I've purchased trucks with over 200k, My current truck I purchased with 245k on it, now at 265K. I did pull the engine and replaced main and rod bearings as they were shot, although the truck didn't show it.
Oil changes are more expensive, but if you shop around you can DIY for around $50, fuel filters are around $15, brakes and wheel bearings are cheap.
Average maint' cost on these trucks is less then making payments on a newer truck if you can do some work yourself. Obviously most repairs if done correctly will last quite some time, saving plenty of money during their life.
And to tease you, check out this CCLB.
