I have a friend who is selling a 2005 2500 duramax diesel, with 160k miles on it. He wants 10k for it.

Is this a good deal?
also, I have never bought a truck, a disel, or anything near 160k miles. Whats a rough estimate of how long this baby will last before having problems? (on average)

well without knowing anything else about it, yes it is a good deal. 4wd? has it had a programmer before?

The main issue with LLY trucks is the head gaskets are known to give out. But it isn't a huge issue, nowhere near the injector issue on the lb7 trucks.
