Getting an f250

Im going to look at this f250 in a few days 2008 Ford F-250 4 Door Crew Cab - Used Vehicle Details at Anderson Ford-Mercury - Your Cleveland, Texas Ford dealer

Ive never had a powerstroke before so any tips on what to look out for before I buy would be great.

That looks really nice. But.....it looks like it has been tuned. The exhaust is not stock either, and is black inside the pipe. Is this a bad thing....to me no! but who knows if ford will give you any sort of warranty on the truck if it has been tuned. Also I am pretty sure it is a federal offense for Ford to sell a vehicle with the emmissions system removed. However, it will probably be a really solid truck, alot of people that own 2008+ Diesels remove that stuff anyway, so if you were planning on doing that, and it is in fact tuned, its just one less hing for you to do. Just make sure you cover all that prior to buying it. Tuned you will get better power and mpg, but it is illegal, and may void your warranty, again talk to Ford prior to buying it. Check coolant level make sure its good. Make sue all TSB have been addressed and recalls have been performed, less of a headache for you to deal with later. Good Luck

Ill have to find a list of those tsb and recalls im sure there on this site. Alot of good info on here. Im new to these trucks but when I check it out and it does in fact have a dpf delete and a tune I could probably get them to lower the price instead of replacing all that stuff.

Don't pay anymore than 30K for that truck. Much better deals out there.

IMO that is too much money for the truck. I bought my 2009 FX4 loaded except navigation and camera and no chrome package which i didn't want anyway because it is "plastic chrome" for $38,000. amd it had 4,000 miles on it. I think you can get a better deal with less miles. Just my opinion! Good luck!
