Possible 1997 F250 purchase, need advice

Hi all,
I think that I have found the truck that i want. I live in Pennsylvania, and this truck is located in Georgia. I have found a few near me, but they all have rust issues and this one in Georgia looks great. The owner sent me a whole bunch of pics and a video from the truck and it looks very clean. If you were to purchase a 1997, what kinds of issues do you think I should look out for. The owner told me that he is the only owner, has all the paperwork and service details for the truck, and it has only been used to tow his 5th wheel a few times a year. Other than that, he just liked to have a diesel truck and pretty much babied it. I was set on getting a 99-03 7.3, but I do like this truck. It currently has 87,000 miles on the odometer, but I don't want to get stuck with a bunch of repairs when i get this thing home. What should i look out for or ask him. Thanks guys, Mike
