Looking at 2002 Chevy 2500 HD 4x4 Diesel, 220,000 miles. I'm told truck diesel engines like this last 500,000 miles. I'm new to diesel and buying a truck with that much mileage on it. What warning signs should I be looking for with either the engine or the chassis?

Feel free to answer here or point me to a specific thread on a truck forum that will answer my question. Truck will be used for hauling boats, some landscaping trees and various small construction site jobs. Getting better gas mileage is a concern as well. Thanks for your help.
Also, are there makes from that era known to have better diesel engines?
