Questions about 6.0L Cracked Head

I have been looking at a 07 F250 King Ranch with a 6.0L for about 2 weeks. I haven’t seen it in person yet as it is a 4 hour drive away. Anyways 3 days ago the dealership called and said it had sold. They called back today and said that the truck was back. The guy that bought it found cracked heads and needed a truck that day for a trip so he exchanged it for a different truck. The dealer said the truck was in the shop right now getting fixed and it would be ready by Friday when I was planning on going down for the test drive. They did raise the price almost $2000. It has 145,000 and they are now asking 19k and some change for it. What do you all think about this? Is it worth it? Any questions that I should ask about the fix? Will it be good as new after this? The fact that they let him trade it back made me think they are a decent car lot but you never know. This is not a Ford Dealership it is a good sized (200plus vehicles) used car lot. This is my first Diesel and I don’t know a lot about them.

Call them and tell them to put ARP headstuds in instead of factory bolts and then its worth it. Or and check the ECT/EOT delta

how did they fix the cracked heads? if they just got them off a used engine, then whos to say those arent cracked too. these heads tend to warp to. just got done doin a stud job on an 04 6.0 and the heads were warped 4 thousandths. any used head needs to be inspected by a reputable machine shop, if they resealed these id be cautious. if you dont know how to work on these and you come into head problems your gonna be 4 grand into repairs before you know it. the 6.0 is a great motor when properly taken care of
