Stroker 8, thanks for the reply! And yea, that was my first thought too. I tried to talk him down to 13k and he won't budge because he had to replace the turbos and injectors shortly after he got it on his lot. And he claims to be right on the money on the Kelly Blue Book Value.

I would pass on it. ECLB is not a very desirable bed/cab configuration, high miles, and unless it's a lariat, it's priced a little high IMO.

KBB is anything but "on the money"

Something about the ECLB's, especially lifted, just look so right. Got any pics of the truck? Might be worth it with new turbos and injectors if the condition is above average for the miles.

base model ECLB = NO THANK YOU

I got my CCLB lariat with 108k for $21.5k and I have about $20k in my CCSB lariat that had 97k on it. If it were a crew cab with 150k? $15k would be fair, but ECLB? base model? 190k? I'd pass

Yea, you're right drunk on diesel. That's why I've kinda held off on it so far. But the long bed kinda appeals to me for use as primarily a farm truck hauling hay, bagged feed, fence post's, etc. where a big payload is plus. And I hardly ever haul passengers with me. Still, I'm kinda scared of that odometer with 190k on it.

Eh, yea. Base model XL with 190k? A fully loaded Lariat would be closer to the 15k asking price, that one there is probably closer to 10-13k IMO.

Follow up... I bought it, $13k

I couldn't pass it up! The dealer had the fleet maintenance record book for it and it had been babied. I'm in love with the truck. Gonna start dressing it up this week. It's going to work as a land surveying field crew rig.

I think $13K is a decent deal. If it is going to be used as a farm work truck, I am glad its an XL (Base model is XL right guys?) and not a lariat.

:ORG welcome:

Is it 4x4? I might of missed that part.
