Trucks are priced higher than ever right now! So how do you get a good used truck for a reasonable price without getting ripped off? Today we'll look at how to evaluate buying an older used truck and what to look for so you don't make a bad decision or end up buying junk!

Dave shares what he knows and encourages other to do the same. Teaching is a great way to learn more on the subject because you see the subject through the questions of others. It also teaches you what is really important. That’s why he is humble and proficient in several areas. Just roll up your sleeves and learn something.

Be great to see a series on how you restore this truck to a safe, nominal driving state. Tracking the costs of parts and tools needed would be nice too.

Mechanical locking hubs-winning. Also on this particular truck it has one of the easiest Heater Cores to change in all my years of turning Wrenches. The only part that scare me on this truck is the remaining life of the hard lines (fuel, brakes.) All easily repairable. I agree about the Spring Perches, Body Mounts, and Frame condition. If they are extremely damaged, consider your options carefully. Rust never sleeps.....

Spring hangers butn off and can be replaced inside an hour. The replacement parts with 4 new grade 8's and nuts is less than 50 bucks. Not much to consider carefully there. Body mounts can be a pita but also cheap to replace. Those two items don't match your frame concern. That's a whole different animal. If that's rotted out or too thin, she's a parts truck.

This couldn’t have come at a better time, I’m looking for a truck at the moment, I’d like to find me a 90’s ford 4x4, I’m down state here in Michigan and the salt eats em up. I don’t mind it being rusty or banged up, but just want a reliable truck for hailing to our property . Thanks for sharing 👍🏻🇺🇸

Hey Dave, When I committed to leaving northern Va. and attempt living up here alone, off-grid, and in the backwoods of Maine after our father passed on in early 2013, I used his '93 Ford Ranger only as a yard truck and mainly for toting firewood logs out of the forest. The frame finally rusted out so bad it was shaped like a V when the dude towed it away from here a few years later... after paying me $125. 🙈

I have purchased my share of older vehicles and I have to say that this is the best, most realistic video of what someone should go through when buying a used car that I have ever seen. By the same token, it's good to know what others are looking for when you are selling a vehicle so you can make some simple repairs to get the best return on your investment and this video does that as well. Nicely done!

This brought back memories of my dad working on his trucks, cars, and semi-he was a truck driver. When he bought his first new truck he popped the hood and started removing off all these new fangled things that "weren't necessary" to make a truck work. Looking back he probably should've bought another used one lol. Thanks for your expertise.

Timely video for me, Dave. Thanks! My '02 Camry got flattened by a hillside full of trees on New Years Eve, true story. I had loaned it to my son because his car threw it's transmission and the wife and I have a nice ten year old mini van, I work from home, she's not working right now, so no hardship to us to help him out. He even parked it in his garage to keep it safe. Everything worked on that Camry, not a single thing wrong with it. On NYE here in Kentucky we had a major ice and wind storm, his house is at the bottom of a cliff. All the trees came down from the top of the cliff right onto his garage and the back of his house. Fortunately only cosmetic damage to the house but the garage was flattened, with my car in it. Funniest part of the story, once they cut down far enough to get to the car it was about half of it's normal height, but still started and drove out of the mess of trees onto the flat bed that hauled it away. Since our 4 wheel pick up got rear ended last Summer we have really wanted another one, so we decided to get one instead of another car. Hence how timely this video is for me. Another awesome video, thanks again.

Great video! I normally avoid dealers, but a 2000 Ford Expedition 4x4 caught my eye. It has some minor flaws being it's 22 years old and high miles 250K. But the dealer was surprised and a little concerned since I took it on a test drive for about 1/2 hour! I'm lucky because I grew up in a family of mechanics who taught me the basics. I did a thorough check of everything and to my amazement, they did all the work that they said they did. Plus, I think the previous 1 owner took very good care of it. What I would also like to add is, I would smell the oil and transmission fluid to check it, check the front suspension for wiggle, and front and rear differentials for leaks or noise. And bring a scanner for any codes. I had a shady guy try to sell me a Santa Fe with "No check Engine" and my scanner lit up like a Christmas tree with code after code! In CA, passing the smog inspection is an issue! So far, I've done my own oil change and put new tires after 1 year and I love my truck!

Hi Dave, love your videos especially the ones about building your own cabin. Like you, I have a ninth generation F150. Mine is a single cab with the 302 engine - just purrs along, and has been absolutely reliable. Here in New Zealand we have LOTS of old American trucks!

