08 6.4 headgaskets next?

Im looking at an 08 6.4 job 1. Truck has 80000 miles and only a couple little things on oasis ,one being egr cooler. Question is lower Egr cooler was replaced 6000 miles ago,should I expect any issues with headgaskets because of this? Complaint was truck running hot/overheating. Previous owner was anal about maintainace,so Im sure he got it fixed right away.Im familiar with GM diesel and am thinking about making the switch to the 6.4. I just dont want to buy into a bunch of problems. BTW this truck has NEVER had radiator put in it. Ive looked at the truck twice and it is dry .
Thanks !!

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I know there no set in stone way to tell,I just didnt know if one typically follows the other. Just was looking for some insight.

Yeah the Rad. deal has me baffled too!
Now I need to decide to bite the bullet or not
