What to look for when buying?

I'm looking to buy another truck. If I"m looking at one of these trucks what should I pay attention to? Other than the standard body, frame, suspension issues.

If there is a thread on this just link me to it.


Thanks.

Bill may not be the most popular guy, but there is no better video out there on how to buy a 6.0. You do need to decide if the sales pitch is for you, probably not. Had I watched before I bought, it would have saved me a lot. Little things like crawling underneath to check for oil leaks to knowing the common engine problems. Since watching these videos, Iíve noticed things on other 6.0s Iíve looked at, like a FX4 bed on a two wheel drive truck, and how to check the engine. Itís not that all this info is not available elsewhere, its that it is all over the web not in one place.
