is it worth it?

2000 Ford Super Duty F-350 SRW Quad Cab 7.3 Powerstroke 4x4 Ranch hand

it has alot of miles but it looks to be in very good condition. my dad and i will be in fort worth next weekend and were going to go take a look at it, if its still for sale. is 300,000 miles too much to worry about if its in good condition? this is probably as much as ill be able to afford and looks great for the price.

thats deff. alot of miles, but it is also a good price, but if it was well mantained, and I looks like it was, it should have many more miles to go.

I'd check all the front end componets, look for rear-end leaks. Check all the fluid sticks and see what the level is and how clean it looks. Go for a test drive and see how the transmission acts.

If you don't drink Dos XX's, you need to start today.

Not that it matters at that price, but the drivers door is a repaint or replacement judging by the photos.
