Buying a truck, Is it worth it? as a first car.?

I'm currently looking at a Ford F150, It's a 1999 and has 248,000 kms on it. The truck is $600. However. All four front ball-joints need to be replaced, The rear U joint needs to be replaced, The rear leaf springs and brackets need to be replaced, The sercit belt and rear brakes need work and the alternator is cracked. I know nothing about cars or fixing them. i need some help. How much am I looking at to fix the truck ? (just a rough estimation would be good) Is it even worth it?

    This truck is not worth it. It's a parts only truck.