Interesting. Looked like the check engine light might have been on and it had a pretty good exhaust leak. In some states that's not an issue but here in Arizona they freak out at emissions time if even an insignificant hose is off. An exhaust leak will result in a fail. In some states people even remove their emission stuff. I've had a rusty car once in my life. Bought it here in Arizona for parts. An Arizona car all it's life. The car was a 61 Mercury Comet. Front floor pans were rusty. How did it get rusty in a dry state where summer temp's average 115? The carpet pad. Rubber quickly dry rots here. That in turn allows water entry. Carpet pads are like sponges. Even with high daily temps that moisture under the carpet stays wet indefinitely. Thus the rotted out floors in an Arizona car. $1900 was not to bad considering the necessary stuff is a cheap fix.

Good sound advice Dave. The last brand new vehicle I purchased from a dealership was way back in 1986. I've learnt over the years that if you know what to look for, you can find a very reliable used vehicle and save tens of thousands of dollars.

Great video! I'm from Montana and love the 90's Fords. I have a fleet of different trucks that includes an 88 F-150 and a 97 F-350 turbo diesel. Both still run great despite my best efforts of beating them up. I still get folks wanting to buy the 97. Folks offering nearly full price what I paid for it brand new back in 97. It just astounds me but I'm not ready to let it go yet because I still use it for a lot of hauling and prefer trucks that are more mechanical/less electronics-based. Makes it easier to work on them. You remind me of something like a mix between Al from Home Improvement and Bob Villa. Great stuff!

Six years ago I purchased a 93 Ranger XL. Although it had a few issues, most have since been dealt with and I'm very happy with the purchase. The plastic headlights in older Fords are subject to leakage, fogging, and discoloration and should be replaced. The good news is they aren't expensive. The bad news is the new replacements are just as prone to moisture and discoloration problems and a downright nightmare to install and align. It makes one long for the era of "five minutes and you're done" sealed glass headlights from yesteryear. My first replacements actually resembled partly filled aquariums after going through a rainy spring. I discovered that the problem can be traced to real shoddy gluing of the two segments. Don't gamble. I suggest applying J-B Weld all the way around the outside of the seam and allowing it to dry before installing. There are also special sprays and wipes that only need to be applied only once a year to keep the plastic lens clear.

Good review. I bought a 97 F250 on an on line auction. Had 4 good tires, new alternator water pump and belt and a new battery. The AC works. 351 v8 auto 2 wheel drive. Sight unseen I paid $400 for it with 187000km on it (116000miles.) I've driven it for 5 years hauling a 500 gallon water tank. Only rust is on wheel wells. no rust on frame. Has a bad valve but gets the job done. The guy who brought it in to the auction just wanted rid of it, he never even washed it.

Great video, Dave. I have been looking at used Montana trucks (lesser salt) than here in MN. Pretty slim pickings so far. Great advice on checking the frame and springs. Salt is a killer for metal for sure. I would say you got a good deal for sure. Is that a 300? If it is they are bullet proof. Greeting from the Arrowhead.

I'm from the Maritimes in Canada, There is virtually nothing over 20 years old out here because the body, frame, and wires are completely destroyed from the salt brine on the road and the salty sea air.

Great evaluation of that truck, thanx Dave. I had a 1985 Toyota PU and the frame broke in half. Bought steel, made a new frame, welded it together, then drove the truck another 10 years. When I traded it in on a new 2011 Tacoma, they gave me 2000. dollars trade in value. That amount was twice the amount it took to repair the frame. The guy at the metal shop said I could not do a frame. I stopped by one day after the repair and said hello to him. He could not believe his eyes.

This is a great video and it needs a follow-up. With the average price of a new vehicle over 40K and pickups trading for even more buying an older truck is a good bet. Would like to see what you replace and how much it cost. Did you use a rust convertor on the frame etc. Look forward to the follow-up!

Hi Dave, I took my grandson 2hours from where we live to look at the perfect old truck. the guys add said runs good, clear title, etc. Well we looked it over found the truck was maybe not as good as the the add stated, but we could still fix it. The kick in the pants was the "clear title", it was clear gone. He said all we had to do was to go to tile office and pick one up. Needless to say we drove home without it. I don't know how the state of MI does it, but that is a big no for me....
