Looking to by my first f250 7.3l. Opinions?

Hey guys I have an oportunity to buy a 2000 F250 Lariat with a 7.3l diesel and an automatic transmission. The crazy part is it only has 39k Miles and is in great shape. Is there any problem with the year? I know it will have the stronger rods in the motor. What about the transmission? Will it hold up? I plan on just putting an exhaust and chip on it. Will it shift hard with a chip? I posted some pics below. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

the guys said an older guy owned it and used it to pull his boat to florida twice a year and then it sat in his barn when not in use. The current owner bought it from a local dealer with 30k miles on it and drives it to work 5-6 days a week. I am working a deal to trade my 00' 4x4 ranger with 60k miles (mint) and 9k dollars. Good deal? He had it listed for $21,500 onlines. he is looking to downsize and im looking to upsize!

You will NOT go wrong with that truck! That is a hell of a truck! I would jump on it ASAP!!! with 30k miles, it needs NOTHING, or nothing to be worried about!
