should i buy it?

im in the phoenix, arizona area and im on craigslist all the time. well im a obs and 7.3 guy and i think i found my perfect truck (surprising how many times ive said that)

anyways, i came across this guy that has a 1995 f250 XLT extended cab long bed powerstroke diesel. its 2 wheel drive and has 92k ORIGINAL miles. manual tranny. he is the original owner and the truck is clean as can be. he says the reason for sale is he has no need for a truck this big anymore. he is asking $5200 and its always been an AZ truck so no rust or funny stuff like that.

just thought id get some extra opinions, i dont NEED the truck. but it sure would be nice to look down and see 92,000 rather than 213,000 on my other truck.

atleast if i dont buy it you guys (in the area or close) are aware of a super nice OBS.

I say buy it, kause new trans probably means he burned the clutch up prematurely. If you want it get it that is, you do kind of have one already tho
