Good buy or Bad buy

I've been in the market for another stroker since I sold my last one. Still trying to sell my old truck. But I've found a truck locally just wondering if either are a good buy or not. 95 F350 CrewCab Diesel 4x4 w/plow don't really need the plow. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks Chris

Wouldn't say scared just don't want to have something major break after just getting it home. But I suppose thats the risk with any used truck.

Wicked hard to find a WI truck with a body that rust-free. If it's okay rust-wise underneath, and the maintenance has been good, that's a very fair price, given how it's equipped. Plow is usu. a caution, but if he's honest about it only being personal use, it shouldn't be an issue. Shame it's an automatic.
