    Default 2001 silverado hd 6.0

    Im looking at the title mentioned truck with 111,000 miles and was wondering what a realistic expectation is on engine/ truck life. I know the tranny is probably the only concern but does anyone know how long a well maintained 6.0 usually lasts considering most people only buy 3/4 and ton trucks to tow and haul. any info is appreciated thanks
