    I been look for cheap diesel truck but saw alot Suburban with diesel.

    1992-1998 with 6.5L diesel turbo. Miles range 100-250K miles.

    Would you say anything issues about 6.5L are they reliable or need baby to keep run?

    From what I heard they will go destruct when miles around 250-300K miles due weak crankshaft? How to keep that from happened?

    Only thing I would use for Tow heavy trailers like estimated around 10K lb. Would it handle no problem?

    What mpg they get average on city and highway? I check it 13-24 mpg depend how drivers handle.
