    IMO, there are way lower mile trucks for the same price, if not a few grand more.

    Good miles out of a 6.0 if its original. Also, there are a lot of other parts that add up to replace. Front end work isn't cheap! But thats still a good looking truck, but it should be dirt cheap with those miles!! The oil PSI doesn't look too bad at idle though...

    that thing looks to be taken good care of not like some of thses higher milage trucks i have seen. i would go look at it and offer about 3500. still a good looking truck and it was taken care of.

    My work truck is almost the same truck as that. Its an ext cab long bed. It has 260k and still climbing. It still has the origina motor and trans. Doesnt use any oil. I wouldnt be scared of that truck. Looks like it has been very well taken care of. If the guy had the oil changed every 3k it will keep on going for a long time.

    I wouldnt buy an 18yr old a truck that looks that nice regardless of how many miles or price, they will not appreciate it. Im 18 and see everyone with a nice car in highschool, hardly any respect their car, when they do they become cocky about it and no one will appreciate their company. Buy your son an old work truck and make him work on it when it breaks, thats what my parents did for me and could thank them enough it taught me alot..

    So what did u guys do ? buy it ?
    Although it has high miles its not your everyday work truck, it is in great shape.
    For the right price its worth a shot.
    Just know that it'll be harder still for u guys to sell the truck down the road when it has 375k +.

    Check the hours on it. I think after you turn the key off on those models, you can push and hold the milage reset and it should show up on the dash....
