should i buy an 04 6.0

Should I buy an 04 6.0?

I found a truck at an auto auction for 6900 with power locks and windows cruise tilt etc.
It's cloth xlt, 2wd. I don't know the mileage yet. Going to call tmrw and find out.

Is an 04 a big no no to go and buy or would it be a hit or miss far as being a money pit?
