Parts Hauling AZ-MO

There is an 8" truck bed that I'm trying to buy in Arizona and I live in Missouri but I simply don't have time to make the trip myself, does anyone go that way regularly and how much would it cost me?

Which F-series grille do you prefer?

Do you prefer the "Monkey-faced" 48-50 or the "Manure Grille"/"Picket Grille" 51-52 or the second gen grille 53-56? Also, why did Ford change the styling mid-gen?
