This question is pretty wide open. There are many good years to choose from. Your best bet for a 1/2 ton 4x4 in Montana is the 73-79 models. These can be found pretty much all over the place but the conditions they are in vary greatly. The 3/4 ton models in these years (73-79) are good too. The 3/4 ton 4x4 in the 67-72 models are a little easier to find but they are still hard to find in good shape. The 1/2 ton of these years are very very hard to find in a 4x4 and if you can find one in good shape you are looking at a gold mine in my eyes. I have seen some good pickups in the early 60's too. So the decision is yours. If you have any more questions go ahead and email me. My address is bcd_bcd(No Email Addresses In Posts!). Good luck hunting.

I'd look for a 3/4 ton with a 390 and a four speed. You'd have better luck, I think, with a '73-'79, as far as finding parts. With a good motor and clutch, the combo will give many years of dependable service, and will tackle just about anything you can give it.
