2008 F350 6.4 w/ 220k miles, buy or pass up?

I'm looking at a 2008 F350 CC Lariat 4X4 w/ 220k miles on it and am wavering whether or not to buy it. Its a nice enough tuck with normal rock chips and wear for that kind of mileage and should clean up well. Its got a clean carfax and drives/runs well too. I'm just not sure about the mileage issue. Would I ever be able to resell it?

Anything specific to look for?

I think I can get for around $16k if that helps.

TIA

I would say you don't buy a truck like that with selling it in mind. You buy it to drive it until it's dead.

A 2008 with that kind of mileage, is a good chance it's mostly freeway. I believe these motors will do 350,000+ if properly maintenance , and not idled to much.

I'd be more worried about interior rattles/cracks/electrical gremlins over engine problems.

Is the Dpf still on it? Id really check it out hard and don't pay too much. If the Dpf and cat have been deleted I would feel more comfortable about it

My Ford dealer said Ford expects the bottom end of these engines to last 500K with no real issues. As long as you maintain them right.

When I bought my first 7.3 I was told that the engine would last 250k lol when I sold it it had 426000 I burnt 1me piston and put new injectors on it. What im getting at is the potential is there in the 6.4 if you maintain it. If I didn't trust the engine, I wouldn't have spent 50k on it.
