Same as any other vehicle. how does it run, everything feel tight, etc...

One thing is get an oasis report, and if you have a programmer that is compatible take it with you and check the difference between oil and coolant temps. 15* or more and it will need an oil cooler. Other than than that, just a general snooping around and should be fine.

thanks for the link, I am looking for an excursion currently and really like the front end of the 6.0s along with the quieter engine. This thread answers lots of questions for me.
