Newbie truck purchaser

Hi Guys,

New to the forum and trying to learn about diesels.

I'm looking at picking up a used truck with a budget max of 15000 canadian. I'd like it to have a dump on it or I will put a dump insert in it. It will be pulling about 3500lbs on a regular basis. Loaded with wood chips

Diesel or gas?

3/4ton or 1ton? With an airbag system would the 3/4 work?

I have no way of pluging in a diesel in the winter and I know then can be hard to start. Is there a product to help with this?(solar panel heater or something)

Any advice would be good. Any years to look for would be good as well.
