sure go take a look. if they are asking x they will probably take less
when you look at it does it look like it has been taken care of? if it does than it probably has, if it looks like someone spray painted the chassis black they could be hiding some issues and the truck might have more problems.
a transmission rebuild is not that expensive. and unlike the 6.0 coolant is not as important. do the the normal things. check the fluids, smell the tranny fluid does it smell burnt. check for leak, the ball joints, the u joints, etc. start it cold does it smoke alot, make any strange noise. take it for a test drive, does it shift through the gears, does it run well, do all the electrics work. locks work? windows work? cruise? ac? shift into 4x4 does it go easily?
