Ford : F-250 XLT Extended Cab Pickup 2-Door in Ford | eBay Motors

My name is Jesse and I am looking to purchase my first diesel in the next few weeks. I've been browsing this site for a week or so trying to learn all I can. Can someone tell me if this truck is worth looking at. Should I be worried about the milage? I've heard these motors can go over a half million miles. It will be my daily driver for a few months then just be used to haul my RZR and pull a camper on weekends. Thanks for any advice.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

It looks clean, that's for sure.
Don't know the numbers for a 1996.
You could look up the truck on:
Kelly Blue Book
OR
Edmunds
Both of these places would give you a ball park figure to see if the dealer is jacking up the price or not and could give you some negotiating room.

I'm more concerned about the miles. The price is about right for what I'm seeing in my area.

Thanks for the welcome. But should I be worried about the miles on this truck? I'm going to look at it tomorrow morning.
