Looking at a 2008

I found a 2008 F-350 4 door long bed for sale today.
It has 50,554 miles on it and they want 33,000 for it.
Its fully loaded with black leather and all.
Its all stock too. Is this to much for the truck or not.
What all do I need to look for.
Thanks.

That's a pretty good price if it is fully loaded. And just run a oaisis report to see what has been done to the truck.

It looks like a cc version of my truck! 33k is a fair price for it.

Make sure you check the radiator for leaks, as its a known issue. Typically the leak will occur on the drivers side and you can see it dripping on to the frame. If it is leaking make the dealer do something about it before your purchase. Sometimes it can be a pain to get it fixed under warranty. The TSB number for the fix is 9-23-01. More info on that here tsb 09-23-01 radiator leaks - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

It's a good looking truck, I can see it has the 20" wheels on it, but it can't be fully loaded 'cause it doesn't have the cab lights. What about a sunroof and the aux. switches?

It does not have a sunroof. That's the only thing it doesn't have.It does have the aux. switches.
So I don't know what it is.

That's what i did when i got my 05. They wanted 33,000 for it... went in and offered 27,500 for it. Sounds like this truck is an 08 version of my truck. Don't go over 30,000. Good looking truck.
