things to look for on high milage trucks:

-does it have a gooseneck hitch? if so it may have pulled some heavy trailers and those will wreck any truck if pulled excessively..

-is the frame rusted? we are talkin excessive rust not surface rust..

-is the front end in good shape? u dont want to have to rebauld one of those..

typically diesel engines have a lifetime of 500,000 to 600,000 miles if taken care of.. if the 01 ur lookin at is pretty clean and runs like a top then id say 164,000 miles is just over broken-in...

i have a 1999 and it has 278,000 and it will walk-off from a new truck and its stock... ;D maybe...

Depends on what he is selling it for, what ever it is start 2 grand below his asking and make him work with you to something.
