Info on a 2011 hemi ram

My mother in law might be buying a 2011 hemi qc, sb, 4x4, 155k miles. Is there anything specific to that year that I need to be aware of? I'm familiar with 3rd gens but I haven't worked on any of the newer stuff

Lifters are the only real issue.

Actually 2011 has VVT and MDS. But yes the lifters rollers and cam destruction are the only real issues they have
