    I saw a F350 Powerstroke diesel at a car lot that I think would be great for pulling my trailer, but was wondering if the mileage was too high. The truck is a 95 crew cab long bed, leather interior, looks really clean and has 219,000 miles. Selling price is $6550.
    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have a 1995 F-350 PSD as well with about 230K on it. Runs like there is no tomorrow. $6550 is a great price IMO. It will go at least another 150K or more. I'd buy it in a hearbeat...good luck.

    My opion is thats alot of miles. It will start having lots of problems, even if the motor will run for another 100K miles. Transmission, brakes, steering,cooling system,and every other system or component on the engine. I would pass on it myself.

    Why not look for an Isuzu NPR for around $10k? You could find one with a box or put a Landscape Body on it. Then you would have a really functional vehicle. By the way, the turning radius on the Isuzu is less than that PSD.
