Questioning Purchasing 6.4L

HI all,

I am looking at purchasing a 2008 6.4L from my father-in-law. I am hesitant after looking into issues with the EGR System, HPFS failures, Rocker Arms, ect.

The truck currently has 185k on it. Only reason I'm entertaining buying a truck with this mileage is because he is the origional owner, truck has been exclusively highway driven (just had to do breaks for the first time at 160k), and he has been religious about having it serviced every 3k miles at a certified ford dealer.

Truck is bone stock, had minimal towing, and has been babied.

I'm planning to take it to be looked at, but am curious as to the potential issues I'll be looking at with a higher mileage 6.4L.

Thank you all in advance,

there is nothing easy to work on on a 6.4.
