New to Fords from California

Hey guys hows it going, my name is George and i'm from California (Central Valley). So I am new to Fords and Diesels. My first/last truck was a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Short Bed.

But then on July 20th a lady ran a stop sign and drove into me, totaling my chevy;

So i am not in the market for a new truck, possibly a ford diesel which is what led me here.

Now i am not sure if this is the wrong area to post this so please forgive me but my lack of knowledge but i had a question about whats a good price for a f250.

The truck I have found is a 2004 F-250 Lariat Crew Cab 6.0

Clean title
44,000 miles
On its second turbo (says its upgraded from the factory)
Dual power heated seats
windows have been tinted 5%
Banks high ram intake manifold
AFE stage 3 cold air intake
Straight pipe with a RBP 6" tip
Transmission has a mag-hytec trans pan
Super Lift 10"
Auburn Posi in the rear which is a steerling 10.5
Front axle is a DANA 60
4:56 Gears
2007 front end conversion: grill, head lights, bumper
Tailgate is off of a 2010
Rear bumper off of an 2010 f-250.

Front fenders have been replaced with oem fenders that need to be repainted/color-matched

He is asking $21,000

So i was wondering if i could get your opinions on this truck. Sorry about the long post but thank you for your time

Looks like it has alot of cool stuff on it. Your gonna want to invest on a monitor. 140-160 for a scanguage. Right now the truck could be a rolling cash napom bomb and you'd never know-

Welcome to the site and good luck!

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

Sorry to hear about your Chevy - I wished people would pay better attention.

You might want to run the info in Kelly Blue Book - Official Kelley Blue Book New Car and Used Car Prices and Values
Edmunds - New Cars, Used Cars, Car Reviews & Car Prices |
Either of those sites could tell you if $21K is in the ball park.
