I’ve Got $9000, What Ford Pickup Can I Get?

Let’s say you’ve got $9000 and you’ve decided you want a Ford pickup truck. What will $9000 get you? We took four random cities; Los Angeles, Houston, St. Louis, and Charlotte, and scoured each city’s Craigslist to get an idea of what is available. Condition, mileage, engines, and options all play a part in the decision. The year of manufacture didn’t because we weren’t sure what the sweet spot was for the arbitrary $9,000 buy-in. The range of Ford trucks could be anywhere from a Ranger to an F-350.

All trucks are private owners and have clean titles. We picked the cleanest-looking pickups with the least amount of miles. Diesel or gas, two-wheel- or four-wheel-drive, we were open to all of the possibilities. We’ll give you a brief rundown of each one and a link. Let’s take a look:
