Hello I am looking at a 2005 GMC 2500HD with a 6.6 it has 114000 miles. Are these good engines and about how long should one last with proper maintenance. It is a one owner vehicle. Have owned a 97 Sierra 1500 for 9 years and need something bigger to pull a 5000 lb camper. Most of my friends have F 250s but I want to stay loyal to the GM brand.

Although you didn't get my personal favorite year (2001), your 05 has the LLY Engine which is great. Like 05chevy3500 said, spend some time reading the LLY section of the forum. Lots of great information and may give you some ideas on modifications! When, not if, you do buy a Duramax, be sure to fill out your signature letting everyone know what your truck is, so they can be quicker to help you out.
