    I was just browsing some trucks today and this one came across the board.
    1997 Ford F350 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel
    166k Miles on it.
    XLT
    They want $7900 for it, but i was thinking of offering them $7k cash.
    Do you think this is worth it?

    sounds like a pretty good deal, what cab style is it. The 350's have the d-60 very heavy duty front axle. Can put a big plow on it.:)

    My 97 F350 only has 70k on it and its a diesel. But i was unsure if 160k was very high mileage on a diesel.
