I have an 05 SLT off road, thunder road edition that I purchased a year ago with 140k on the clock and have had zero issues with it and I could not get the previous records for it and it has a trailer brake controller installed. These are good trucks.

I have an '05 Laramie Quad Cab. It has 93k on it and I've owned it for 10k of those. I have changed the front hub on it that has been mentioned. It cost me $175 but I did the work myself. It's an easy fix. Don't let that be the determining factor. I love the truck and I don't see any reason it won't live another 100k easily. I paid 17K for mine. I think $9500 is a little high priced for a 200K truck though still. I also use mine for farm use in NE and this truck is built for it. Also, being mine is Laramie, it has the leather, I would look into that part of it. You may not have a Laramie somehow, which would easily drop it a grand...
Mods: Deleted Resonator, painted talgate logo, DiabloSport tune, K&N drop in. Plenty more on the way, finances permitting...

ive got 2004 slt all power options including heated mirrors power seats laramies come standard with leather and fake wood trim but you can get cloth seats and no wood trim ive seen them in the 2003-2005 laramies just bought my truck 2 months ago 10,990 at dealership 113,323km truck 4x4 in great shape 100% stock at the moment i was originally looking for laramie with leather but under 150,000 km most were 15,000for 2004-2005 and i seen 3 laramies with no leather.all depends on what they sell for in your imediate area 97-2003 fords in great shape are dirt cheap here 140,000km $ 3,000 its all about desires and demand blue book doesnt tell whole story
