looking at a 99 F250 xlt crew cab short box

tonight after work..

146,000 turns. never had a gooseneck or 5th hitch in it.

looked at it last week and the wife seemed to like it. a few hail dents on the hood, dent in the front fender (near the headlight/hood area). oil pan looks to be ok (a little surface rust but didn't appear serious), no fluid leaks or residue. needs new tires and a windshield.

the guy wanted $10,500 for it and reduced the price to $10,000 after i talked to him about all the repairs i'd have to do (PDR the hood, windshield, fender, tires).

2 new batteries, all new battery cables (power and grounds), new starter (as of saturday), new injectors and glow plugs, new brakes.

anything else i should look for?

With all those repairs needed you better get the price reduced some more. I understand that it is petty stuff that needs to be repaired. But PDR is not cheap, and batteries is almost 200 bucks right there, cables another 50 bucks, Windshield your looking at 250 by itself. New tires are around 600-700 depending on what you want. I would offer 9,000 for it. That is if you really like it. If your having doubts then I say get an oasis reoport on the truck. Which can be done through this site if you are a premium member.

I believe he's saying that it has new batteries and cables, I could be wrong, sounds like a good deal to me!

Remove the air filter and look inside the intake hoses for signs of dust and the turbo impeller should have square sharp corners. If the impeller is worn or there are signs of dust then I’d worry, a new engine can cost around $10,000. Rebuilding mine cost me $4000 doing all the work myself. Check the tranny fluid for level, smell, and color and ask about tranny maintenance as well as pay close attention to how it shifts while test driving. A rebuilt tranny cost me $2000 doing all the work myself.
In my signature link under “powerstroke general” There is a picture of my bad turbo impeller that should have been a sign of my dusted engine before I bought it if I knew what I was doing back then .

guy wanted $10k. brought it to the shop, needs ball joints. that added to the rest of the needed repairs comes to about $3,000

offered him $7,000, but even if he took that, i'd probably run away. lack of maintenance seems to be his theme.

anyone in Kansas City or Texas want to look at a truck for me?
