01-04 Duramax LB7?

I've had my current truck for about 4 years now, its a good truck but I've put some money into it and I need something that would be a better personal truck. So for my budget ($11,000 or under) I figured the duramax LB7 engine would be my best option. I've been looking at trucks and prices, and have found a few trucks that meet my criteria and have roughly 200,000 miles on them. I'm not so worried about the miles, as I only travel 10,000-12,000 miles a year. I also know that this generation dmax has the injector problems and I can probably expect to replace them every 100,000+ miles on average. Otherwise, to my understanding, there are no other major problems with this engine. If anyone has any advise for me on this, feel free to help me out.

Oh, and I am not going to consider dodge or ford, I don't want one. I am set on the duramax right now.
