95 F250 good or bad?

I am thinking about buying a 95 f250 extended cab long bed.
It's the 7.3 with 214,000 miles on it but it belongs to a rv dealer. It has had a fifth wheel hitch in it but no longer does. The interior is absolutely perfect. Here is what I know about the truck.

4 wheel drive
Lockout hubs
7.3 diesel
Automatic
Air conditioning
214,000 miles on engine
Transmission rebuilt about 5000 miles ago

They want 6k for it.

Should I get it or not? Any thoughts or comments are welcome.

6k doesn't sound bad, especially for the miles.

Was the transmission rebuilt to stock or beefed up?
How's the front end? Dana 50's can/will be a PITA. If it already has issues, stay away.
Good tires and brakes?
I'd say put fifty-five $100 bills in front of them. Worst case scenario is you have to count out five more.

I believe the trans was rebuilt to stock.
The front end is a D50. The only problems im aware of are the trans and the tires will need replaced by next winter.

The trans is going to need to be replaced?

Five large. Fifty Benjamins. With that kind of rust, and those miles, and having been used for fifth wheel. We paid $5500 for an ECLB 5-speed with no bed rust and only 64,000 miles a couple years ago.

So why is the trans a "problem" if it's been rebuilt? From what I've read, with the automatics a rebuild in the 200,000-mile range is pretty common.
