First thing would be to get a new mouth piece, that solves the overheating possibility. Then I would change the fluids out, that way you have a base line for what services are done. Then it can get as big and crazy as you want. Could get into EFI live for a tow tune with turbo brake, then gauges, and yada yada

Ok, I went back for another look/drive....I gotta have it! Now it's going to be a $ thing...sure hope it works out.

Couple questions come to mind...does this truck have the wiring for a trailer brake controller, if so where is the end of the harness? Also, can the factory power extending mirrors be swapped with the larger "camper" type mirrors? thx again, Eric

There is a plug in under the dash for the trailer plug you will need a harness, but if it's not in the glove box you can get one from any trailer shop. And yes you can swap the 06 tow mirrors onto that truck.
