anyone ever had someone else, or a inspection service look at a truck?

I'm looking at buying a truck thats 5 hrs away.

I'll drive down there to buy it, but am thinking about some sort of pre buy inspection, just so I dont drive down for nothing.

anyone every done anything like this?

I always have my trusted mechanic look at my purchase before the deal is done. In this case, where the car is 5 hours away and you probably don't have a trusted mechanic in that area I would use the dealer.
