My 7.3.... soon to be mine!!!

whats up everyone!! Newbie to this place! Been looking everywhere for a truck. Would like to get one out of state because of this dam michigan salt!!!! I chomping at the bit for my taxes to come back so I can go get my new truck! I have been told to steer clear of the 6.0. When I go to look at a 7.3, what should be some things to check. Other then normal stuff?

Happy to be a newbie here. Any feedback would be kick arse. thanks
