Cheap rims/tires: What are some nice swapped wheels on an F-150??

Okay, this is not just a want-to-buy thread. This is a WHAT NICE (and CHEAP) WHEELS FIT ON A 2000 F-150 2WD??? thread.
I cannot afford aftermarket wheels, and I have always enjoyed using parts from other vehicles to sharpen my cars/trucks. Example. A set of 17" 2010 Sierra wheels looked AWESOME on my 93 Mazda B2200, and lifted the truck 3 inches instantly. The best part is, the wheels and tires cost me $500 on craigslist.
So here's my goal: to get a nice set of wheels with tires for fairly cheap. I would love some pics from folks who swapped wheels to their 97-03 F-150 from other vehicles to see what looks good. Any fitment issues to look out for would help, too.
Also, the bolt pattern on the 2wd is 5-135 right?? I have read a few different things about this pattern and am wondering if a couple are interchangeable.
Also feel free to make me an offer if you have stock 17s or 18s (that would fit my truck) with tires cluttering up your garage. I AM in the market
Please post any advise, suggestions, wheel/tire donations (lol) or past issues you may have that can help me figure out what wheels I can swap my 16" alloys out with. Thanks

Such as....??
I found some on TireRack that are ok, but not like I want. And I would LOVE a set of takeoffs that someone doesn't need. This guy had put 20's on his 2010 Sierra and I scooped up his factory 17s (with tires with less than 10,000 miles on them) AND a full size spare for $500. I had to grind the hubs on my Mazda to get them on, but they were phenomenal....I will try to post a pic.
Anyway, this is the kind of stuff I like - oversized, with a factory look. I will try to get some King Ranch wheels, but something tells me those are few and far between. Maybe Tire Rack is my best option

although my truck is an FX4, it took me almost two years to find a set.. because my truck came with a set of doodoo mickey thompson classic knock-offs.

Wow that took me a minute to find that you have to use the bbcode on the pic-site. You have a sweet-looking setup, there, DHG. Don't need quite the mudbogger extreme you went to, however...just looking for a few more inches of diameter and a clean wheel. My 16" alloys are God-awful hideous imo. I am sure you are all familiar with the wheels...

he just likes postin pictures. haha, jk DHG, we all do.
honestly slorider, i would just troll craigslist until you find what you want. for a factory look on 5x135 and 18 inches or bigger it wont be easy.

these are nice. i had some 22's once. for $900 it aint bad but i now its probably more than you're looking for.

LOL I have been trollin for 3 days since the trade for the truck began. I know these wheels are gonna bug me cuz they KILL the look of the truck.
17s or 18s would be perfect...I work at a shop so tires are cheap for me. The trick is to talk this guy down...if these would fit that is...
