Question May be first Powerstroke and I have ???

I am new here guys and have a question.I recently found what I feel is a bargain. 1 owner 2000 F250 Crew Cab 4x4 with a very pampered 7.3 Power Stroke Diesel an Automatic transmission in it with 3.73 gears in it. As far as the diesel and drive train it is BONE STOCK with 134,000 miles.No 5th wheel plate or ball in it ever. However it has a 6 inch Procomp lift with 37x12.5/20 tires. Now it runs great but it gets 14MPG when it was getting 19-20 with 35 inch tires. What can I do to help the fuel mileage and power without hurting the motor , should I change ring and pinion ? And is $10,000 a fair price for it.

If it's in good shape, I think that's a fair price. It'd go for more down here.

A truck like that in good shape would sell for around 12,000 around my area. I just bought a 2001 lariat crew short box 4x4 in real nice shape with 180,000 on it for 9,000 whole sale, so I think 10,000 for that is a pretty good price, Although I have been wrong before
