2001 F-250 To buy or not to buy???

Im looking at purchasing a 2001 F-250, has a 4 inch lift, with 39s, and the 7.3 with a 170,000 miles. Do you folks think i should purchase this beast?? How much should I pay?? Is this to many miles ? The truck is from Florida and looks great.

Send a message via AIM to southern7.3
what are you going to be using the truck for. For work IMO 39s are too big but if you will drive it on the weekends and stuff like that then I reckon its fine. I wouldnt want a daily driver with over 37s on it but thats just me. The 7.3 is just getting broke in good with 170k. check for blow by and oil leaks. Join the .org and get an oasis ran on it and make sure its not a lemon

O my goodness if you could do that I couldn't thank you enough. Here is the issue... I live 1000 miles away from Jacksonville where the truck is at. So I have no way of even seeing it or driving it. If you could do that for me it would be greatly appreciated.

4" suspension lift+39" tires? i didn't think a 4" would allow anything over 37's unless alot of trimming?
