I think the biggest concern for you would be the tranny and suspension. As long as the motor had the oil changed on time, you'll probably be alright. If all the injectors are original, then yeah - set some money aside for maybe replacing a few of those. But the injectors are a "fix as needed" kind of thing, so don't fix them until they go.
That's just my opinion, others will tell you their's as well. The 7.3 is an awesome motor. I loved mine when I had it. Never let me down once, except when the CPS went out. Keep a spare CPS (Camshaft Positioning Sensor - about $30) with you when you take long hauls, and be sure to get some gauges to monitor Tranny Temp, Boost, and Pyrometer (EGT = Exhaust Gas Temperature).
