How much should I offer for this truck?

Hey guys, was looking for some input on a diesel truck I have my eye on..

Its here


I imagine the oil cooler is gonna have problems, not sure why else it would be so cheap. I want a 6.4 but they cost too much at this point, should I hop into this 6.0 and bullet proof it? Or wait and save a few more months for a 6.4?

Thx everyone

I just paid $16,000 for a 2004 F 450 flat bed crew cab 4x4. It has 106,000. I shopped and compared and mine was setup for a goose neck which was what I was looking for. It was listed for $17,995 at a dealer.

I have a 6.4 in a company truck and they have good power. It isn't as noisy as the 6.0 because of the injectors buzzing away. But 6.0 did great pulling a goose neck with a 7000 LB tractor on it. Night and day compared to my old 6.9 L Ford diesel.

When did you pay that because that is a bit much. I only paid 10,000 for mine at about the same miles.

There is no way to tell what visiting the cooler is in unless they tell you it's bad or you put a monitor on it. It's hard to say what it's worth online without knowing. At least for me I would need to go look at it and drive it before I even considered entertaining any offer.

Thx for the input, Ill see if I can borrow my buddies monitor to check it out. So I should let it warm up and run about 65mph and see if the delta between ect and eot is more than 15* right? Besides that, oil leaks, degas bottle? Make sure it rides good. If i pick this truck up i need a shop in va to do the bullet proofing

I would borrow one if you can. Run around 65 for a good 15-20 minuets after the eot is at 190 and keep am eye one what the difference between the eot and the eot is. Also make a note as to the level of the coolant in.the Degas bottle is after it's warmed up. Should be about half an inch to one inch below the low level if the bottle hasn't been updated. You should open.the Degas bottle.after driving.it to see if you can see or smell diesel in the coolant. look for.oil leaks but that's about all your going to be able to.do unless they give it to you overnight. My dealer gave it to me for the weekend but they are all different. You might be able to get a warranty for a different company. I don't know anything about that though I never had warranty.

Well then things are going normal for me LOL. My guide lines were pretty narrow; crew cab, 4x4, manual tranny, goose neck ready, no rust (I'm in the rust belt) and most importantly - wife was on board and I didn't want to mess that up. Really cheap financing too.

Quick NADA check shows Clean Retail is 21,675 and Clean Trade-In is 17,850. I paid just over clean trade-in value for mine last fall.
