What problems at what mileage?

I'm looking at getting into a 6.4 sooner or later and I want to know what I should look for being wrong at what mileage like when does something commonly go wrong? What to expect if I were to buy a truck with 80-110k? I know to get a Oasis report also!

I know the basics I have been stalking the org for about a month now ha So as soon as I get it and have the money it'll get a Spartan, Street diesel downpipe and 5in dp back exhaust, S&B intake, Sinister egr delete, No limits elbow and CAC.
any advice would be appreciated

Many opinions. I recommend sticking with 2009 or 10 trucks. Gonnna be hard to find one with that mileage that's not 08. Make sure truck has been proper maintained. Check fuel filter maintenance and primary housing. Make sure it flows clean. Rid of Dpf and egr when u buy. Enjoy her after.

I wouldnt be afraid of 08 trucks though majority of problems are from lack of maintenance, records are key, get an oasis report.

I purchased an '08 in 2010 with 81k miles and opted for the 48k extended warranty. I'm very pleased with my truck and plan to keep in for a while.

At 110k miles the front engine cover had to be replaced due to water pump cavitation. It was covered by warranty, dealer said it would have cost about $2k out of pocket, broke even at this point with warranty. I read that it was somewhat common and that the replacement cover has been redesigned with a tab to prevent it from happening again.

Two weeks ago at 134k miles the EGR valve stuck and a backpressure sensor on the dpf failed. I fixed with a mini maxx and DPF/CAT delete, I was already planning on purchasing these items next month but the truck said it wanted it now and went into limp mode. Truck runs better than ever and I plan to install an EGR Delete and replace EGR valve with an elbow next month.

Had a pulley go out at 85,000 miles. Not that big of a deal.

Deffinetly do the egr an dpf delete. I actually built my egr delete kit myself. Will increase fuel milage an should be a little more responsive, not to mention good for the truck.

The ccv reroute isn't a bad option to do either IMO.
