    would anyone on here buy a 2002 f250 v8 gas 4x4 truck with 300,000 miles on it? the truck looks clean and has a brand new bed on it that the seller swapped from his new truck so he could keep his 2002 utility bed for use on his new truck. I have never came across a gas truck with 300,000 miles, he is asking $4500

    there is a guy on FTE with 6 5.4 powered E450 buses, all have over 1 million mile on them and still run strong.. they get an average 600 miles per day doing airport shuttle service.
    we have 2 F-350's at the body shop with over 350,000 miles on them that get used every day for parts delivery/pickup.
    if it is clean and has maintance records i would not hesitate one second to buy it.

    Truck doesn't have a plow, hitch or even a bed liner because bed is new 2013 or 2014, Like I said never saw a gasser over 240,000 or so, looks nice though, no rust underneath

    Answer: NO

    It's a $300-$500 junk truck for parts at best.

    I would not touch a truck with 300K on it ! It would have to be $500 for me to buy it. There is just way too many things/parts on that truck that would need replaced or repaired. Most parts on that truck are not original. You can drop $600 on the front end easy, between: steering, braking and axle U joints or CVJ shafts. Then there are engagement parts and motors for the 4x4 system. What are the brakes like? What are the brake line condition? I bought a truck like that once, will not do it again! It was one thing after another for a year!
