Should I buy, your opinion please

Hey guys, I've been looking for a truck. Here is what I'm looking for: 4wd, Long bed (To haul a truck bed camper), extended cab atleast, and ability to haul a trailer with 2-3 bikes at the same time as the camper, less than 10G. I know Im asking for a lot.

I was recently looking at a ram 1500 or dakota, but they are not long beds, and cant do what I want it to prob.

SOOO, I have found a 2004 F250 4x4 "King Cab" with long bed. Here is the CL link: 2004 FORD F-250 4X4 KING CAB

It has 150K miles on it though, and that is what is worrying me. I see that its a good price and everything I need, but hate to pay that much for something with such high mileage.

What is your input? should I keep looking, revise my search criteria, or go look at this one? BTW I am poor college student :(

Thank you for your time.

Your not a poor college student or you'd be looking to buy a 10 year old Kia to get around.

With the 5.4L V8 expect no better than 10mpg loaded with a camper. It never hurts to check around more. If the owner cannot provide previous maintenance records, walk away. If he can, make sure everything is up to date as far as the owners manual goes, oil changes, tune ups, gear oil changes, transmission oil changes, and so on... and just based on that will be a selling point for me even if it cost another $1K more it gives one better piece of mind.

'11 Ram Quad Cab 4x4 SXT 5.7L HEMI (stock); 48,500m
'06 Pontiac G6 GT 3.5L 220hp; 64,000m
'12 Chrysler 200 Limited 3.6L 283hp; 28,000m
'99 Taurus 3.0L 2V Vulcan 145hp; 154,300m - Traded
Amsoil in all vehicles!
