Should I be scared to buy an F250 with 207K miles?

A buddy has his truck for sale, it's a 2000 F250 supercab short bed 4x4 Lariat. It's a clean truck for the mileage with a few dents and scratched which is to be expected and a little wear on the driver seat leather. Aside from that it looks like a good truck. I can probably pick it up for $11K and I'm not sure if that's a good price or not but according to KBB it is. What do you think?

Thers an article around here somewhere about what to look for when buying a used superduty. Maybe someone will come by and link it for you, I'm not that 'puter literate . If its in decent shape thats a decent price for this area.

if you live up north pay close attention to the oil pan tthey are known for rusting through. and you might wanna change the teh turbo wheel to a wicked wheel to fix teh surge. that link should help you out. also you can stick your hand over teh oil fill cap and see if you get any pressure building up that will tell you if you have any blowby on teh rings. if you are unsure what to look at take it to your mechanic
