The has the exact same problems all new diesels have... the government choke hold. Get rid of all things EPA related i.e. DPF/DOC and the EGR and you should have a reliable truck. You of course will need a tuner for this and I suggest H&S mini maxx.
Make sure you check the OASIS report and try to find out who previous owner was to get the maintenance schedule. I have a 2010 with 45K now. Bought it about a year ago with 19K miles on it (paid 38K), and i don't know if the fuel filters were ever changed prior to me owning. Scary to think people don't know better owning a diesel...
If your truck has not been properly maintained, there could be LOTS of things wrong with it.
After you buy it, delete it, and enjoy the best and possibly the last truck you will ever buy. Hands down.
