Question 2000 7.3 What do y'all think?

Have a buddy of mine that is trying to get out of his pos dodge caravan and into a power stroke. He came across this one= 2000 Ford Super Duty F-250 XLT Colorado Springs, Colorado | Springs Automotive Group

Not sure what they are asking yet but we are going to go look at it tonight. I has a lot of miles, but I know the stories of these diesels lasting a LONG time. What are some very important things to look for when we go look at it? I don't personally know that much about the 7.3. Any info from y'all would be awesome!

I am Rattlesnakes buddy and have located a vehicle i might want to purchase, so far when I mention an OASIS Report the sales staff give me that dumbfounded crooked head look. I have the VIN. The truck ran well and is not beat up at all my major concern is the 194814 miles on that 7.3. Also stock turbo and exhaust.
