Question Best glow plugs?

I took my truck to a diesel mechanic he says I have 6 bad glow plugs? Wondering how my truck even starts with 6 bad glow plugs?

And what's the best kind to buy?

i have 6 bad right now and mine starts just fine. i get some white smoke on start up because the plugs arent warming the cylinders (mixture of injectors going out and bad glowplugs) im putting oem plugs back in mine, i dont really know of any aftermarket ones that would be any better.

beru or bosch imo.

just make sure they all match

8 BERU GLOW PLUGS 8973649681 CHEVY GMC V8 6.6 Diesel | eBay

brand new beru's for a low price. and that's for 8, so you could replace all of them, not just the 6, and still be cheaper.

My #7 glow plug just went out the other day. When I replace it should I just go ahead and do them all? Is the one bad ganna mean the rest will go bad shortly too?
