Newbie needing help?

I don't actually own a diesel yet I am in the research phase of buying one. I have some questions that if anyone could answer I would be appreciative. First what kind of fuel mileage would I be looking at for a 6.0 dually? also any problems with this year or motor I should be checking for? I don't plan to haul alot with it more of a family commuter for long trips and haul my boat and wood trailer just like the looks of the dually better.

Looking into the 6.0L Dually, with 4.10's most drivers see 17-18 mpg on the highway empty. My truck has the 4.30's and I normally see 14.5-15.5 mpg on the highway, empty and loaded (upto 6k)I see 12-13 mpg.

I would avoid the '03-'04' out right, a number of issues with the earlier trucks. I'd say look at trucks built after Jan '06, that was the last set of upgrades to the engine. As a family commuter, the Crew Cab is a must. Even with limited towing, you'll appreciate the stability of the Dually as well.
