I'd walk away. There's plenty of low mileage King Ranch and Lariat dually's out there for the same price. If the turbo is in need of cleaning then there's a possibility it could've overboosted at one time... not exactly a death sentence, but if someone kept driving it with an overboost condition then you're looking at head gaskets.
IIRC the casting sand Ford uses can stain degas bottles to that brownish color
I agree, get a monitor. I went with a buddy of mine to look at an 03' 6.0 Lariat FX4 CCSB. 154k miles for $8200. Truck was cosmetically great with normal interior wear for the year. It ran and drove just fine, and even though the truck supposedly had a new HPOP installed recently, the oil temp just kept rising. By the time we got back to the guy's house, it had a 22* delta. No telling how long he's been driving it like that too.
