Is this a good deal?

I'm looking at a new ex and can't decide if it's a good deal. Please help me out? What is it worth?

Hey, I just bought a 2002 limited 7.3 4x4 with 65000 miles for 21k even, so with that said you could probably find a better deal, but considering the upgrades and having a newer tranny may not be too bad. Looks like a nice truck.

Love those toyotas

It looks like a good deal since they hold value very well. I would make sure they don't have a K&N or type "cold air intake" but it looks good.

K&N is a notoriously bad name in intake systems for diesel engines. Holes in filters are too large in a lot of cases. These holes let too much dirt/dust in and may lead to engine dusting. Typically this is only the case with stock replacement filters and not with complete intake systems but I'm not an expert.

I'd be sure to check the turbo wheel and shaft for any large chunks missing and also for any scraping on the side of the housing. For the shaft, grab it and and push it in/out and up/down and make sure it is solid and doesn't hardly move at all. It has very small tolerances for movement. If it is eaten up, then you could get him to knock a thousand or more off the price for potential engine damage (check the amount of blowby) but also for a potential new turbo and labor. It wouldn't cost you that much but if you can get that much off cause of it do it.
