Opinions on buying a truck

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a black 08 f350 cc/sb lariat. It has the 20" wheels, chrome grille/running board, navigation but no moon roof. The truck is spotless, even the bed doesnt have a scratch on it. The truck has 76,000 on it. The Ford Stealership is asking 29k for the truck. What are your guys's opinions? I read alot about 08's having issues but im meticulous with maintinance and have access to a good/cheap mechanic/fabricator if need be. Plus the engine still has a warranty on it, and plan on getting an extended warranty on everything in a few months. Lets here them.

haha ford stealership what a funny name but oh so true.
i mean that is a pretty good deal...but like gunman said there are other trucks out there and its only 3 years old has that many miles on it that what you would start to see on a truck that was maybe 4-5 years old....just something to look at.

4" Banks turbo back exhaust.w/5" tip
4" Banks down pipe
Banks Big Hoss turbo waste gate
6" SKY JACKER
35" Nitto All-Terrains

I still say look for a new 2010. I was looking at 08's between 8,000 and 15,000 miles for around the 34k range, but ended up picking up a new one for 39k.

Leveling kit
35" Nittos
Bushwacker cutout fender flares

Future mods
King coilovers leveling kit

Where did you find a truck with 8k miles for $34k? I looked on Autotrader and several forums. Every truck selling for near $34k had 40k+ miles. There was an 09 KR with 8k miles local selling for $43k + ttl. I paid 2k more and bought a new 2010.
