    Sounds like a nice truck man! Did you know the prev. owner? If not, or if you don't know service records, I would start by changing pretty much all fluids. Drop tranny pan and change filter, rear diff, t-case, oil, radiator. It's good insurance and peace of mind

    With A/T tires, unless they were just put on as a cheaper replacement from a dealer, it probably wasn't wheeled too hard.

    If you have no records, change the standard stuff to get it on your schedule, so you know when its time to do the next! Keep records so when/if you sell the next owner will thank you. Welcome and enjoy your ride.....
