im new to the forum world but im looking at my first psd. it is a 1996 f-250 ext. cab 5 speed. the thing im worried about is it has 250,000 miles for $7,500 most of its life has been in tx. im located in boone,nc. is the amount of miles something to worry about? how many more miles does it have left? what will i be replacing? it has a f-350 front end. i have looked under the truck and no leaks and the engine compartment is clean. i dont want to buy something im going to be losing money in. just throw whatever input you have my way. thanks

Welcome.

I wouldn't worry alot about the 250K miles. Are you certain it has the D60 under the front?

I would pull the oil cap to check the blow by. If you have a friend with a scan tool have them scan the truck just to see what its doing.

a dana 60 under a f250 is a great thing. its a mod that alot of f250 guys do instead of throwing money at the dana 50 TTB that comes stock.

you would be better off replacing the injectors due to the miles.

you state in your other thread that your selling a f350 cc thats 2wd with a 7.3 but your also looking to buy your first psd?

sorry Im kinda confused.

I think he is asking to much. It is more in the 5k range

:whs: Sounds a tadd high to me too with that mileage. Although if it does have the D60 under it already that is pretty nice.

yeah I have the stock TTB piece of sh*t front end that is a money pit. its funny how many people can be cramed into an ext cab truck but its so uncomfortable to have 2 people in there, yet alone say child seat or anything.

plus a 4x4 cc f350 dually was not a option so only true obs lovers will know.
