2015 6.7L w/ 181k miles DEF/DPF/EGR Help

Found a 2015 3500 Mega cab with 181k miles on it. I'm pretty mechanically inclined and can rebuilt it if need be. BUT...I'm new to the whole DEF/DPF/EGR systems and am curious to know if there's anything that i need to know before I buy it.

Run it and if it gives you problems, drop it. Got a '13 with 80k on the clock stock and the only issues have been the water pump, the splitting coolant Y, and emissions popping codes every 10k. The dealer has been great, so I've kept it intact.

That truck was clearly someone that drove a ton of miles. I wouldn't be afraid of it, if/when those emissions systems start to give you grief I would just let them fall off and delete the truck. Odds are it has had some issues already and the parts have been replaced.

The 2014 that I just picked up has that issue currently.

Plan on replacing that portion of the upper radiator hose when I do the coolant flush and EGR removal in the spring.
