Default Buying a Cummins

Howdy, I am looking at a 12v for 5-4 grand. It can be found here:

I am not sure if I should go for this. The mileage does not scare me for the wear on the motor, but the wear on the chassis and other components makes me lose some trust. I will bring a diesel mechanic to give it a once-over and I will look for things like blow-by and any pull in the steering, but are there any fatal problems to look for? Also, will registering in another state make the price unreasonable? I live in California and would like to learn about the process of registering out of state vehicles. Any knowledge and opinion is appreciated.
