Ask yourself this question first... are you willing to buy someone else problem?
You know of 2 problems, one that can be very elusive.
One way to test for poor compression, or really test for bad piston rings, is to run the motor and pull the oil fill cap, you will see a little smoke pouring out, if you see a good amount, heavy and steady, stay away from that truck.
In my personal opinion, I would not buy this truck. With body damage, a failed turbo, misfiring, etc. it is not worth it to ME.
Good luck on whatever you decide.
