What do you think?

I am looking at purchasing a 2000 Lariat Crew Cab 4x4, 7.3 diesel that is completely loaded with 188,000 on it. The truck appears to be very clean and well maintained. I'm certain at this point I could buy it between $12,500-$13,000.00. Is this a good price for a vehicle with this many miles? Please tell me what you think, Thanks Fowler12 in Ohio.

Smile Sounds good

Hey Fowler12
The price sounds about right. I bought a 99 350 dually this summer and spent right a 14K. It had 145.000 on it when bought. If it is clean and you do your homework it should be a great ride. Try to find out all you can as far as service records and what it has been used for. Sometimes they get tied to a big anchor and makes for a hard life. I know mine didn't have a fifth wheel ball and that made me feel better. There will be things that will have to be repaired along the way. These trucks are made for a lot of miles and we can buy a lot of parts for the difference in the price of a new one HA!!! Hope this help and good luck.

Sounds like a steal!! I bought my 2000 7.3 CC/LB XLT 4x4 a year ago for $17,000 and it had 170,000 on it.

Good deal, but have Marc (member on here) check records for you if possible, get him the vin #. Also don't rely on carfax for accurate info.....just trust me. PM if you need an explanation.

That sounds like a real good price there. If it's from a dealer I would almost be a little leery of a price like that, pretty low for Ohio (believe me I've looked). If you don't get it you should let me know and I might

I say go for it once you find out what it's been used for.

What do you think?

The individual selling the truck is the third owner and has done absolutely no towing with it. From what he understands the second owner only towed a 16 or 18 ft. boat with it. No fifth wheel trailering or other heavy duty use. Everyone's response so far has been that this is a very good deal on the truck at $12,500.00. I have yet to personally inspect the vehicle but will be doing that soon, thanks again for everyone's help and keep responding to this thread. Thanks, fowler12

What do you think?

I will be sure to let everyone know how the truck checks out. I have spent a lot of time researching the truck (CARFAX, this forum, etc.). So far so good and I will purchase it unless their is some obviously glaring issues that I find. Thanks and keep letting me know what you think! Fowler12
