looking at a new truck

I am looking at getting a new truck and Im looking at my service managers truck which happens to be a 2003 F350 Crew Cab Long Bed. its a XLT Sport SRW with a black and gray two tone cloth interior and Gray Exterior (all body color) with an FX4 Option Package and it also has a 6inch lift and bfg a/t - 35/12.50/16 on procomp polished wheels. Its a 7.3L with 114,600 miles single owner and no performance mods other thant a k&n intake kit. also rear seat entertainment (aftermarket). It has a small small amount of rust just above the rear wheels on the bed (has not gone through yet so its fixable)

I went on KBB.com and got a $16,500 good condition price and since I work at the dealership the Dealer values it at $13,900 for trade in.

Let me know what you think. Should I buy it, is it a good solid truck, and how much should I buy it for if everything works out? Also if there is anything that I should look for or that should have been done before I buy it.


BTW he is looking for $16,000

Thats all. Thanks

Dave.

Due to the rust issues, I'd say $13000, if that.
