surging on an 03 is probably the ICP sensor, EGR valve, or (with only 36K miles) a rusted turbo or combination of both. These are easily remedied problems. 11/02 is a very early production date 6.0 and, unless they've all been changed, problematic injectors. I'd get someone to get you an Oasis on the truck to see what warranty work Ford has done on it. That being said, they also ran like a bat out of hell (at least mine did). With only that many miles.....I wouldn't be scared if the price was a bit better. It is an 8 year old truck.
FWIW--NEVER EVER EVER EVER listen to anything a used car salesman says about a problem that a vehicle has. He'll tell you the truck will blow sunshine up your azz by itself just to get you to buy it and DON"T let them add anything to the price for their repairs. Also, it might still be eligible for warranty or make them throw it in, especially for what they're asking.
