2008 CC/LB/6.4L/186k $15800 worth looking at? or skip?

After my previous daily driver got t-boned a few weeks back I have been shopping around for a replacement truck. This one recently showed up on my local craigslist..
2008 Ford F250 Crew Cab Long Box $15,800 OBO
Options Include
Power windows
Power Locks
Lock Out hubs
6.4 liter deisel
Brake Controler
Heated Mirrors
4 Auxilary hook ups

186,000 Miles
Gets upto 18 miles per gallon on the highway
Very good running and reliable pickup. The only reason I am selling I fell into a deal on another pickup and decided to take it, otherwise I would still be driving this one every day. I have owned this pickup since the day it was driven off the lot. It is 95% highway miles with limited towing miles.
Doesn't mention trim level, but with heated mirrors and cloth seats I am guessing it is an XLT not an XL (I am going to call him on my lunch).

It has a few things that I don't want.. higher(ish) miles and a long bed, ideally I was hoping to find a CC/SB with less than 150k. But it is only marginally (about $3k) higher than most of the 2004/2005 F250's that I have been looking at and it is quite a few years newer.

FWIW, KBB values this thing between 15k-18k. And I saw a reman 6.4L at the local ford dealership a few weeks back for $12500 (unlimited mile/1yr warranty)

Thoughts? Things to look out for? should I run not walk away? Miles too high?

IMO miles are too high IF he does NOT have a tuner. If most miles are highway without towing, the dpf is likely clogged and the motor has lots of extra wear from the egr & dpf systems. If the truck is deleted and has been some time, then I would consider it. If the stock emissions are on it. Keep looking. Either way - good luck!
