Just bought another 6.0L

I just bought a new 6.0L. Well its new to me. It has VERY high miles but is in excellent condition and runs and drives great. Carfax 100% clean and OASIS 100% nothing on it. Im still a little sketchy though with 218,000 miles how shes gonna hold up. Its a 2006 CCLB XLT. Has a leveling kit and stock wheels and tires. Never lifted. So let me stop blabbing Im kinda exicited bout the new truck. What do you guys think of the mileage being so high?

Get the transmission flushed at the dealer, it's the only way to get all the fluid out.
