2008 possible purchase

New here done some research but mainly find guys wanting to know of reliability with adding more power to these engines. I'm more interested in knowing what problems to look for in a truck. I've found an 08 with 95000 miles, has new wheels and tires and has been deleted. Truck is extended cab short box and has aftermarket exhaust intake and mini max tuner. What problems are typical and how reliable are these rigs if you don't push for extra power?

Well is it job 1 2 3? But with those miles id say the problems the job ones had are already fixed. I have a 08 with 240k on it and up tell now all I have done was belt tensioner. I have to do studs now but if you don't run it hard you wont have that problem.

how do I find out what Job my truck is? The build plate says 01/08.. I assume that is job1 since its in the beginning of 08. My truck has 69k miles and I haven't had any serious problems. What should I be looking for? Ive owned it for only a year (about 10k miles).
