    Search some of the old threads on "buying a used truck" and it'll give you a list of things to go off of. One question I do have is are you in Cali or do you NEED to run Cali? If not go pre-emission. But if you do, then repost this in the garage forum. I think it's some mechanics that are helping out over there.

    I think that the Cummins warranty expires @ 500k miles.

    Miles and price both feel kinda high to me.

    Do your research like rig dig, ECM report, and verify all recalls/service bulletins have been performed

    ask specifically about when the dpf was last cleaned and or replaced ask about dosier valve replacement and cleaning and last but certainly not least ask for proof that both the tech advisory's and both recalls were performed on the unit
