LB7 Injectors or kind of funny, as in they arent a reliable part. Could go 100,000 before needing replace, or 300,000. Other problems are the rear seal of the transfer case, and in some rare cases head gasket issues. Nothing too horrible.

Yep - injectors would be the most expensive issue.

Also make sure all the brake lines have been upgraded (cost over $1000 at most shops)

Look for rusty frame under clean body

ABS sensors should have been corrected as well
