Should I buy this truck today

It's a 2006 xlt sport 4x4 crew cab short bed. It is a bone stock one owner truck with 133k on it. They are asking 16500. Is this a good price? Also the miles scare me. Is it going to need a tranny soon and what else will need to be replaced in the near future. Please help me asap

I agree...I gave $11,500 for my Lariat with a little over 200K on it. A lot of it is your location too. Some trucks are worth more in some locations.
