    Thats a lot to spend on a truck that you don't know the history on. I would have it checked out really goodby a mechanic. get it up on a rack and inspect the suspension and look for bad leaks, or history of previous leaks. A lot of places will steam clean the underside of a truck so you can't see all the oil leaks and crap that is stuck up there.

    It was at a local dealer and went and looked at it and it was in horrible condition. It wouldn't start and the seats were all ripped up. I told them thanks but no thanks. Really appreciate the advice.

    It's a little high. I almost bought an F-350 XLT Crew 6.5 bed 4x4 loaded 7.3 auto for 15,000 with 145,000 miles and still had lots of power and life yet.

    That truck with 200K is worth $8,000, not a penny more, especially since it's a manual.

    I rotated my F350 XLT CC srw4x4 7.3 with just a tick under 100k and it went outright (no trade in) for 20,900 clams. The truck was perfect and had a some nice options on it. In my area, 1 ton diesel (7.3) 4x4's don't last long on the block.

    Trouble is to replace that unit almost cost me another 20k, but it was a Lariat:)

    it was an 02 model
