Question on a modded truck price

Hi, I probably going to look at a truck that's getting studded, deleted, oil cooler etc. My question is it's a 05 extended cab with around 150k on it. They are asking around $15k for it. I think it sounds like a good idea just because of the cost of studding alone. What do yall think? Is the mileage too high to be modding it and adding performance parts? I know it's a diesel it will run forever sometimes, but just wanting yalls opinion. Thanks

I guess it all depends on how many miles per year you want to put on the truck and what type of use you want to use it for. IMO I would say that you should be fine with it with 150k on it. It could very easily make it another 150k if maintained properly.

Dont know where ur at, but my buddy, who is a 6.0 guru! Has a 2005 F250 King Ranch Crew Cab with 150k that he is going to stud, delete, and oil cooler, for $16k. It has the leveling kit and sittiing on 315 Mickey Thompsons.

Or he has a 2006 that he is going to do the same thing to: 2006 F250 King Ranch Crew cab with 250-300k, for 13k. I have seen gauges on this truck. Oil Cooler Deltas is less than 5 degrees!

The 06 has alot of miles but runs perfect. I couldnt believe it. Best running 300k truck I have seen.

I'm in MD. Alright good to know. I'm gonna look at a 05 F250 xlt ccsb 4x4 with 121k asking $14k tomorrow. But gonna keep that studded & deleted truck in the back of my mind knowing that it would be a while till I could stud the other one.

As long as the truck doesn't feel like its guts have been rung out, you should be good to go on it.

The only bad thing about a diesel is people say they should last 300,000+ miles, that's true for the motor, but there is a vehicle it's attached to and has to be maintained as well.

Yeah I've seen alot of fairly low mile trucks but from the pics you can tell the whole underside is rusting out. I plan on doing the deletes, getting the vehicle in good shape then moving into performance.
