    Here's an idea, try searching for one on Craigslist or Autotrader...

    Expand your search and be willing to travel. I took Amtrak from Chicago to Kalamzoo MI to buy a lightly used 2003 Chevy 1500HD in October for $6,400. Cost me a $30 ticket and $60 gas to drive it home.

    Wow, 150 miles? I will drive a thousand for the right truck or piece of equipment.
