Bought my 02 2500hd with a 6.0 with 70,000 miles from a dealership in 04. been pulling bobcats and things with it since then. Dont forget it was only a weekend thing up until this past year or so and its now got 193,000 on it and I dont dare put anything behind it unless I am just moving it from my house to the shop (4 miles)
I have a buddy with a 01 2500 with a 6.0 that has been abused waaaayyyyy more then the average diesel. Guy is 31 years old and drives like he's 16. even when he's pulling his dump trailer and plowing. 185k miles and motors never been touched. 2 transmissions and 1 rear end. Truck is lifted too. Best thing is when it goes you get a new motor for 3000 or less.
