Put Deposit on an 05, What should I look for in an inspection

Hi gang,

Just put a deposit down on a 05 SuperCrew Lariat FX4 w/ 60k miles yesterday. I'm driving up next weekend to do a once over on it,and have the local ford dealer take a look at it and was wondering what I should be looking out for during my inspection. Anything prone to breaking early that I should check?

The Carfax came back clean with 1 owner, and the truck was involved in a crash with "Moderate" damage. The seller says the bumper was replaced and some paint work done on the rear fender. You guys analyzed the Oasis report for me in an earlier thread(Potential 6.0 owner). Any help would be appreciated.

I'm going to try and link to that Oasis report:here
