Assuming the truck is in good shape for its age, after a thorough inspection, I would not hesitate buying this vehicle for a max of $4000. If it is good now, it should definitely last five more years, probably ten if it is strictly a tow vehicle and you can store it indoors. I love new trucks, but $40-50k, not gonna happen. I recently "upgraded", went from a 2001 to a 2003.

Try $60K nicely optioned, but not topped out with leather, etc.

I was in shock when I priced a new truck recently.

It should be good for at least another 100,000 miles with good maintenance.

Im with booboo.
OP i have owned about a dozen if those trucks and worked on many many more. Those trucks wether it be the body style of the 88 -98 1/2 ton body style or the 99-02 1/2 ton body style (2000 3/4 tons could go with either body style then). Both are good trucks, and only 120k.....thats awesome!
Make sure belts and hoses and intake gaskets are good, and you should be good!!!

Good luck!!!

If you don't buy it, share his name lol. DH would love it, we bought a 91 Chevy 2500 pickup with 120,000 on it from a good friends dad. He sold it when he got rid of his 5th wheel. It has cost us very little over the years, today it has over 260,000 and it's still the firewood hauling, deer hunting, ice fishing rig on the lake. It's been a great truck, he's talked about upgrading, but it's still running great.
