Buying used truck help

Hi im from michigan, and new to forums but i figured this would be a great place to start for help. I currently have an 01 7.3 but have been looking at an 08 f250 lariot supercab 4x4. It has about 242,000 miles on it and there asking 10,900, any advice on what to look for or opinions on the price, to much? To many miles? I do not know much about the 6.4l.

If i did get it i would do a dpf delete, egr delete and tune. Thanks for the help in advance

I'm surprised they didn't send it to auction with that many miles on it.

I don't know your area, but around me you can normally buy nice 08's with around 100k miles for 27k give or take. Other areas may be different.
