1 owner.
Clean car fax- no accidents.
New car dealer trade in.
Truck looks fantastic.
Car Lot wants $ 6,800
My brother tested it and said it drives good with 452K miles.


Most people stray away from high mileage.


My thoughts are that the original owner must have loved that truck and drove it all the time averaging 56K miles a year.

Must have been a really good truck.


Thoughts on a high mileage 6.0 PS ?

Never seen a 2004 with the older side mirrors like that.
They mainly come on the 7.3's

Can you access service records? Good chance it has gone through a motor and transmission and rear or two. It might have a fresher drive train then is led to believe based upon the mileage.

Find out if the head gaskets have been replaced and all the egr coolers upgrades out of maybe 150 6.0 fords I only seen maybe 3 that didn't pop the head gasket have egr trouble internal oil cooler problems most of the time it's all three the bill for that is more then the price of that truck

Thanks for the input.

How can I visually verify if it has the egr delete deal on it ?

It will have some kind of a tuner on it of if it's a tuned ECM look at the egr piping it will be gone or have a blocker plate in it

I'll bet it doesn't, those mirrors are not for towing. One owner towing alot would have changed those quick.

04s don't need a tuner for the EGR. My 05 don't. My 06 does.

You can buy a much better truck for the money.
