Worth the money?

I found a 2004 F350 Super Duty, in mint condition exterior and interior, freshly lifted 6 inches professionally, toyo 37" tires, 20 inch rim, bully dog programmer just installed at purchase. Here is a link to a picture since it is quite big.

He builds this for people and has many more to choose from, anyways.

The truck has 24X,XXXkm and with the cost of me bringing it from manitoba and paying taxes etc.. the total cost comes to 29,000ish.

Is this truck worth it? The guy seems like he takes care of what he does and has plenty of paper work for the truck.

Truck looks nice but $29k seems high especially with 240k on the clock. With our $ near par, look for comparables on eBay to get an idea of average price. An 04 with half that mileage is averaging around $20K. Just my 0.02

2001 F350 CC SWB 6spd....currently getting a complete 'makeover'. Stay tuned.

Truck looks well taken care of BUT it in 04 there were some issues with the 6.0 and to be honest 29k is too much for those km IMO. I would pass

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

Buy a hybrid my truck needs your gas

really I'm buying the truck for 26000, I've looked on ebay a lot and it's 2-3 grand more then it's worth km wise, but every modification is brand new as of 2 weeks ago. I'm just getting a couple chrome accessories etc. and there 2600 in taxes. I was thinking of is going over the engine, get an oil sample tested, egr delete kit, inter cooler, arp studs and felpro gaskets since its high mileage. Truck won't be off roading just for highway driving mainly. A few people I know with 6.0L has had problems with egr, head gaskets early (50,000-100,000) I thought the high km wouldn't be a problem and that the owner takes care of his shit.

but thanks I'm not an expert or have had any experience with them.

Have to say, I'm with the other guys that say $29k is too much for that truck. I bought my '05 Dually 6.0 in the States (Ebay) in '08 with 50k miles on it for $23k. It was mint at the time where as, if I could even find a dually in good shape around here, I was looking at $40k for a "logger" special. I'd shop around, especially with all the repo's going on.

Why not find an 04 with a toasted 6.0 cheap and put the cummins in it. Now you have the best truck on the road.
