6.4 buying advice??

Hello,

I found a 08 f250 CCSB.. 93k miles without a warranty at a dealer
The vehicle was used for 18k miles by a corporate... then purchase by an
individual who drove about 17-20k miles a year..

Carfax is clean

The truck was in washington it has some rust on the exhaust and on the undercarriage.. The Truck is stock except for some ugly XD wheels..
No Black smoke either.

Should i purchase a extended warranty since this truck is out of warranty?
Where to have a Pre Purchase diesel inspection

Will this truck make it another 300k miles?

price $22,5

$22K for that sounds pretty fair.
Extended warranty....???I personally dont believe in them. They like to play games.
Another 300K miles ?? I dunno.....do you think you gonna live to be 100 years old ??
I think a 6.4L to go close to 400K mls has not been proven yet.Too soon for that.
Good luck with your purchase & delete it as soon as you can.

I would check it with a third party (who knows them well) for sure.
It dosnt hurt to negotiate the seller to include the ext. warranty in that price.
At last if you want "piece of mind" you can buy your own E. W.
You can negotiate that alot better YOURSELF vs. they do it for you

No....not really.
If I ever need help or work done, I have a friend of mine (diesel tech) who helps me out.
Wish you the best of luck with the purchase.

I bought my truck with an aftermarket warranty- EasyCare. Ford owns that company, I have had about $7000.00 in repairs covered without a single hitch! And my truck was deleted and tuned when I bought it. I've had belts, tensioners, coolant reservoir, ac compressor and whole ac system, and bedplate seals (oil pan gaskets 3 total) all replaced under the warranty.

Oh- I bought the warranty when I bought the truck and negotiated the price of the warranty down to $2000 from $4200-ish. I got the gold level warranty. Boy I'm glad I got it or my truck would be sitting in the driveway for the bedplate replacement job- it requires either cab off or tranny out job which I don't have the tools or shop to do that kind of work.
