Price is OK if the truck has been maintained properly. If you are not mechanically inclined have a diesel guy give it the once over. Good luck!

Oh and welcome to the org.!

Here's some reading........

How Many Miles On Your Truck?

Guess it just all has to do with maintenance. I have 153,000 on my 2001 and I fully expect to put another 250,000-300,000 on it but I also expect to do a lot of part replacement in those 10-15 years.

My dad bought his with 280 on the clock in October, has 305 now and doesn't burn a drop, hiccup or have a single problem hauling a GMC Yukon 400+ miles. I just bought mine with 240K, and love the **** out of it, runs awesome, doesn't burn a drop or even dirty the oil. Mine is a 6 SPD, and my Dad's is an Auto. I like the 6SPD more, but that's because the last thing I want When I travel 1,000 miles in 2 days for work is a tranny failure.

I paid 10 for mine and its MINT. So, I'd say if there weren't any major mechanical issues with that one, its a good price. The 6 SPD's are damn near impossible to find in my neck of the woods... it'd sell for 10 here within 2 days of being listed, no problem!

Both my truck, and my dad's don't dirty the oil, at all really. No more so than a gasser. I used to run a Mobil 1 quick lube shop, and I was expecting that when I checked my oil. 2,000 miles since I've bought the truck and I can still see the color of the dipstick through the oil. My dad's at 5,000 on his synthetic oil change and it came out damn near as clean as it went in. I'll get a some pics next go around on oil changes
