With that kind of mileage, even if it's a 100% clean perfect truck I wouldn't put much money into it. And no way on any kind performance parts. Even if you rebuild the engine, trans, axles, brakes, and suspension- even the wiring has a ton of miles on it.
Another thing to consider...if it went this far as is, then why change the recipe now?
Probably everything will be fine with giving it a little love, but I've seen this play out before where someone gets a high mileage old diesel in good shape. They put a couple go-fast/mpg goodies on it and then the repairs start piling up. Next thing you know they've got 15,000 into a 6000 dollar truck.
Good luck either way, I don't want to jinx you, just warn you about possibilities.
And inspect your flexplate on that miss
