Must be buying from a dealer. They typically mark up a diesel $4000 and more.

I am looking for the same truck and have found a number of them just like you describe from $6000 to $8000 in very nice shape with 150K to 225K miles

Keep looking!

Judging by that Craigslist add, I would keep looking. And that's way too much for a 99 with 230k. The engine may be fine at that mileage, but its the same tin that's wrapped around a gasser. That truck with that mileage should be about 8K tops regardless of mods. Lifts and tires do not add value to a truck.

I'd try your bank before financing with a dealer (if you're able to anyway) I agree with them, don't waste your time on that... I can't stand used car salesmen

Keep in mind no bank will finance any vehicle with over 100k. Everything is a car to them and cars are shot with that many miles. Personal loans are expensive...

Yeah I just financed a 2000 f250 with 100k miles. Finance guy said they look at the age of the vehicle not so much the mileage.
