Question need advice on my next truck!

Good afternoon all, I need some advice on longevity. I previously owned a 2008 f250 Lariat and had a massive case of brain farts and traded it in for a 1/2 ton GMC Z71 gas burner. Needless to say I have regretted it just about since day 1. Well I am at a point where I believe I would like to get back into an F250 and have seen several options but of course this time around I will be a little specific about the features, colors , etc on the new one. So I found one I like and it's about a 200 mile drive but if its the one its def worth it.

I like everything but the mileage and therein lies my question. What do ya'll think about a 2008 with 173k selling for $18k?

It is an FX4 with leather and a few goodies like reverse sensor...

I guess my concern is parts beginning to fail just due to normal wear and tear...In your expert opinions, should i hold out for one with fewer miles or snatch up a nice truck at a nice price?

Any advice or comments are welcome!

Is it a crew cab short bed? Long bed? Depending on the truck that may or may not be that great of a price. We need more information, condition of exterior? Interior? How are the tires? Is it stock?
