what do you guys think?

I have been thinking about upgrading to an f150 in the future and have been browsing craigslist for a while and came across this. I know it has somewhat high miles and the rear bumper looks kinda messed up. I dont know if it was in a fender bender or what. What do you guys think?

That price is really low, I would check the car fax.

I personally wouldn't buy a 04 with that high of miles but thats just me. Good bit of issues with the 04-05, especially with high miles. Spark plugs and fuel injectors are the big ones.

Yea the price just doesn't seem right, almost too good to be true.

I wouldn't start out with something with so many miles personally.

I don't think the price is that low honestly. I mean its not a crewcab, its got high mileage, the tailgate and bumper have lots of damage, and the interior looks pretty rough. I wouldn't consider buying this truck for a daily driver, maybe if I just needed a farm truck or something.

My dad recently bought an '04 F150 FX4 Supercrew with 118k miles and NO body damage for $9000. So I dont think 9k for a beat up extended cab is a real great price.

I would pass. There are so many 150's out there you will eventually find what you are looking for

If you want one, get out and look at lot of them. You'll get a good idea on prices and what you really want.
