Best place to buy a truck online?

Looking at buying a used (2018/2019) F150 King Ranch, anyone have any particular place they'd recommend (i.e. carfax, carmax, any specific forum, etc)?

I appreciate any insight. So far I've found the most options on carfax.com.

Thanks

As some one who buys 1 to 2 trucks per year I wouldn't ever buy online. I have a very strict way at looking at trucks. Trucks aren't like cars because of the amount of wear they could possibly have in such a short time. I would look closely underneath for any sign of equipment that may have been attached, especially if it's 4wd. In my case our trucks look good but I know they have been loaded 100% of the time, even my f150s. Just throwing it out there.

Not just trucks though, I have seen cars online that look great, low miles, then I go see them in person and they are totally beat to shit. The pictures just don't show enough detail, plus they can stink or have other issues that don't come through in pics.

I have a Carmax right by my house, so I sometimes walk the lot for fun. How people can fuck up cars as bad as they do in such a short amount of time is beyond to me. People are fucking savages!

I appreciate the insight very much. I've been looking local, but this particular truck just isn't quite as available as I'd hoped.

Anyone have a good ford truck forum they like? There are quite a few, just can't find one that has a lot of traffic, or any one of them that shows me it's the go-to forum.
