looking at buying a 03 6.0 any advise?

i am looking at a 2003 f250 4x4 with the 6.0 in it. the truck has 176000 miles on it and was a very well maintained fleet vehicle. is there anything to worry about with buying a 6.0 with that many miles on it? i am new to ford have owned chevy 6.5s and cummins trucks. let me know what to look for or to look out for.
any help would be great, as i am looking at making the deal on it tomorrow.

03s are problemish, speaking generally. Check the build date, may of 03 strides were made in reliability.

You really cannot narrow that down. Get the oasis report and see what has been fixed. Check the truck for oil and coolant leaks, any other problem would have shown themselfs by now oh yea and make sure you get a good deal

should i be worried about anything or is it a good deal just go for it? the truck has no rust, no damage very clean. it looks like it has 100k miles not 175k. like i said i am new to ford diesels and dont want to make a mistake in my purchase.
