Question Looking at a 04 f-250 6.0--1st diesel?

Hello, Ive been reading though the forums here for weeks,because Im wanting to purchase a Ford f-250. I have found one that only has 64k on it but has serval mods like what I was wanting to do. Not knowing much about them not real sure what to look for.
The 2004 F-250 crewcab 4x4 in question has been taken excellent care just by the appearence inside and out. I looked all over the motor and uncarriage could not find a oil leak one. The engines mods are a Air Raid cold air intake,Edge Juice platinum and I believe Silverline exhaust(?). It has a 6" lift kit with 37" tires. I have drove the truck and for a lifted truck rides and drives nice. It has plenty of power with stock setting but had to try programmer out and holy sh@*! Thats sold me almost but I was wondering the reliablity issues for this model because I do tow a 8500# campler and is a daily driver? Really hate driving 2500HD 6.0 gasser after that. Would you guys recommend buying one done up like this. Did get a Oasis report and showed a ERG cooler replaced July 07 and few recalls prior. Any help or advice is appreciated. It still in warr also till 09 should I buy the 7yr/200k before its up if I buy truck. Build date 11/03 on truck/motor 2004 according to sticker on vavle cover.

The only thing I'd be leery about is the Edge programmer. They are not known to be the kindest to transmissions. I'd make sure you drive it in town and on the road some more to make sure it doesn't have any slipping. The EGR cooler replacement isn't a big deal. It's a fairly typical failure on the 6.0s. It sounds like a pretty solid truck.

If you end up buying it, I'd seriously think about selling the Edge and getting an SCT with custom tunes, though.
