Exclamation Need Advice on possible purchase

I'm looking at an 04 f350 EC SB XLT Sport. White. The truck has 73,000 miles. Has a cold air intake, 4" skyjacker lift kit, Stacks, Fisher plow, 18" wheels and 35" tires. Owner said only issue it had was a cold start one and that it was fixed by a new Cam sensor. Hes asking $22,000

Can Anyone tell me of this is a good buy? Is that too much money for the miles? Whats should i look for signs of abuse?

I'm guessing this isn't at a dealer. Go get the VIN and get a Ford dealership to run an Oasis report, it will tell you all that was repaired under warranty, check to see if you are still under warranty. I just bought an F350 with almost 140k on her, but it ran just as strong as any 6.0 I test drove. I used this thread under 6.0tech files to help determine if the 6.0 was in good condition or not.

What to look for when buying a used 6.0L

As for the price I'm not sure, NADA or KBB should help! In my experience the stock vehicles go for more than ones that are modded.

Good luck!

IMO, thats way to much for an 04. Around here you can get an 06 or even 07 for that. If I were you, I would be patient and keep looking.
