Looking at '08 Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD

Hi, new member here. I'm going to be looking at an '08 Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD for sale with 120,000mi on it. Looks super clean and the guy wants $8500. He appears to be a private party guy that buys vehicles at auctions and sells them online. He said it has no leaks, no check engine lights and drives like a dream. Everything works on it. I asked him about the maintenance history and of course he said he doesn't know because he bought it at an auction. I'm a long time Dodge diesel truck owner plus I'm a marine engineer (diesel mechanic) on a tug boat for a living so I know diesels pretty well, just not the 3.0 CRD. I've been doing a lot of research online and it seems as though problem areas are the swirl door, CCV system, intake seals, and possibly the oil cooler. Anything else I need to be concerned with regarding this engine? As I understand it, 120,000mi isn't much for these engines if maintained properly. Does this seem like a decent deal if everything checks out ok? If I buy, I plan on addressing the swirl door by bypassing with the emulator plug and re-routing the ccv to under the vehicle just like my '02 Dodge Cummins truck is. Thanks for any and all input!
