First off do a KBB value on it, see where that puts you. Price seems kinda high for the miles but the truck could be in awesome condition. One owner truck is very good. Ask him general questions like regular maint. on the truck like all oils changed? also ask if the trans is still the original? one thing to check if the motor is healthy is pull the oil fill cap and see if there is a large amount of blow by. If it smokes a little bit thats ok, but if you pull it and there is a large amount thats bad.

I have herd of guys pushing 500,000 with a 7.3 so the miles arent that scary although i have seen trucks closer to 250,000 for around that price, i dont know about your area though. I would want to know about the rest of the drivetrain... tranny, transfer case, differentials ect. was it a daily driver or a puller? if it was pulling and in boost most of its life it will shorten the lifespan some. on the other side if it idled down the highway all the time it will probly run forever. just my 2c.

I think that's a deal. I paid 13k last year for a 99 with over 200 on the clock - mostly because it was clean and rust free. The miles don't mean that much.

thanks for the replys guys. the truck is at a dealer so i dont think they would know anything about how it was cared for. the truck is in houston an i live in louisiana. i think it has an 8ft bed which would be a deal breaker for me. i would like a 6ft bed. how can i tell from just pics? they ad says 6 but it looks real long. the price is also a thousand under kbb also.
