New to diesel question

In interested in buying my uncles 1997 250 4x4. The question is it hasn't been even started in the last 4 years, what would I have to look out for purchasing it. The truck is extremely clean and seems like it was well maintained. I guess what would go bad after four years of inactivity.

Change all the fluids, the batteries and take a drive to let everything warm up. Then keep your eyes open for any leaks or strange noises.
