new to diesel

Hello all,

I'm looking to purchase a diesel and i'm partial to Fords...so I figured this would be a great start.

Currently Stationed at Fort Riley and driving a great 96' F150....but looking to upgrade and buy a F250 diesel.

The wife and I are moving to Alaska and plan on getting a camper.

I'm going to go look at this
2006 Ford F250 XLT White Powerstroke Diesel 4x4 4dr 1 owner

I've got them down to $12,000 and It seems to be the best "local" deal I can find.

What do you think?

Thanks
