There will be some investment regardless of mileage unless the previous owner has done the upkeep. Things to watch for are documented well on this forum (Tie rods, ball joints, shocks, etc. AKA the usual). I have an '02 7.3L that I bought w/ 132k mi on it. I did not have to do anything to the engine but you can see the investment in mods in my signature.
A good tune makes a huge difference. I have gotten as good as 20+ mpg on the highway keeping the speed down below 70 , flat terrain and conservative drivng w/ a tune. Around town is a different story. Getting 4 tons fo steel moving takes some juice!!!
