Looking to buy an '02 ... What the heck am I looking for ?

Well guys, I was in the market for an OBS, but decided to get something a little newer.

I found a low mileage '02 F-250, Crew Cab, Long Bed, 4x4, Lariot.

Seems to be super clean, 125k on the odometer.

They are asking $16 for it.

What specific items should I be looking for besides tailpipe startup checks, oil cap flip, etc ?

Hmmm, ok ....

Besides looking for evidence of previous mods, ie drilled exhaust for previous EGT monitioring ....

Is there anything visually I should concentrate on ?
