UPDATE-Advice on used truck purchase

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I would like to get some advice from you guys on purchasing a used truck.. it's at a high end used car dealership, they have very good reviews, and dont sound shady and are very accommodating over phone..
Car fax is clean, 1 owner. They said they took it to a ram dealer and had them go through it, all came back good and they said they will show me the work order from the dealer. All scheduled maintenance up to date.
2014 mega cab 4x4 Laramie all black..182k miles
Fully loaded, with the black out package..
In pics it looks in almost excellent condition..
The salesman did a walk around with me over the phone, and all he said there was, small rock chips on the front grill\bumper area, and around the fender flares.. said their detail shop will touch up what they can before i go see it..
They are asking $36k, but over the phone, got them down to $34k...
They are a few hours away from me, but will go see it tomorrow..
What do you guys think on that price with miles and condition?
It's in line with blue book value..
I'm in northern California, so pricing are elevated a bit...

I've been looking for a few months, and around here, it's either been older trucks that are in ok shape, higher miles (mostly 200k range),priced way over blue book, or newer trucks like '16s '17s, but but they're closer to $60k.. and they are still pushing around 100k miles..
I don't want to finance or take on a big financial hit... I feel like in my price range, I'm in like no man's land-nothing to great and gonna take a hit on one thing or another....
What ever you do leave your self a lot of money for repairs, all the good miles are gone, somebody got rid of it for a reason.
