Going look at a powerstroke

Found a 06 F250 with 35,000 miles on it gonna go look at it Monday, dealer says it has a programmer, stock exhaust, stock intake, it's lifted with wheels and tires, and older man traded it for a new F250, I had a cummins for 3 years, now I'm in a F150 but want another diesel, what should I look for when I go look at it? I know a little about the 6.0 but the fact that it has a programmer scares me

Check out the sticky threads in this forum, specifically:

Write Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD.

It will give you an idea of what will eventually need to be addressed on these motors.
