My friend, a local architect/historical preservationist/State-of-Indiana-enthusiast/politician is looking for a truck. His budget is "not more than $20k" and he would like something with a bench seat or "an extended cab at minimum." Box size didn't seem to matter to him, nor was 4x4 a priority. Probably looking at something from the Big Three here.
What's the best deal out there for something like that?
