You gotta remember, this forum is huge.. An there is tons of creepers that don't post..
I would. If you have access to, or get the dealer to hook up their computer, take it for a test drive and after the truck is warm, put it on the highway at 55-60, and check the oil temperature. And coolant temps, if more than 15 degrees apart you've got a failing oil cooler... At that point walk away, or get the dealer to drop 5k off the price, for the cost of you having to do that.
Look at your coolant overflow bottle, also known as the degas bottle, look around the cap. If it looks like its been saturated at all, or almost steam cleaned, than your EGr cooler could be failing/failed.. And the same applies as above...
