    I disagree but would only recommend a 6.0 if "bulletproofed"...with 2006-2007 being preferred. No first gen 6.0...wiring harnesses and such.

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    Gm with Duramax/Allison is a nice truck. Like any truck, there are know problems with each year to look out for. 01-04 have injector problems. Make sure they have already been replaced. 01-07 have a transfer case issue that can be prevented with an inexpensive fix. The engine and transmission pulls well and are generally very reliable.

    6.0s are good engines as long as they are not abused or molested. A genuine stock 6.0, a later version as stated above, will make a very reliable truck.
