is this worth buying?

found this truck on CL and it looks pretty decent. I've read about the edge evolution programmer and people are saying that they burn up trannies since its a motor tune not a tranny tune. Since this is a manual, is this setup ok? I'm thinking about offering 6500 and maybe going up to 6700. whadda yall think?

1995 f250 4x4 powerstroke

Thanks for your time,

Brian

Looks like a nice ride. He has it priced alittle high in my opinion.

but what do you think of the offer i suggested? I'm going to go over the entire thing to check for rust etc... ( it has the usual light rust around the wheel wells but not through yet and I really dont mind welding in a patch). But what do you think of the mileage (I've heard the engines are unstoppable as are the manuals). I guess my biggest concern is the programmer because of what people have said about them on here. since it is a manual should I be worried at all?

Thanks again,

Brian

P.S. I rolled my truck last sunday so I'm looking for a truck to replace it with as soon as insurance writes me a check. so what i'm saying is I dont have all year to look around so if this seems like a decent truck I'll offer 6500 and go from there. I really appreciate all of your inputs!!

I would offer 6500. I bought mine for 6500 almost 2years ago with more mileage than that. It looks like the body is clean and the mileage is not high at all. The only thing is the prices have really tanked on the truck market because of the economy.

alright. thanks! It seems that we're on the same page. Minimal rust I will need to take care of next spring (no reason to fix it and then drive through salt). I will check floor pans, cab corners, the usual spots. Thanks for the replies! all opinions and input welcome and solicited.

Cheers,

Brian

I think that seems pretty high. But then again - I'm not really turned on by most of the mods and wouldn't know how to value them (i.e. if you like them).

Personally I hate the pipes. Even if I liked them I wouldn't want the clearance problems that they create (just mentioning it in case you may need/want to park it in a typical residential garage someday). I had to cut out a piece of the trim on my garage just to get mine in the garage (and I don't have a lift or big tires).

i wouldnt pay more then 4k for it,if it has rust i would go lower then that.i see crew cab long beds with less mileage and no rust for 6-7k all day.you can get alot more truck and lower mileage for that money.the market for these trucks just arent good right now.3yrs ago he might he might have gotton 6500 for that truck but not now.only way he will is if he finds a sucker.i would say 4k tops,the rust scares me.if its rusting on the body panels i dont want to see what is goin on underneath and inside other body panels.id keep lookin man.let us know

I agree with 97stroker... I would start around 4500 to 5000.... I had found a perfect 95 in eldorado il over the summer that was a 350 4x4 cc dually with no rust and 30,000 for 9000 and i thought that was way high. REMEMBER... IT IS A ILLINOIS TRUCK AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT ROAD SALT DOES!!!

early 99 crewcab dually 4x4 7.3
afe filter
alum wheels
ranchhand replacement bumper
02 turbo
reese 16k fifth wheel hitch
T+S 6 position chip... WOW!
