Quick opinion - may go look at a truck today

Hey, so I found this truck on Craigslist. Seems like a decent deal. He says there isn't anything wrong with it. I am trying to get the vin from him to run a carfax and oasis is I can find a dealer to do it. What do you guys think? I have been looking for a crew cab but this seems like a pretty good deal of the mechanicals check out.

If you are going to buy one, first order a scanguage2, you can have Autozone get it over night. Or any kind of obd2 gauge unit.
These are very valuable for future use.
Make a list of things to looks at under the hood
Egr intact?
Are there head studs?
Degas bottle any white crust does it have fluid what color?
Correct Motorcraft oil cap?
Condition of oil ?
And such there should be a sticky on here of what to look for.
Looks like a good price? To good???
Check it out real good!
Good luck hope it's a great deal.

I wer and looked at the truck. I could not get a cts, none of my friends drive diesels. The truck body and interior was in rough shape and had a plow mount. Use to be a full time work truck. It did drive decent tho. I found a second truck I am going to look at tomorrow that is a crew cab.
