Is this a good deal???

Hey all, I'm new to the boards. I currently have a 2003 Mustang GT, which is just becoming a **** bucket for me. I'm looking at getting a 250/350 because I really would rather have a truck that has more capability than my Mustang for about the same/better MPG (last time I checked my Mustang got 11 mpg...). I ran across a 2002 F350 7.3 with near 206,000 miles. The asking price is $8875, but I'm hoping to possibly talk them down to $8500, with a max walk out price of $9000. However, before I would jump into this, is that even a decent deal on an 02 with that mileage, or are these things just meant to go forever? Any advice, input or whatever would be appreciated. Thanks.

Seems reasonable, I got my '02 250 with 120k on it for $9995, KBB was almost 4k more then that. So with that many miles $8500 should be a good deal. I'm sure you'll love the 7.3, and will probably get better mileage then your stang if your not towing all the time, and keep your foot out of it.

Sweet thanks man. That'll definitely help me for sure. With that kind of mileage, I'll definitely want to do a compression test on her to see if she's ok, as well as look into the service records. Thanks again.
