whats it worth!? help! PICS!

Hey guys, brand new here, and brand new to the diesel world, so excuse me if I sound ignorant. I'm sure its been beaten to death on the forum, but i need to know what you would VALUE the truck at? I'm considering picking up a black 2008 crew cab short box lariat 6.4l, and after doing some reading and searching, it seems as if some of these trucks are hit and miss. The reason I ask is because I have the opportunity to pick this truck up for a good deal, but will have zero money to put into it. Here is how the truck sits, and what it has had done to it. Would you guys steer clear or pull the trigger? It has 203k miles, but had a rebuild and was bulletproofed at 187k. The original owner who did all the work owned a company and all the miles are highway miles traveling to and from his different sites...

6.4L rebuild-187,746miles
Valvetrain upgrade-187,746
6.4L oil cooler-187,746
Heavy Duty Pistons-187,746
6.4L ported fuel rails-187,746
Egr delete-187,746
Dpf delete w/flopro 4" exhaust-187,746
H&s programmer-187,746
Complete fluid flush-187,746
Sky jacker steering stabilizers-187,746
Ball joints all around-202,312
Skyjacker stabilizer that replaced stock stabilizer-202,312
Track bar-202,312
Tie rods-202,312
Brake calipers-202,312

Also has 6" skyjacker lift, 37's, recon headlights, and H&S programmer

So, with your guys knowledge, what would you value the truck at? It's extremely clean, and he has receipts for everything. Again, Thanks for the help.

He's asking 24k, which i know is steep. But it'll be a trade for my G8 GT worth 18k or so.

I just asked him and he said by fleet truck he meant it was owned by a gentleman who owned a company and had to travel around to all of his different sites/locations. It is a private sale. All highway miles I would assume.

I definitely think that it's a little high, but the question at hand is is it worth the 18k my car is worth? Or am i better off keeping my car which i know is mechanically sound.

I actually dont think its that high at all.

You have to remember, even thought its at 200K.

Its had a complete engine rebuild, suspension and brake rebuild.

That leaves the drive axles, ac, starter, alt, fuel system and Trans as the only major wear compenents to fail down the road.

24 is a pretty fare price as ive seen plenty of 150K + trucks selling for that and theres no rebuilt engine.

Just the upgraded on that truck for the serive are a solid 12-15K

I would do the deal for 24 if thats the bottom price. You can always ask for 22 or something but in all honesty 24 isnt that bad.

You better start saving 3K for a trans and put a 1K aside for fuel system repairs later because im sure those will be the next to let go.

Thats the problem, is im a broke college student and I feel as if even though he spent plenty of money on the rebuild, there are still things that are going to be falling apart like you mentioned, that arent exactly cheap either. Any idea what the trans is good for on these, approximately?

It was done in a shop, with all the receipts. And I actually would be straight trading him my g8 gt worth about $17-18k. So now what do you think? ha

I'm not sure yet of the valvetrain, or what the elite valvetrain upgrade consists of even. But it was rebuilt in a shop with receipts.
