Same things you would look at with any used truck. Nothing really stands out as a 'common' problem with them. What year truck are you looking at?

next it will be injection pump 3- 5 g, injectors $4000 and turbo $4000. that buys a lot of gas

13-15 mpg unless the temps are in the teens or lower. I suspect the extra time it takes to get everything up to temp is the reason for that.
