Been occasionally looking at pickups for a while. Not sure if my old burb is worth fixing. Stumbled across a 2004.5 for $5500. Looks decent in pictures. Its unmolested but has 316k on the clock. Going to look at it tommorrow. anything specific i should look for? already paranoid about head gaskets so i know to check that

In your part of the country, Rust/Cancer would be first on the list. when you see it start it up and grab the upper rad hose to see if it gets hard.
look for any excess smoke out of the exhaust pipe.
Look for any tuning switches, inspect engine and harness well.
If it is a private seller, ask the current owner a ton of questions.
If it is on a sales lot then pull a carfax report
