Drivetrain condition is everything , irrespective of mileage, so check running carefully, quiet & powerful with no uneven idle, smoke, gearbox or axle wining etc. & look to see how old the air & fuel filters are, rust spots occur on fuel filters over about 20k miles. Old filters kill injectors so walk away if you see rust in one.

for egr/dpf deletes, power tuning, updates,cloning,speed limiter removal,cruise control, euro 3/4/5/6 limiters & key's !
