Have Opportunity to buy high milage 6.4

Hello there guys i am completely new to anything with the 6.4. Ive been around the 7.3s for a while now but a truck popped up that i could buy that got me thinking. To start off its an 08 6.4 CCSB Lariat completely loaded with everything available. The truck is in pretty much excellent shape and is bone stock. Now the kicker its got 195000 on the clock and its never been deleted or anything. It is a company truck that was driven by a "Big Wig" all over the country. So i assume all of the maintanence would have been taken care of being a company truck but the miles worry me. I would be deleting it and doing a mini max and intake and now the second kicker is i could get it for $13000 wich seems like a smokin deal for a fully loaded leather crew cab but 13000 dollars is still 13000 dollars and aint worth it if its past its prime. Also what is the Oasis report i see on here ?? Thanks a lot !!!!

I would try get a look at the engine hours and compare that to the miles. Alot of idling & short trips on these trucks is very hard on the emissions equipment and you wouldn't want to pick up someone else's problem even if you do plan on deleting. Also, an oasis report would be able to tell you about the stuff that's been done on the truck for repairs and maintenance I believe.

As long as all the maintenance was done it should be ok. If you do get it make sure you delete all the emission stuff right away and change all the fluids and filters. Good luck!

With any used vehicle, it's a roll of the dice. You could get a no-problem gem or a money pit.

You can go ahead and add about $2200 to the price of the truck for deletes, fluids and filters. I would actually consider replacing the stock intake as well if it's seen nearly 200k miles (I can't imagine what all is in there).

If you don't mind the possibility of having to get a transmission, radiator, etc. right off the bat, then buy it.

Personally, I try not to buy high-mileage vehicles unless they are dirt cheap. The main reason is because they are hard to sell when it's time. If you plan on keeping the truck forever though, that probably isn't a concern.

For the record, there's a 6.4 on autotrader right now with 345,000 miles. So, they can run a long time.

Where do you get this Oasis report? is it a dealer thing or something else. if still right in the middle on this because it would be nice to have a fully decked truck for once but i already have 2 projects so i guess i really dont want something to work on just seeing if anybody else that had that kind of milage and what they had to replace so far

I wouldnt be all that worried about it as long as the oasis report comes back good. You can get the oasis report from any ford dealership. One thing about the oasis report though is that most of the time only the maintenance done before it was out of warranty will be on there. Ask the owner for maintenance records. I would get it deleted asap if you do end up buying it. Change all fluids as well.

How long ago were those changes/fixes done? If it hasn't leaked in a while, it's probably good to go.

The injectors... well, they go from time to time. How many have been replaced?

There are a lot of trucks available under $20,000 with lower mileage if you're not going with a fully-loaded set up.
