What do you think of this 1999 F250?

I currently have a 07 Tundra, but need another truck for bigger landscape projects and to tow dump trailer. (Can't rent one with 1/2 ton)

This '99 F250 has 131K miles. At what point do problems start occurring?

This truck wouldn't be used everyday for mowing/maintenance work. I'd still use the Tundra for that.

Any opinions would be much appreciated. Thanks

While the truck still has plenty of life left in it, it has been my experience that as soon as you hit 100,000 Miles a trucks starts nickeling and diming you to death. Tranny might need to be rebult soon.... new starter.... new hub bearings...ball joints...u joints etc...... I have an 01 f-250 with 108,000 miles and although its a great trucks, every time I turn around there is a new stupid problem to deal with.
