Lightbulb So I got a buddy...

Who is thinking about getting himself a diesel, more than likely used, and is leaning towards a Duramax. He is not sure when he will be able to finally buy one, though he is looking to spend about $10k or less. What year range and what kind of mileage is he going to be looking at for that kind of money? Also he is interested in a CC or extended cab (sorry I dont know what cab options yall got) and whatever bed is fine. 4x4 isnt a must but would be nice.

From what I get out of him, truck will be a DD that he might want to get a simple programmer for, or even leave stock for a while. Reliability is a big concern- from what I understand, didnt the earlier model years have some injector issues?

I am at a point where I myself am not biased to the point where I will tell him to go with a Dodge/Cummins (even though I am on my second one and love my 12v's) and I cant argue with the new school diesels of today.

Thank you guys in advance, from him and me, for the numorous replies I am sure I will get on this one!
