20,000 miles is low miles for an 08. What are they asking for it.

^^^^^^^^what he said.

Also, what kind of tuner/exhaust/tires/etc., and why is it being sold?

To answer your question--moving from 97 to 08 is like moving from a box colored TV to run to the nicest flat screen plasma you've ever seen. Not bashing on your truck...just saying the advances in technology, HP, suspension, etc. are night and day.

My 2 cents.

Is it this one?

2008 F250 FX4 in Suffolk, VA

Granted I've only had my 2010 for not even a week, but I came from a 2006 6.0 PSD and it is night and day difference. The ride and interior is dramatically different (better). The 6.4 untuned feels much better than my 6.0 with IDP tunes.

As has already been mentioned, that is a very low mileage 2008. My 2010 has 33,300 miles on it.

Check out these other local dealers who sell a lot of lifted trucks/diesels...

The truck drives really nice. The gauge cluster is hard to read steering is stiff fab tech four link coil lift nitto all terrains pacer 12" wide 18"s maybe super clean inside and out some sort of cat back exhaust S&B intake very pretty under the hood and super chips programmer in the center console and has a small back seat it's a F250 but has a solid axel up front and ford manual hubs only thing I'd add is lineX bedliner

Honestly, I would negotiate the price down even further despite the low mileage and mods. My truck was listed for nearly $46,000 and I got it for $41,000. You should get them closer to $30,000 to $32,000 and some will argue even that is high for an '08.

If you get a chance before the sale, grab the VIN and find someone who can pull an OASIS report. That'll give you the history of the truck if it has been taken in for routine maintenance and repairs, warranty or otherwise.

Sharp truck, though...good luck with the purchase!

Thanks for the advice/opinions on this they printed out a car fax for it and looked good on maintenance and little stuff two owners and they took super good care of it for sure the bed caps are scratched pretty bad and so is the bed and can see where they rattle canned the suspension and under body seeing the super chips box was a little unexpected though

OASIS is better than a car fax, it's Ford's maintenance and warratny records for that truck, will give build date and other details.
