Where to buy

Hi all,
I'm a Canadian looking to pick up one or two more crew cabs in the larger American market this winter. Must haves are: 7.3 Super Duty, crew cab, 4X4.
Hoping for opinions on the best areas to be looking in the States - are there cities with better selection and lower prices or has the internet been the great leveller?
Thanks

Stay out of the salt belt. Anything from the desert Midwest will be rust free. I know shipping will be a little more, but it will be worth it. I would include in that Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, West Texas, Western Oklahoma. There are probably some good ones from Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida as well, but you'll have to get the coon dog smell out of them.

Thanks Caryt and RT. Now I'm looking a lot in both countries, the better deals seem to be in Canada so far although far more trucks in US. Just bought a 2002 F350 crewcab Lariat 4X4 300,000 km for $11,000 in seems like very good condition. As always with used time will tell.

Make sure you check vehicle history, Just because you are buying a truck in the south doesn't mean that's were it has lived its life. IE: My 2001 I bought in 2006 from a dealer in Minnesota, I had it in upstate New York for 3 yrs, and sold it to a dealer in Texas that fixed the rust. and sold it in a few days
The truck I have now I found in Florida I thought it was a deal @ $ 16,500
