Heres some suggestions:
1. Request a warrenty repair report or any repair report which should include body repair from an accident.
2. Look for an oil leak at the rear main. Some of these trucks have this problem
3. Drain water seperator looking for water
4. See if there's any maintenance records paying attention to fuel filter change intervals
5. Ask why the truck was sold/traded
If you can get the vin number, there is a place on the diesel place (www.thedieselplace.com) that will do a vin search to see what services have been done by a dealership. It should still be under warrenty

Super, super low mile brand new trucks make me go hmmmmmmmm???
I mean there are many reasons to sell something that new, I just want to know which one that's all.
The fact is, people lose a lot of money when they they sell something that new with that low of miles. A LOT of money. I want to know why.
I am learning the importance of going hmmmmmmmmm??? before buying used. I just recently bought a used car for my daughter - turns out the odometer was rolled back over 100,000 miles - falsified CarProof and mechanical records. On the other hand some of the best vehicles I ever owned were also bought slightly used.
You haven't able to roll back an odometer since the mid 90's. I think a 2011 will be okay.
This car I bought must have had the cluster replaced without updating the mileage. Anyway, point is that I have learned not to be as trusting as I used to be when buying a used vehicle.

That's a good way to be. So much stuff being sold and re sold via auctions, now that used is in high demand, it's very hard to know what you are getting even with carfax. I bought a used car recently that the dealer said they sold new and I looked at the car fax they provided and found it had been resold at auction in another city- so the one owner story went out the window. That alone saved me several thou. Plus after the sale I found out previous owner had bought manufacturers extended warranty that was then transferred to me for free. 2 unknowns about the cars history that actually benefit me.
