Should I buy this 06 f250?

I am going to look at this on Monday and wondering what you guys thought of this truck. My gut tells me that I should be all over this deal. Also, do you folks know of any powerstroke mechanic in Dallas that I can take this to for a pre purchase inspection? Thanks in advance.

Looks sharp, no glaring issues. If you go see it, look at the panel gaps-the space between the doors and cab, fenders and doors, etc. Basically look for signs of bodywork. Make sure it has the proper coolant in it, and buy a scangauge from autozone. Monitor the ECT vs EOT delta (difference) on a test drive. If it exceeds 15 degrees, negotiate, as a new oil coloer and egr cooler are going to be needed in short order.

It looks great and thats a good price. Check the temps and look for signs of a puking degas bottle.. I know I would be checking that trk out if it was in my area for that price. 200k miles isnt that bad if it was taken care of. See if you can get a Oasis report from one of your local dealers with that VIN # and see what kinda ford shop work has been done to it.. Get a carfax also..
