When my last engine blew up I was shopping around for another truck.
Tons of Chevy and Dodge diesels for sale everywhere, most of them cheap.
1996 Ford F350 5 speed 2 wheel drive power stroke 325,000 miles 6,000 dollars.
1997 F 350 4x4 5 speed power stroke 225,000 miles 15,000 dollars
1996 F350 4x4 5 speed crew cab 175,000 miles 19,950 dollars
Dodges and Chevies with the same mileage and year were half that much money.
