    Hella nice truck dude, I would definitely buy it. 6.5 Was a good engine as long as you take care of it like any other. They didnt have a problem with the crank cracking like the 6.2 did because it was not forged. I would talk him down though, Around here i would buy it for like 4000 or 4500. 125K is pretty good mileage for its age, Looks clean all around and they really does get about 16MPG. I recommend this truck.
