Just askin but am I the only one that would be worried that it only has 30,000 miles? Dont get me wrong gorgeous rig very nice truck but I would have to ask why such low miles...and unless their was a good reason I might walk away thinking something was up. Or am I just being paranoid...

Ehhhh... maybe the PO didn't use it much. There was a guy that used to be in our chapter that has an early 99 7.3 that only has 50,000 or so miles on it now.

An older man purchased the truck from a local ford dealer and he died and i got a good deal from a buddy of mine who works at a dealership. My dad has a 99 f250 he bought it new and it only has 50,000 miles on it. We both have company vehicles thats how his has low miles so i plan on keeping low miles on mine as well.
