Where can I get a steering wheel column from a junkyard for a 1988 ford f150 cheaper than 200$
Best thing to do is try the Internet. At least you'll know you've tried your best to persue all attempts at finding a lower price. Good luck.
Check eBay. They have tons of parts (new and used) from retailers that go out of business and still have overstock and private sellers. Search: 88 F150 steering column
The best place to get them for cheap is through the online retail shops like eBay or Amazon. The websites allow customers to dictate the price. You can also check with local Ford junkyards in your area for the parts.
