Looking to Buy a backup Med Duty Rollback

Question

Just wanted some opinions on older rollbacks (2000 - 2008) Pre DEF if Diesel they have owned that were dependable and low maintenance.

Also What Bed MFG, Length and Steel or Alum.

I was considering a GMC with a 8.1 Gas... I like the Fords but the V-10 and low end oil issues.... Since this is only a spare truck I wold like to stay around 20K or under. We have a Fleet Service Truck Garage with a Weld and Fab Shop and Body Shop so I don't mind doing maintenance and repair but some Mfg's parts are very pricy when they break down. Thank You in advance for any input.

Gas is Cheap right now

 

Diesel Rig:  F650 with a cummins/allison combo

Gas Rig: Chevy/GMC with the 8.1 or F550 with V10 (this old version is fine, the new one is out of you price range is the one with issues)

 

Decks:

You need at least a 19.5', most are 21'

Alum vs Steel

Depends on your areas rust situation.

When buying a used aluminum deck, look at where the beams meet the bed locks to make sure the ends are not cracked off.
