Buying an 03 Edge/need advice

Hi
I'm new here & new to Rangers.
Looking at an 03 V6 4.0 5 speed manual,for daily driving/light hauling.

It's got about 65k adult driven miles & been reasonably well maintained.

What should I be looking at/aware of?

Are they prone to head gasket failure? Oil leaks?

How many miles will engine go before needing major work?

Any front end/rear end issues I should know about?

Thanks in advance.
