If you do not need the truck to pull something then I would say it is a poor choice.

That's not too bad a deal but if you start looking you will see some real nice diesel truck's selling even cheaper than that. If you do plan on buying one I recommend not buying anything newer than the 01.

We get 18 mpg with our F-250 4x4 quad cab short box diesel - that's when he drives it. More when I drive since I'm not always in a big hurry to go nowhere.
I get 18 mpg with my 4.0L TJ.
