it all depends on maintenance.
if the truck is well maintained the main parts such as the engine and transmission should be good to go.
150-200k might need new ball joints and tie rods.
some sensors might need replacing, possibly glow plugs, relays.
but all the parts can be had for relatively cheap and you can easily do everything yourself.
I get between 14-15 mpg. my dad gets about 16 on avg.
some people get a little higher.
you will get between 11-13 mpg towing, and have plenty of power to drag whatever you want behind you.
and if you don't want to keep it stock, gauges intake exhaust chip are the way to have a reliable truck with plenty of power.
