i like the ebay ad, no reserve cheap and yet its at $7k reserve not met.....??? thats alot of miles even for a diesel. tranny's, ball joints, injectors, etc, they arent cheap to fix. the truck does look for clean though. im not a GM guy but i thought those early 6.6's had alot of injector problems

Id buy it. Trucks still got a good 100k to go. Especially if you can get it under 10k. Duramax is a dam good engine. And its most likely got the updated injectors in it by now.

I think 10 is an okay starting point. 8 sounds better to me. I personally would not buy a truck with over 200k with a gooseneck or 5th wheel in the bed.
