2000 with 230,000 miles what to expect?

Got a friend looking at buying a 2000 f250 super crew with 230,000 miles on it. Owner says he hasn't done anything to it other than a chip/tuner. It has had a transmission recently and that is it. Every year has their quirks and I have more experience with the 6.0 and 6.4 so I am just trying to help him gather as much info as possible before he purchases the truck. It is 4x4 and looks to be a nice rust free truck, any thoughts on what it's worth? Any major expenses to expect that a truck with those miles will experience?

Thanks

I am partial to the '00 Super duty, it's got forged rods, the better turbo and hpop over the early '99s and they are solid trucks. Expect bad ball joints soon if not already, needing a waterpump possibly, but other than that if it's got a newer transmission you can't go too wrong. I'd peek at the turbo wheel and see if it's all chewed up or nice and clean, that will tell you if it's been sucking in dirt. As for what it's worth, it really varies by where you are. Around here in the Pacific Northwest they hold value like crazy it seems, but I read about guys elsewhere in the country picking them up pretty cheap.

Good luck!
Scott

May have to change the ICP sensor on it every now and again. Its pretty easy to do and IIRC the sensor is like $150 or so. I agree with the above post they are very solid trucks.

We bought our Excursion a year and a half ago, with 243K on it, over 260K now, no issues other than an alternator went out a few months ago. Check out the threads here on general things to check, but I wouldn't think twice about buying a 7.3 powered truck with that mileage. Good that the trans is fresh, as that's the weak link most likely to cause problems, other than general maintnance stuff like brakes, tierods, ball joints, wheel berrings, universal joints, and so on...

Also IMHO the late model 7.3 is as close to bulletproof as any diesel ever has been or ever will be.
