Just bought 08 6.4 back from the dark side

I had a few 7.3s and I have been screwing around with a duramax for a while but about a month ago i traded in my dmax for an 08 6.4 and I love it. Its got 37k on it lariat and I absolutely love it. picked it up for 32k thought that was a decent price for northern maine. Im very impressed with the power it has stock and can't wait to put a mini maxx in it. My only concern is I have heard people have a lot of problems with the job 1 trucks, which i found out mine was a job 1 after I bought it and did some research. What are the common problems i should be looking for? or is it so bad that I should sell it? Im looking to add a tune and exhaust and run this truck for 4 years.

I have had a job 1 since new. No it is not so bad you need to get did of it. Major repairs for me were new radiator, front left locking hub, rear main seal, egr valve replacement, think that's it for major. Only item I paid for was the radiator b.c out of warranty. I have had the mini, intake and full exhaust for a month or so with no problems. Many others way longer
