 I am having a hard time finding a very specific, used pickup. It is very unique and through my own searches, I have only found about three for sale in the United States that have less than 70,000 miles on them....  The one that I had got totaled in a wreck when a car drifted across and hit my horse trailer and I just want my same truck back. Mine was pristine and only had 45,000 miles on it when it was hit. I am willing to travel to look at it or have it shipped or what not, I’m literally looking nationwide.... call me OCD but I just feel like if I buy something else I’m going to HATE it.  Has anyone used a broker to track down a vehicle before? I’m wondering if they have more access to different resources than the standard websites and searches that I have been using

It’s a 2015-2016 F350 white King Ranch with a long bed and tan interior <70k miles and in good condition. Mine was immaculate and had 45k miles on it  that specific interior was only on those two years  and the tan carpet is hard to find and when you do find it 99% of them are a short bed or a dually....

Was your truck wrecked bad enough you couldn't buy it back from the insurance company and fix it? 

Might be too late to do that now. Good Luck on your search!

Yes, the frame was bent when the trailer came down and hit the bed rails and it was bent another way from the front end running into a ditch after the lady had hit me.  The buyback on it was $23,000 and I don’t think I would ever be able to trust it after all that....

If you know a Used car dealer they have the network to look for specific vehicles that might be coming through an auction. A lot of dealers will run their trade in's through an auction.  We have a friend that owns a lot and have told him what we were looking for and he has found it for us before.  A lot of dealers will want you to be pre-approved for financing before they will start looking for you.

Thank you, I'll look into that! I'm already pre-approved and got the payout from the insurance so I'm ready whenever I find it
