Nice truck,but service the trans and adjust the bands. Patc transmissions has a good site. Their manual fill valve might be of interest to you. Also their anti-flip rear servo would be a wise investment. Check out Borgeson steering boxes,I think you'll like what you read. These are great trucks with a little improvement.

Thanks for the info. Will spend some time getting to know the ins ands outs of this particular PU over next few months. I owned and driven 70's and 80's PUs for years. This will be a new experience.

My '96 V10 4X4 Has been very good to me, except the California only single catalytic converter.
I swapped out the plastic thermostat housing for a factory aluminum replacement one because I couldn't get the plastic one to seal. I tow a 5th wheel trailer with it and I've had to put front brakes on it fairly often, probably because the trip to the desert is through the mountains.
I think you will like it, I know I do.
