    Do a carfax and see if you can get a maintenance history, too. If it's had no big issues in its past, sounds OK to me.

    I agree. If it's a 7.3 ok... If its a 6.0 stay away!

    not true at all. our farm truck (96 powerstroke) is still going strong with 245k! still has plenty of power, and showing no signs of quiting. my uncles last powerstroke (97) went 356k before he traded it to the company he was working for. today it 712k and still going strong. only replaced a water pump and 2 injectors. pretty good in my opinion. his current truck (03 6.0) has got 286k problem free miles. so the powerstroke is just as GOOD as the cummins!
