Thinking of buying a 2006 6.0

I have found a nice 2006 F350 DRW 2 wheel drive and am thinking of picking it up. It only has 72k miles is there anything I should look for before buying? The problems with the EGR, oil cooler and head gaskets really has me debating buying this or finding a 24v 5.9 Cummins! I have only ever owned a ford so getting a dodge is really a struggle! Any info would be great!

2005 F350 Crew Cab Lariat 4x4 Dually.. My new Fat Bottom!!! SCT SF3, blue spring upgrade and Straight Piped! Studded and deleted, custom tuning hopefully coming! 22.5 American Force Independance wheels!

There are solutions to all the issues that the 6.0 has. Once taken care of they are as reliable as any truck out there. I love the 6.0.
