I bought a 2005 XL for 20k in 2007 and now I cannot replace it for less then 15k. The old diesels are holding their value very well. Not like a gasser.
But get a gauge, check the coolant and go shopping, good trucks from scared owners will show, just don't let them know what you know and price them down.
My cheap truck and my friend's 6.0's have been great performers with proper coolant maintenance. Last summer I met a camper that would have sold his cheap just to stop having to clean his turbo at the dealer twice per year, it was a low milage XLT 4X4.
PS. SCangaugeII programed for the 6.0L x-gauges will also read 6.4L data required for truck quality test.
