Sounds ok in price. Get the VIN and get an oasis Report. These engines should last along time if takin care of. If you want power for towing then get the exhaust and a tow tune. If you want reliable driving with no concern about how much power you have then just get the better exhaust and have fun with the truck it will last along time. My 07 has had no problems at all. My 06 has had a few tranny problems but nothing with the engine and I have the exhaust, Banks six-gun, and K&N air filter and that thing flat out moves. Your fuel mileage with 3.73 should be around 18 on the highway if oyu keep your foot out of the intake. If you tow I would get an EGT gauge, always helps keep you out of trouble. Good luck.
