HI guys, I’m new to the forum and I need a truck! I am a new home owner with a couple acres and lots of projects so this will be for medium duty stuff like towing our 6x10 dump trailer full of gravel, towing our tractor back and forth to the in laws and many other material runs. No long haul camping or anything but I do need it to be reliable to haul the above mentioned stuff up and down California. I am a pretty competent mechanic and plan to do SOME work on it but I’m not looking for a project truck and have never owned a diesel truck. [I have a VW TDI for commuting and love it]. I have found a well cared for 1994 IDI F350 crew cab with a Banks Sidewinder with 280k miles. It does not have any blow by and seems in good shape, owner will take $7k for it. 280k miles seems like a LOT to me so my question is: Will this be a reliable and low maintenance truck or am I kidding myself and this will need a repair every few months? I will probably put less than 4k miles per year on it. You all know way more about this truck than I do so I appreciate the input!
