from my own experience, I'd look for leaks around the heads or turbo. start it up drive it for awhile and see if its throwing out anywhite smoke. And if possible, try to get there early on a cool morning to see how she sounds when at a cold idle. (sound like its running on all cylinders or missing?) furthermore I'd try to get the front end up on a jack to make sure those expensive hubs are in good shape along with ball joints.
these are great trucks, just found in my experience (along with any truck out there) that there are some weak links you want to make sure have been maintained properly. and if there is a full set of service records, then that makes it easy.
