If the previous owner did not fix those problems it pretty much tells you that he was not meticulous with maintenance and the truck probably had seen heavy use/abuses.
I bet you the dealer only tells you those problems because those are problems you could easily detect on first test drive. There might be other problems they did not tell you or not even aware about. You should take a mechanic or someone who is well verse with this truck to come with you for the test drive.
I second all of that... I just gave 4.5k for an f350 SRW 4x2 last week, that had some MINOR issues (lock actuators, door lighty switches, etc), but the previous owner went out of his way to pinpoint every little issue. I looked at several 4wd trucks, and really wanted one, but found the prices incredibly inflated. You CAN find trucks for good prices, but you just have to pay attention to what you're looking at. Individual owners tend to be a source for better/cheaper trucks. I haven't bought anything from a dealer from years. Good luck with your search!
