Keep in mind, these trucks are designed to work. An easy life is not what they were built for. With that in mind, if they're not properly maintained, they will break, and leave you stranded.
I would ask the owner, and see if they have records showing their maintenance schedule. (i.e., receipts showing oil, oil filter purchase, and mileage changed at) What was the incriment that they changed their oil at? 3K, 4K, 5K????? Has the fuel filter been changed recently? Were they using a fuel additive? (if so, what?) Shocks? (last replaced) Tires? (rotated?) Any issues? Pick the owners brain.
The price could very well be a good one, so long as the truck hasn't been neglected. If it's been neglected, then you'd definitely want to reserve a bit of money to get it up to par, and to also be prepared to take care of any incidentals.
Don't burn your bridges, you might have to cross them again in life.
Don't sugar coat things. It covers up the taste of real life.
