Narrowing my truck choices down need input.

So I've been looking for a week. Don't want a Michigan rust bucket. So on Craigslist I've found some that I am interested in. To recap what I want : 2005-2007 Crew cab Lariat or XLT diesel with preferably 150,000 miles or less. My first choice color is blue followed by shadow gray.
If i knew how to link the listings on my smartphone, I would. Instead I will give as much info as possible so you can find them.

The 1st is at Midwestdiesel.com for $13950 with 189k miles and its shadow gray.

2nd is in the Nashville CL. Its a blue 05 lariat FX 4 crew with 155k for $16000 in Clarksville.

3rd is in Champaign Illinois at the auto mall. It's a blue 2006 XLT crew FX4 with 152k miles for $16000.

4th is in Nashville CL. Its a black 06 lariat FX4 crew with 124k miles for $16900 in
Goodlettsville.SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD

All seem decent to me. The Midwest truck price is what appeals to me most about it.
The two blue trucks have different appeal. The 05 has had some mechanical stuff done to it already, but has some damage on the hood and passenger rear door. The 06 is a year newer, doesn't have physical damage that I can see, but is cloth and might not even have a power seat.
Please discuss, and thank you!

As you can see the black truck is already gone. Come on guys, a lot of views but no comments.

Ok, probably doesn't matter now as I found 2006 King Ranch Crew with 149k for $16000. Completely stock. If everything checks out, I will pick it up next weekend.

My thoughts are with the '06. Less to go wrong with less options. But King Ranch leather is mighty nice.......... Either way first thing I would do to a truck of that era is soak the rear inner fenders with some fluid film or oil of some kind as long as there in good shape still.

The king ranch is a Texas truck. I plan on undercoating it ASAP. It has 20" after market rims too. If they aren't too bad, I'm considering trying to trade for stock 18"s.

The truck is in eastern Ohio. 380 miles away. I will be in GR on Sunday, but I think I will be picking it up on Saturday. Thank you for the offer.
Pat, you ready for a road trip?

I'm considering riding my motorcycle from Traverse City all the way to Ashland Ohio. It's almost 7 hours by expressway, but I can't do that on a 400cc enduro. Probably take 8 hours at least. And a bottle of ibuprofen!

So today I rode my bike to my old employer, the Ford dealership. I got an Oasis and a Car FAX for the truck.
It was in an accident in 2007, but clean after that. I was concerned as it has an aftermarket grill, gray front bumper and chrome rear bumper.
The Oasis showed the chrome rear bumper is OEM stock. It looks like the front bumper and grill were replaced after the accident. I have the grill that Pat gave me and I will have it painted the same time I get the bumper done.
My friend is going to drive me down to Ohio. Which is awesome because today's ride on the bike made me realize there is no way i could take it 7 hours!

Hey man, good luck with the new ride! And since your buddy is taking you there, think of the money you're going to save on Preparation H! You could use that new found money to... I don't know... buy toys for the new ride!?

Ha ha. No new toys for the truck.

Actually I may have extremely bad news to report. I heard through the grapevine that there maybe cuts coming to personnel soon. Might have to hold off on truck. Hopefully find out in the next day or two. Sucks

Man that does suck. I don't understand why people can't get the fact that people need new trucks in their lives every once in a while! Well, I don't, but ya know. Good luck my friend!

Thanks Mike. Its hard to believe that I maybe going from getting a new truck to looking for a job. I have been looking already, but that was to improve my situation, not save it.
