Considering this 09

I have been looking for a diesel for a while. i have come across this one, it's 09 with 124k miles, but from the ad it has 24k on a new tranny and 16k on a new engine. Is this a concern, should I walk away? I have not talked to the guy yet, just thought it was a clean looking truck. I really don't know anything about the 6.4 to begin with, but can't find a 7.3, and I am not buying a 6.0. Lead me down the correct path please. Thanks

Seems like a lot of money for the miles to me. It looks nice abd clean. It shouldn't of needed a new trans or motor by now.

yea bro, thats too much. looks like a nice truck, but if its had replacement engine and trans. looks like this one has been used to be raced up and down the highway, which nothing wrong with it, but i would keep looking.

Check out carmax bud, i picked up my 08 xlt cc from them for 25K back in october. might want to give them a go, plus you will have a warranty or get an extended one from them.

I agree with both of them it is to much money. Firstly it has had a motor and trans for 1 reason and that is that it wasn't taken care of just driven. you have vin and i could tell you more.

yea, i wouldnt buy it. i would keep looking, i mean dont get me wrong, looks like a nice looking truck, but with the two key things the truck needs having been replaced, i would turn an eye real quick.

No I don't, I may email the guy in the morning and see if I can get it for the heck of it.
