Not quite sure what you are looking for, exactly. Are there any mods done to the truck? DPF/EGR delete, etc. If you live in an area that does emmisions testing make sure the truck will actually pass it. In regards to registration, just look up your state's rules for registering an out of state vehicle. If you are 100% sure you are going to purchase it, just get a friend to ride down there with you and pick it up.

Do your homework, get an Oasis and carfax, get plenty of pics and prepare yourself to be ready to leave empty handed.

If you purchase, make sure you leave with a bill of sale, signed title, and temp tags.

Other than that, read your DMV laws regarding titling.

oasis report and car fax man, it kinda sucks buying a truck out of state cause if you get there and you aren't happy you just went all that way for nothing.
