new guy with lots of questions

well im new to the powerstokes and know damn near nothing about them. i recently found an 01 f350 crewlong bed for what seems like a decent price. i did a pretty good look around and underneath the truck and there were no leaks to my amazment(always thought if it was a diesel it was a leaker) it is a base model truck 4x4 with a standard tranz, 110000 on the clock. there is no bed on the truck think it a utility bed and swapped onto another truck. asking price is 7000$ wondering if this is a good deal, normal or too good to be true if you know what i mean. thanks for the help

welcome, and I dont know.. I would have to see the truck in person. See if you can knock some money off because you have to find a bed... Then get an 08 bed.

sounds like a good deal, just cause its a diesel doesnt mean it should have leaks. you should be able to find a bed. good luck man.
