The LLY -- 04.5--05 years had a connection problem with the injectors, and a wear through on the FICM harness-- both an easy fix. Less common is some higher mileage trucks lost the head gaskets.
The 06-- can be a LLY or a LBZ--same engine and all parts-- the LLY had a mild tune. No real problems-- probably the best Duramax
