looking into a duelie

Hi Im new to this forum, and need some advice. Im looking into buying a 2002 7.3l duellie. It is a 4dr. and has 188,000 miles on it. It on sale for 18K. Is it worth it? How many more miles can it go without any major problems?

to THE forum.
In my opinion, that may be a little bit high ($) for the mileage. But there are many of those that have 200 - 300 thousand miles (and some with more than that). You might find another with less miles. However, if it is sound and you really like it, as these models aren't extremely plentiful, you might want to go ahead and take the plunge. This model seems desirable. Just my opinion.
You will get surely get more feedback.

I bought an '01 F250 with 220K miles. I, too, was concerned about the miles, but I found out it had been maintained well.

You might want to consider getting an Oasis report (become a premium member and someone will run it for you) to check for warranty repairs, and run a CarFax to ensure it's not been in an accident or is salvaged...

If it comes back clean, I'd go for it. Maybe the seller would take less if you made him an offer...

Yes - definitely Oasis report. Premium members can have this run for them (free). Again - Welcome!

sounds like a nice rig but 18k seems a little to high. Are the tires new. what kinda interior and power options? Does it have any kinda leak that you can see from underneath. All of those should be addressed when negotiating the price.

Thumbs up

Welcome to the site!!!!!! I bought mine with 145,000 and it's a 99. Like the guy's will tell you check it out the best you can. If it all checks go for it. The bolt on parts are something that will happen from time to time. They are a great truck and sure nice to drive!!! Good luck
