Get the VIN and post for a report. Find out how old the injectors are and whether or not 2 and 7 have given the owner any trouble.

I would still post up that VIN and see what dealer involvement has happened.

Take the truck for a drive, that will give you the best indication. How does the transmission shift? How well do the breaks work? Etc... I would also check the ground underneith the truck before and after the drive for any leaking fluids.

i just got done shopping for a duramax and ended up with an 03, post the vin on here its worth it with usually a one to two day turn around, make sure you check the axles for leaks also, i dont know how many trucks i saw that has moisture everywhere, power steering pumps, fuel tanks, brake boosters, also if its 4x4 makes sure to test that out, ive run across a few that had problems with that, good luck
