Buying a low milage 07

I having been reading this forum and searching, I am still on the fence about buying a 6.0. I have found a few low milage 07s for decent prices. What concern should I have about low milage 07s? We are talking F350 DRW 4x4 trucks with 12-49,000 miles on them.

Thanks

Take the VIN of the truck to a Ford dealership. Ask for an OASIS report it should be free of charge. This will list all warranty work that has been done. Might help some with your decision.

Here is some reading material. Get a Oasis report and take a monitor/gauges with you for your test drive.

07s with low miles can be a great buy. Usually with the miles your talking about, they were summer trailer queens or toys. As suggested, know what your looking for. Make sure it is a cold start for the day and put on a monitor for the test drive, if you can get one. It would be the best $160ish you can spend. If you can get it on a diagnostic machine, even better. It could save you thousands in price or repairs. If it has a problem or a potential problem, no big deal if you know going in.
