HMMMM.

I'm looking at a larger truck, not sure what I want exactly. I'm looking for something about the size of a f150. What should I consider? I'm not really loyal to Ford/Dodge/Chev. Anyone have any recommendations?

Either a 2000 or a 2001, not sure yet exactly. He said 2001, but on his pictures it said 2000 so can't say for sure. :P

My step brother had one, an 03' like that. Great truck, typical ugly Ford interior, and a few problems with the auto hubs, but if I were to get an F150 it would be one like that or 04'+ crew cab/Harley.

I like older f-150s. I had a 96 and I loved it. Had its down sides but it was an awesome truck.

Buddy of mine has a Nissan Titan and its a very nice truck. Might be a bit more expensive than what you were looking to spend.

Besides those chrome window visors it looks like a solid truck. i hate that particular color F150 but i wouldn't pass up a good deal because of it.
