How many miles is to much

Hey guys I'm looking at an 04 duramax, don't know if it's a lb7 or lly, it's a crew cab short bed 4x4, LT, doesn't even have a gooseneck hitch. It's got 196k miles on it, truck looks to be in pretty good shape, carfax says all injectors were replaced in may of 09 at a chevy dealership. They only want 11,900 for it. The only thing I might be concerned about is the miles, I've never had a dmax though so I don't know how many is to much, should I be concerned or is this a good deal. Thanks for any replies

196K wouldn't bother me much at all.
