Talking looking at getting a 2008 truck

From what i can tell its a 2008 ccsb xlt, 75000 miles on it 4 inch lift and 35s. its 26000 and has been a one owner in arizona, and has nothing but service stuff on its history. Is there anything that I need to look out for on this truck, I will trade my 2005 in on it. Thanks for any help. I hope i get it...... tired of spending money on the 6.

Just make sure you have maintaince records with it. I was in the same boat. Been searching for about 2 months finally settled on a Job 3 truck. Less issues as far as i have read with radiators, and iintercoolers.

if it has 75,000 with just service then you should be trouble free with no more risk than buying any used vehicle.......fuel filter every 10,000 n joy

so i ended up getting the truck. Picked it up thursday, took it on a 800 mile trip, soo much better of a truck than the old 6.0. The crappy part is monday night someone broke into it and took the stereo....... it was in my driveway. The damage done is over $3000
