My local dealership was pushing a 2007 5.7L V8 Big Horn with 57K miles for $19K, but I can't justify spending that much. I'd prefer to stay in the $10-14K range.
I found a couple of options going a bit older with some additional mileage:
The HemiSport is growing on me and I like the black on black, but the 2002 has the bigger 5.9L V8 and a few less miles. I've heard the 5.7L V8 is a great engine, I would assume similar with the 5.9L? Anything in particular with this gen that I should look out for when going over the vehicle and test driving? Other buying advice/comments?
I'm looking forward to owning my first truck and joining the community here. Thanks!

She does like to suck up some gas. Still on my first tank, but it's looking right around 12mpg. It's a good thing this is a secondary vehicle for me or I'd be going broke!
