97 purchase

I'm looking at an 97 350, 4x4 with a flatbed, about 220,000 miles. What's it worth and should I steer clear due to the mileage??? Thank you

i wouldn't be scared of the miles. check for blow bye remove the oil fill cap flip it over and see if is gets blown off the valve cover and not shaken off from the engine vibration. undo the intake boot off the turbo and check the fins and see if you can move the impeller in and out up and down. as far as value goes whats the body like what trany and any pics of it

Depending where you are and the rest of the trucks condition.
I would say 5-6k

FYI, if the cab corner is rotten, take a GOOD look at the radiator support. they are the 1st thing to go and now they are OBSOLETE. NO ONE makes them and trying to find a GOOD diesel support is almost impossible

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
