Purchasing Advice

I have recently decided to upgrade to a crew cab truck from my Jeep TJ due to growing family needs. Having looked around in my area, a 2007 Titan LE stands out among several F-150s. I will include a link to the post at the end. I want to get a buyers inspection done on it by a local Midas, but what else do I look for that the average mechanic wouldn't catch? What are some of the common problems assocciated with the 2007 titan? It's sitting at roughly 126k miles and despite the number of miles it has, I'm looking for a vehicle that doesn't require a lot of maintenance since that is part of the reason I'm looking to upgrade from the Jeep. Thanks for any help.

The last F150 I bought was in Anchorage I think if you compare comparable models, say an 04-07 F150 to the Titan, they both will have their issues, Fords in those years will have cam Phaser issues, problems when changing spark plugs( they like to weld themselves into the head and usually will break off when trying to remove them) and rear axle seal (not just a Nissan problem). Not sure what other trucks you have looked at or the mileage, but 126K on a 10 year old truck is below average From what I can see looking at the pictures, it looks like it is in good shape, considering it is an Alaska truck, most people don't realize how brutal Alaska can be on a vehicle.
looking at the pics, it does look like the passenger rear has been hit, that bumper looks a little off...angled down and pushed forward a bit.
Indy, my son had his 05 in the shop a few months ago because it was running rough, he's away at college driving the 05 we bought for him. WIt ended u being aCOP that wasn't working but we also had the dealership do the spark plugs for him, they broke 6 of them. Of course they charge extra for the removal of broken plugs, even though it is caused by their own design. His 05 has also been in for cam phasers, rear seals (twice) Yet it only has 47k miles on it.
Never heard of any fires or fuse box issues
