Pull the Oasis report and service records. If it all looks good I would not be worried what so ever. Maintaince is key with these trucks.

I have 162k on mine. Bought it with 150k, deleted the DPF at 155k, deleting the EGR within the next couple months. Been solid so far, admittedly though it does make me a little nervous. If the Oasis checks out just do the proper maintenance and you should be fine.
