Powerstroke Purching Advise..

I have owned/driven fords all my life, looking into the used powerstroke market, and everyone has their own opinion on which year and which powerstroke that is better than others. This would be a weekend truck/when i need to haul something - I have a company car (crown Victoria) - here is what i have been looking at/researching - 05-07 6.0L 150K+, 2010 6.4L 218K here is the link for the 2010 for 17,990

Ford : F-250 4WD Crew Cab in Ford | eBay Motors

I appreciate your input, as I new to the diesel world.

A monitor is imperative while on the test drive.

I bought my truck with just over 100k... same truck but an '08 paid $21.5k (I stole it)

it's about to turn 160k and I trust it to drive it anywhere... when it hits 218k I'll still trust it.

But I don't know if I'd trust somebody else's 218k miles at $18k

But I WILL say that's a sharp truck and it looks really clean for the miles

If it was taken care of it wouldn't be a bad deal. Looks good. I would tune and fully delete ASAP just cuz of the high miles. Try to get it for $15xxx
