Couple of things to watch, look for excessive oil in front of the motor, if there is, the dowel pin has most likely gone out. Also unbolt the turbo inlet hose and look for scoring, etc. Wobble the shaft on the turbo back and forth a bit. There should be very little play.

Lastly, make sure the tranny shifts through all gears, especially overdrive. And try to hit a couple potholes at speed during the test drive, the 4x4 versions of these trucks are known for front end issues.
It does have an oil leak. He said about a quart every 2 weeks. He dd's it everyday.
