Is this a good deal?

Hi, I am hoping to get peoples feedback on pricing on a used truck I have found and if there is anything in particular I should check on it.

2011 F-250 6.2l XLT 4x4 Crew Cab with 18k miles. Listed at 32k

I have found the original window sticker through a forum post on this site: http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...7W2B67BEB07112

1 discrepancy I have found is that the window sticker refers to interior being Grey cloth and when I looked at the truck today it has black leather? Should I be concerned?

Its not from a Ford Dealership if that makes any difference.

Thank you for all information/tips.

Those are probably leatherette seat covers put on by the prior owner.

I was looking for 2011's xlt crews for a couple of months. They didn't seem to be around, and when they were the price was higher than 32k.

I can't open up that sticker link. What is the MSRP? If the MSRP is in the 44k+ range then I think that price is pretty good, in my area anyway. I was seeing similar trucks on Ford lots for 38k.

You should get an Oasis report (that details warranty work, from a Ford dealer). And also compare that against the TSB link on this site.

Lastly, get a Carfax report.

I will have to double check the seat covers just to see as I am curious at this point. You are correct the MSRP was 44k.

The only down side is that it has a number of scratch's on the paint work. Being that it wont be used as a work truck I am slightly more sensitive with the paint work as I am looking to keep the truck for a good number of years and don't want to deal with body panel rust.
Thanks.

Leather is not a option on a XLT, so they must be seat covers.
