looking at an 06

i currently have an 03 f-250 ex cab long bed 7.3 and a used car dealer down the road just got in a 06 f-350 ex cab 6.0 lariet with 79k on it. I might go look at it tomorrow and am new to 6.0's and wondering what i should be looking for for issues other that i know about the egr and headgaskets. thanks in advance for any help

Ask for an Oasis Report this will give you the history if it was a problem child. Look at the degas tank if there is any white stuff around cap if there is HGs problems, if there is white smoke at start up EGR cooler problems. If you could get a scan tool to plug in while on test drive to check EOT-ECT max difference is 15* if more Coolers are plugged. With 79k it still should have warranty see if you can get more.
