2008 f350 good buy?

I'm looking at buying a 2008 f350 with 115k. Would this still be a good buy?

Provide as many details as you can to us about the truck. 08 with 115K doesn't really tell anyone much. Also, how much are they asking? pictures or a link to an online for sale thread would help a lot. Is the truck stock? tuned? lift? etc, etc, etc.

Depending on the truck, it may be a great deal or may be something you should run from. I bought my Job 1 08 (considered the "worst" of the 08s) with 162K on it and I'm at 185K now and have replaced an alternator. But provide us with some more info!

It looks in very good condition. They are asking 23500 for it. Its got leather seats. Im going to put up a screenshot of the description if that helps at all.

Without KBB'ing the value, $23,500 seems a bit steep for a rebuilt/theft recovery titled truck.

Rebuilt title is a show stopper for me, especially at that price. Having an R title makes insurance somewhat of a pain and it KILLS the value.

Likewise. Don't know a single person who has bought a rebuilt/theft/branded of any kind titled vehicle and had a good experience. If you paid asking for that truck, I think you would lose about 6-8k as soon as you drove it off the lot strictly because of the branded title.

Rebuilt is a complete turn off. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but banks won't finance a salvage title I believe.
