Good deal on a 2000?

I am looking into buying a used truck. I found a 2000 Lariat Powerstroke. It has a tool box, tinted windows, all power, 4 wheel drive and a Bullydog programmer. It has 170,000 miles on it but has been maintained well. They used it as a work truck so the inside of the bed has some dings but not that big of a deal to me. They just put new brakes on it all the way around and the tires will need to be replaced before too long. There is some rust on the inside on the bottom of the doors but can easily be fixed. It is an extended cab with a short bed. They are asking $12,500. What do you guys think about this?
Thanks, Jordan

If its got rust on the doors be sure to check the oil pan for any rust. The oil pan is a problem and can be a pricey fix.

Its on the inside of the doors. My cousin works at a body shop and said that is typical for the Ford's to do that because of how the doors are made, he said they tend to hold water. He also showed me two other trucks that have it. It is right above the lip on the bottem of the door on the inside.

Not sure where the truck is from, but if its seen salty roads in the winter and the doors are rusting you can bet the oil pan is too! You have to remove the engine to replace it, so check it out good!

I think that is a good deal. Where I live (NJ) that truck would go for 16-17K. 7.3's are rare around here. Anyway, mine has a little bit of rust at the bottom of the door, as well as some small areas here and there. When I bought my truck, the oil pan was rusted through. That with only 92000 miles. Check it.

So I take it if you get under the truck you can see if it is rusting or not or is it more complicated than that? Also how much would it run to replace the oil pan?

Yeah crawl underneath and look at the bottom of the pan. You will be able to tell it will be noticeable if it hasnt been taken care of. Mine is kinda bad with 76,000 on it. As soon as the salty roads wash away from rain Im going to fix mine.
