Would you buy this truck?

I am currently looking into purchasing my first diesel. Just sold my 2002 5.4L Supercrew and want to get a 3/4 ton. After doing the research I am going to go with a 6.0L.

I live in Oklahoma but am going to go to Dallas tomorrow to take a look at this. Carfax and OASIS reports are clean, minus a HPOP and #2 fuel injector replacement around 50,000 miles. Would you all have second thoughts about purchasing this?

Just my opinion but that's allot of cash for a 151k mile truck . I would search the truck forums on here . There are allot of nice trucks on here and most of them are very well taken care of .

I have looked quite extensively in the DFW area for a decent deal...I really dont want to spend more than 20k and my requirements are a crew cab, short bed, with leather. No lift (leveling kit OK) and never been chipped. Haha if I am going to spend that kind of money I guess I can be picky.

I agree . I just think you can find a lower mileage truck for 20k . Is year important ?

I would prefer 04-06, depending on mileage and the condition of the truck,

ok this makes sense in my head but may not you but 151k miles is not a bunch on a 6.0 but it is alot if the truck is new to you...and that does seem a little steep on the price even if it is a kr

There is a guy on here that had a very nice low mileage 6.0 for sale , I think 04 . Don't remember exactly what he wanted for it . You can get them shipped fairly cheap or do what I did when I bought my 08 , one way ticket and drive her home , get to know her .

I understand that at 150k the 6.0 is "just getting broken in" but I would feel more comfortable if it had <120k. If it were around that I would probably pull the trigger. I am just not sure...
