Not a 2016 but rather than start a new thread on a 2500HD, neighbor offered to give me their 2003 GMC 2500HD 8.1 gasser. Not driven since 2017.

Regarding a 2500HD in general, these seem to be good trucks based on my recent experience and I am a Ford guy. So I would have no issues buying a 2016.

That's me too. I put 18k mi on my '84 k2500 in 14 years from '85 to '99. Sold my (bought new) '99 K2500 in '17 with 38k on the odo. Bought my 2012 Silverado HD five years ago and have put gas in it three times. btw, IDK that any 2500s have had 6.0 with AFM. One can look up the RPO for the engine. It's should be in the VIN code.

Working at a GM dealership I can see the problems that show up on all makes and models, not just GM. The 6.0 family GM gas motor found in the 2500 and Tahoe, Yukon are some of the most trouble free powertrains we have! They hardly ever have problems.
