Buying 04 F350 this weekend, OASIS, advice, and information?

I am buying a 2004 F350 King Ranch this weekend. Dually, crew cab, spray in bedliner, matching color topper, 4x4, etc...

The VIN# is 1FTWW33P94EC23181

Can somebody run me an OASIS?

It has 220k on it, but I'm only paying $10,500 for it. It has it's share of dings/dents/scratches on it, and some surface rust and such, but nothing of concern to me (it's going to be a parts / Jeep hauler).

I'm aware of some of the problems these trucks had (I used to work for Ford in Dealer Customer Service), but I'm presuming with this many miles on it, "anything that would have gone wrong would have gone wrong" by now. And I'm no expert on diesel engines and automatic transmissions.

I also previously worked for the company that made the wiring harnesses for International, and I have quite a selection of new engine harnesses in case something goes wrong there.

I know it had new injectors at 110k, and the front end just had $1100 in work (bearings, brakes, not sure what else)... Axle work is no problem, either.

Mostly I'm curious as to what issues I should look for and what issues I should see if have been fixed. You know - the really expensive sh!t that could cause me a MAJOR headache right away.

Help / advice / assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
