    I'd take it, that's a really good deal, and those diesel trucks last forever.

    if its an auto and it was used for towing stuff check over the trans first . auto transmissions in those trucks burn up pretty quick when there used for towing. my buddy has a dually with 70k and he's on his 3rd trans.

    You sure it isn't a 6.0? The 6.0 had a couple of issues, nothing too serious though. I had a 2003 from work, and it was the 6.0 Diesel.

    Looks ok from here.

    6.0 was in a handful of late 03's, but all of the 04's. and looking at it, looks like the 7.3L. I'd say go for it, not a bad price at all. Good luck.
