Anyone wanna tell me if this is a decent deal?

Looking at a 2008 F250 CCSB, it is a lariat, has just about everything except nav and roof. This would be my first ford, Typically i dont worry about mileage on a diesel too much This one has nearly 88k on it. he has service records, never used it for towing, other than jetskis and it looks to be in pretty good shape for its mileage (texas truck)

I can get it for 27000 and shipping for 700

Is this a good deal, or should i look for less miles?

Thanks

Typically i dont put much more than 20k on a vehicle before i get rid of it, but i was looking at keeping my next purchase a little longer.

It is completely stock, never had a tuner or exhaust. etc

Not bad, I would look around a little - I saw some when I was looking with a lot less miles for around 30k. Not easy to find, but they are out there, they just move quickly.

With the rebates out on 2010 models, you could get in a brand new for for another 10 to 12 k depending on the dealer.

I thought about a new one, just not logical at this point, the depreciation would suck even at its discounted price. I have been looking for a solid 3 months, I agree they come around with fewer miles for just a bit more, but they are few and very far between. I really had my budget set for about 32k, but the way i see this one, more money for goodies, I just dont want issues. I guess he had platnium bumper to bumper, so it has full warranty for 2k more miles, I'd pry have it taken in and have them check all of the recalls, service bulletins. before it rolls over 90k.

Ive only had one vehicle with 90k plus on it, and that was a long time ago, I dont think i should have to worry much about a diesel, but I am still new to the 6.4

I just picked up one for 32K with 78K miles on it. 100% stock powertrain just has a 6in lift and brand new 37in Toyo MT's. Seached for a while, CC Diesel Ford's are pretty hard to find for sale in my area. Ending up getting one from a state over.

me personally if i were guna get this truck i would pay 10? maybe just because of millage yes its a lariat but millage will make or break any vehicle you are looking at buying. Also yes its a diesel and they run for every but ur guna have a 6.4 under there that has been driving alll the time, if it were a 7.3 i doubt i would be saying this. oh well its your money and your option, but i would keep looking or get this truck for dirt cheep.

Lots of miles for a truck that is about 2.5 years old, normal milage for a year by dealer standards is 15,000 miles a year, I would offer them around $22,000 and no more, there are better deals out there, shoot I just turned 10,000 last night and I have a 08...keep looking in my opinion.

I bought an 08 with just over 100k. Obvious highway miles and truck was in great shape. I did the delete and it quite making the oil level rise and is one nice truck. The price you are talking is a fair deal. My rule of thumb when looking for a truck with mileage was to buy low enough to do one major repair (~5k) and still be at trade in value. Good luck. I am already looking to trade in for 60k dollar air conditioned seats.
