gettin a 95 powerstroke

alright I found a 95 powerstroke around my area, its 4x4, and an automatic, it has 216,000 miles, extended cab, long bed, he said only problems are that he lost the key and he starts it an alternate way. First off to fix this could I just get a new key and tumbler?

but now heres what he wants for it, I have been wantin somethin 4 wheel drive, that has a back seat and is roomy, thats kinda fast, and gets decent gas mileage, least high teens or so.

now my only answer for this is a diesel truck, besides that im obsessed with them, this truck would be my Daily Driver now obviously gas prices are going up so diesel will be ever more, Id start by gettin a bigger downpipe and straight piping the truck with 4 or 5" as well as getting an intake and a chip.

He wants to trade for my 1998 cavalier, its a good little car that gets good gas mpg, but he also wants $2000 on top
Do you guys think this is worth it?

no pics sorry, their on my phone, and Im tryin to figure out how to upload them lol, and my cavalier has 152,000 miles, 5 speed, I just put in a used tranny about 2 weeks ago, the old one went out, its got a cold air intake, tinted windows, aftermarket wheels, and a aftermarket cd player, interior is clean except driver seat has a tear, it drives good, but will need tires soon, blinkers dont work. windshield is cracked

truck is just white, stock, just a single crack on the windshield, and a dent on the wheel well, I havent looked at it in person yet he was asking $5000

forgot to say my cavaliers driver side front fender is a different color than the car, the car is a ocean green, the fender is a sparkly baby blue lol, and the bumper is black, its just the way I got it, I purchased it for 1600, and have put about 400 in it with the intake and the tranny. cuz I did it myself

the truck is definately worth it than? The first time I rode in my buddies 97 I fell in love, I can also get access to stacks and semi turbos pretty easily if I could make those work lol. But anythin else you guys got to say about the truck?
