Buying 2004 F-150?

I'm looking at a 2004 F-150 Supercab Xl, just to add as a work truck. It's an automatic V8 with 92,000 miles on it with the 4.6L engine. I was wondering if there's anything I should look out for if I go to see/drive it and if it's a good deal. The asking price is $6000. It's from a dealer and looks pretty clean also.

check the rear u joint. If the rear u joint goes bad you have to replace the whole driveshaft, they dont make u joints for them. I mean thats for the 5.4 I dont know if the 4.6 is the same.

One of our crews has a 4.6 liter and it seems to do way better than the 5.4's for some reason. It has something to do with the timing chains.
