Arrow 69k mile 09 Ram Sport, questions, what to look for?

Swung by a local dodge dealer to check out a 69k mile 2009 4x4 Ram Sport crew cab with my "long in the tooth" 2000 Suburban and got a good trade in offer. bottom line is anything is an upgrade over my 14 year old trusty rust bus.

My main concerns are with the mileage and related services that would be due. Is there a maintenance schedule for the 09 Hemi 4x4's available? I saw there are issues with the exhaust manifold bolts, any other issues I want to check out while doing my walk arounds specific to the 09 Rams?

thanks

Look at the sticker on the rear axle, or order a build sheet. in the last of the numbers on the sticker should read like this:

XX355XX for 3.55 and XX392XX for 3.92. 3.92 is only avail with LSD. 3.55 is with or without.

Here's the website I went to to request a build sheet for my truck. They sent it to me via email the next day.
