06 Duramax

So what do you know about a Duramax? I've owned an F250 with the 7.3 but don't really know much else about other diesels.

The one I'm looking at is an 2006 Chevy 2500 4x4. It has 209k on it and looks to be in good shape. Is there anything I should look for, anything that normally needs repaired/replaced around this age/milage? Anything that should have been replaced by now that I should ask about?

I've been trying to read up on them but my window to buy this is small, I've got to let him know by tomorrow morning. From what I'm reading the LBZ is the one to own.

Not sure if there is a way to check injectors. Co-worker's needed new injectors and it would cost as much as the truck is worth.

Yep. Injectors on those are crazy expensive, and go out pretty much every 100k.
