2. Check the engine properly. Start the engine and after driving for a while apply brakes. Restart the engine. If it shows some trouble on restating them talk to the owner and get it checked by the mechanic.
3. Test for the panic brakes. Create a simulation for a panicky situation and confirm whether the brakes work appropriately when applied in such a situation.
4. See for any dent on the roof. If you see that the roof of the truck is elevated from some point or the other then do check the model properly. There might be rust on the inner side of the roof from that point.
5. You also need to drive on a rough road to check if the shocks control after bouncing. The shocks are probably worn out if it bounces thrice or more.
6. You need to check the brake pedal, armrests, upholstery and pits on the windshield. You need to see in case these are worn out.
7. You also need to check the switches and all the accessories like light, air etcetera. Also look on the inner side of the each tyre to check for any indication of leakage.
8. Any sort of knocks while you start the engine gives indication that the crankshaft or connecting rod bearing is not up to the mark.
