Just have to delete egr and dpf and they will last forever. I just got mine, just need to do ur normal look around cheaking for leaky fluids and what not. If who ever ur buying it from will let u have a shop look at it I would take it to well known deasel shop and expect to pay some money to have it looked over good, but its worth it cause if u purchase it and something goes bad it could mean big money. Now mine is pretty much bone stoke and have put 6K miles on it since I got it with no issues so fare.

The only reason I say take it to a shop is cause the milleage and the deal ur getting, not trying to scare u away from the truck cause they are really good trucks.

I think 19 might be a little high. I bought mine with 160k for 17,500. See if you can get them to go down on it. If not id still do they are good trucks and you wont regret the trade.

Unless they have the documentation on oil changes at 3000 miles they may be lying to you. There's no reason why these truck should have oil changes that often unless maybe they consider the work it was doing "severe duty". That strikes me as either being BS or possibly rich and wasteful since changing oil every 3k for 160k equals alot of cash.
