Default 2001 Dodge Cummins

So here is the wrap. I have the opportunity to trade my 2002 dodge ram half ton, for a 2001 24v cummins.

Here's the catch. The cummins will not stay running. According to the owner, some kid, when he parked it 5 months ago, the truck ran beautiful. It has 135k miles. He has slowly been working on it over the past 5 months, but now it will not stay running. He says it gets fuel, and will start but won't stay idleing and stalls out. Claims the fuel filters are new. Instantly I thought electrical. Am I right to assume that?

I am hoping this can be a quick fix, and I could finally get myself an older cummins like I've always wanted. Issue is, the truck is all the way across state, and before I travel that distance, I wanna know whether I got myself an easy fix or a potential nightmare. What is your opinion on the matter? What sort of things should I be wary of? Could it be the ECM? Or any specific censors that could be causing this problem?
