Great question. So here is what I am thinking. I have to get this truck solid before I can do anything really to it. It needs about $1000 worth of work to get there. I have a list of things I am working on right now. See below. Next, I am thinking of adding a Smarty Touch Screen S2G for tuning. There is a guy in Michigan and he is on this forum too that is offering to help me with the tune if I get this tuner. I have a 48RE that is having some issues right now. I am ordering the GM Governor Pressure Solenoid upgrade aftermarket kit for this transmission. I am not shifting into OD and this should fix that problem and upgrade a part. That is my main focus, upgrade when I am repairing something. So I have to get this trans shifting correctly or I am going to have it rebuilt this summer and put a Suncoast kit in it.
Truck repair list: This seems like a long list, but these are they types of things to consider when purchasing a 13 year old truck with 240,000 miles on it.
I was prepared that it was going to need most or all of this before I purchased it and made my acquisition accordingly.

Fuel filter and fuel pump, fuel tank straps, clean fuel tank
Shocks front and rear
