Looking to buy a '00 F-350

I am looking for a new truck, and I came across a '00 dually 4x4 ext. cab not too far from me. It has all new injectors, glow plugs, and a new exhaust, although I'm not sure if it's stock or aftermarket. She's only asking 8500, but it has 192000 on it. I'm kinda leary, but it seems well taken care of. Whats everyone's opinion on the mileage? Thank you

I run a 6liter so i may not have nearly as good advice as hopefully some 7.3 owners chime in with but my dads 7.3 has 210,000 pulled its whole life and never missed a beat!. I also have several friends with high milage 7.3s and love them. If you can get it for a good deal, is the type of truck u need or want and is a good clean well maintained truck, id say go for it IMO. But like i said im sure ull get some more educated advice than i have

Sounds like a good deal, I wouldn't sweat mileage one bit. I have over 200k on mine and it runs perfectly, no oil consumption or cold start problems, 7.3's are excellent motors. How about the tranny? Stock autos are a bit weak.
