    I'm looking for a new truck, so what do you guys recommend I look at for $25k or less? I was thinking Nissan Frontier, but I came here to get some suggestions.

    Full-size is prefered, but I understand that's near impossible given my constraints. Besides the <$25k constraint, it must be a crew-cab if it's a compact/mid-size or at least a extended/access/king cab if it's a full-size. Although a crew-cab fullsize is preferable. Undecided if I want 4x4 yet. It would be a huge plus if it did. Power windows is a must.

    On a somewhat unrelated matter, is there even a diesel under 25k?

    Yes, it will be a truck called "used".

    2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab SLT w/ 4.7 & auto trans.
    $24k & some change out the door w/ spray in bedliner, trailer hitch, extended warranty & maintenance contract.
    There were some pretty good dealer incentives & rebates with this.

    yes, I noticed that a local dealer was advertising a 2005 (specifically the 2005) Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab w/V8 for $18995. I took a breif look at it, and it was the lower trim with manual trans, manual windows, and cheap wheels/tires. However, if you configure it out on dodge's site, it's still $23+ for their cheap one.

    Any place I can go for realistic pricing besides the dealer?

    Basically I found the Frontier I want (CrewCab SE, 4.0L V6, Silver, tow-hitch, bedliner, 4x4, LSD, 5-speed auto trans) for $22,500. But for around $3k more I would consider a full-size.

    Any idea on Tundra pricing?

    anybody else?

    So is the frontier the best-bet for the money? Or does someone know of another?

    I don't know about in oregon, but we've had ads running on the radio for dealerships selling new F150's auto, power, A/C and a v8 for under 20k.....

    what engine? Not the 5.4 I assume? Also, I think those are the "work" trucks, so it's a regular cab.

    But I'll look into it.

    well, I think I've decided on my truck. It's just over 25k, but that's okay.

    2005 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 V6 Double-Cab Long Bed

    Went for a test-drive, and fell in love with it.
