Yes, it's the controversial powerstrokehelp guy. But he has a pretty good section on buying a used truck. If you watch all 4 parts of his video and write down all the things he covers, I guarantee you will end up checking more things than if you just look at whatever comes to mind when you are there. Maybe you will also find some reasons to lower the price.

Here is part one.

Update. I offered 3500 and he accepted. Got an oil leak out of the pan. Tranny fluid is clean and not burnt. But it's got a clicking noise in first gear under throttle. not in any other gear, and only under throttle. Sounds like it's coming from the tranny but i can't quite tell...

I figure i can't go wrong for 3500 though!

Man even with the oil leak and 300k I would have bought it in a second at that price, great buy. The tranny thing could be that 2001 diode, I'm not sure what all it entails as I drive a manual, but hopefully others will chime in. I believe there is an oil pan repair kit as well, but it's very possible the leak is the dipstick tube or even the oil drain bolt. I had a leak at the drain bolt when I was using copper washers instead of the nylons, for some reason it just wanted to leak with anything but nylon, easy fix though.

oh yeah....
