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 ?

exhaust leaks from up pipes, fluid leaks in the valley of the motor and under the truck etc.

has it been modified in any way?

maintenance records?

look at the pcm if the back of the bracket is cut out there has been a chip mounted to the pcm.
