4 ton Service Truck

I'm looking for a used 2000-2005 3/4 ton work truck with service bed and rack. No high mileage (under 120,000), Ford or Chevy. I'm in no hurry, just want an extra truck. Can't find anything worth a crud on E-bay or Truck trader. Everything being sold used, is practically new trucks. Anyone sees anything could you give me a PM or something.

Do you have Budget used car and truck sales. They always have a good selection.

They have them around here. Usually several in stock. They are all white in color and look in pretty good shape. I just sold an f-350 with around 70,000 miles on it...sorry. Check Budget.

Is there a reason you are looking into a 3/4 ton?
We have found the 1 ton to be the better bang for the maintenance buck.
Brakes, tranny, suspension, etc.
Also, diesel will produce around 50% more mpg

I figured since 3/4 and 1 tons are very simular, I would not need to list both. 3/4, 3/4HD, or 1 ton are the same basic truck as far as i'm concerned. One thing I don't want is truck with front leaf springs like the Ford Superduty.

Yea, they have the same body, but the suspension and brakes are different.
