Just as relevant and necessary to the conversation as your post?
To the OP: you can find used 1 tons in the 7 to 8 year old range for 25k to 35k depending on mileage and condition. If you end up looking at an older diesel you my want to try to find an independent shop that can advise you on it. Lots of good ones in that age range but others that may require work.
Good luck, get out and enjoy.
