Default Need help looking for a specific truck

So I have compiled a list of things i want in a truck and a price range. Im very new to trucks but not new to offroading. I am selling my current Jeep and am looking for in your opinion the best truck(any make or model) that I can get for under or at 7,000. I want to get it stock because I'm planning on putting a 3 in suspension lift and maybe a body lift. My jeep had 35x12.5 tires on it and I dont want to put the truck on tires that big. Im kind of lost in the sense of what year to look at and what make would be the best for the money. Im willing to buy a truck with high mileage if it is a truck that will still last a good while. I want it to be in good cosmetic condition and I want the interior to look pretty nice. Any opinions? anything to stay away from? I dont want a truck newer than 2002 because I dont need something that new but I want it to look attractive with a lift on it. So in other words looks are just as important to me as performance because I have a designated offroad vehicle already.I want it to be able to haul my dirtbikes to my favorite mudding pits and get dirty on occasion. Please help me I am completely lost. Thank you

Thumbs up

i would look at chevys around due to one fact that 88-98 parts are interchangable with maybe a few parts that arent
and these trucks are everywhere and they are reasonably priced plus there are thousands of companys out there that make lifts and differnet things for them
and there every where you can go to a junk yard and pull a fender off and save some money
or whatever you may need
i say go with chevy

88-98
reason
theres alot of people makeing parts and accessories lifts and what not
