New Truck

Okay about to buy a 08 with 167,000 miles for 17,500. There are no problems with the truck and is a one owner truck. He just needs to get rid of the truck. So what is the first thing that needs to be done to the truck? What are the problems?

no. if you do an exhaust you have to do a programmer to turn off the regen.
