This a good truck/deal?

I found an '02 duramax 4x4 crewcab with 210K miles for 9 grand, I thought this was a pretty good deal... What are the common problems in the year model with this high miles or what is your take on a truck like this? I love the interior of a chevy but don't sure about the front end on a 4x4...

'06 4x4 2500 QCSB 5.9 - 155,000 miles

Dads:
'11 4x4 3500 MC DRW 6.7 - 55,000 miles
'08 4x4 2500 MC SRW 6.7 - 115,000 miles
'09 4x4 3500 CC DRW 6.6 - 118,000 miles

They have had alot of injector problems. I wouldnt be scared of the milage. I would say if the interior and exterior appear to be nice it soulds like a good deal.

9k for a dmax isn't too bad, drive it and see if it makes any weird noises. see how the steering feels, just get a feel for the truck. Only you can really say if its worth it. I'm 99% sure the injectors have been changed once or twice on it already.

The injector issues sound crazy... If they are good now, and I rebuilt them with bigger nozzles, how expensive would that be and what would they last longer?
