I'm new to this forum btw,That sounds like a good deal just check the kelly blue book value for that truck and if I where you I'd take it on a test drive on the free way before you buy always do that when you buy a used truck, theres a guy on youtube who has a great video on buying used powerstroke diesel truck go to his website its called POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners & Mechanics Hope this helps

I would say thats a good price. Some things you might want to check for are: straightness of the body, good strong shifts, any possible leaks under the truck, excessive rust, and fluid levels - for signs of excessive oil consumption.
