Should I buy 97 crew cab?

Hey guys I am looking to buy a 1997 f-250 crew-cab short box.It has a bran-new automatic transmission with upgraded torque converter with DP tuner, gauges,and cold air intake. He wants $7000 for it but is not firm. It has 169,xxx miles I already have a 96 extended cab 5 speed but i want a daily driver. I just want some opinions before i buy it. Any help would be great thanks.

Got any pics? My first instinct is to go ahead and offer my blessing on this purchase, as you really can't go wrong with an OBS

That seems like a pretty fair price as long as it is clean and not all beat up.

That truck sounds like a good deal. As long as its not beat up. Nothing better than a nice CCSB OBS.
