If you have an expert Diesel guy look at that truck, make sure he inspects the fuel delivery and filtration system, you might even want to get to it as a first mod and upgrade it to something better than OEM, there are also known issues with that truck and the injectors, usually needing replacement every 60000 miles. This is an area you can also upgrade. Yes as another one pointed out have the ball joints checked by a pro, but also the whole front end, these 04's are know for u-joint problems and tie rod ends, 18.5k to me is a bit high for a 136k miles truck, yes is the 5.9 but depending on trim there might be some room for some negotiations, if you spoke to the previous owner how much did they give him for his truck? But for sure if its in great shape, you should have a smile on your face every time you floor it. JMO, and all the best in your possible purchase.
