well it depends on what you want i suppose. if you want to go low go like 98+ because drop beams are expensive. if you want to go upward get like a 97 or so because you can make awesome trophy truck looking rigs out of them

It also depends if you want a regular or supercab. More Edge's come in Supercab form but a good hand full of regular cab Edge's can be found too.

I have an 04 Edge, no tilt wheel and no cruise, has no back seat either just two cubby holes and a flat floor which is OK I dont think anyone could fit back there anyway, Its just my little goffer truck so its fine, Yeah wish it had a 4.0 but got it used, so took what it has and try to work with it

Just go to autotader.com, put I'm your ZIP, price range, etc.

I'd look for a 4x4 Seupercab. Doesn't have to be an edge, the XLTs ae nice. A nice fx4 could even be had in the 8K price ranger in like an 01 model. Just make sure you really search and compare.

I know when I was looking, I found a nice 01 XLT 4 door 4.0 4X4 for 8500 and I could have easily talked them down to probably 7k
