The Diesel Garage Forums - Powered by vBulletin you can have them run there. thing about having the dealer if they're the one selling the truck, they can leave information out of the report if they want, it's all in how much you trust them

Get and OASIS done, if you become a board supporter, then you can get them done for free. Most of the motor issues were worked out of the 05 and up 6.0L, so you should be ok. They have a Caliper problem with them, but nothing else to serious. An Oasis will tell you what warranty work has been done on the truck. In terms of tuning or something like that you won't be able to tell( unless the warranty was voided). You could see if its had a head gasket blown.. although it might not be a direct affect of tuning.... Really if its still got the stock headgaskets and headstuds they could not have been beating on it to hard... plus your stil covered by the 100K/5YR warranty.... so who cares.

How many Miles are on it?
Is it lifted? if so have the suspension checked and be ready to replace parts early
What are they asking for it?
Individual or Dealer selling the truck?
Make sure you get an Oasis report and make sure the truck still has its warranty,

Check to make sure this recall has been performed. No big deal if not, just make sure you get it done if needed soon after purchase.

FDDTS - 5R110 Low/Reverse Clutch Snap Ring Failure - Recall 05B27

Cost me a new tranny and almost 4k for a problem that was an easy fix. I hadn't heard of the issue until it was too late for me.
