    Welcome to the forum. Assuming all the normal maintenance has been done and the engine/trans are running well, there are plenty more mods to do. If you want to improve performance, the first thing I'd do is fix the intake. Right now it's pulling in more hot air than cold. You can find some nice aftermarket CAI setups that'll fix that right up for ya. Then ditch the Hypertech and go for a custom tune.

    Beyond that, you're probably looking at getting into the engine, which I'd be hesitant to do with that many miles on the drivetrain. I would personally wait for a rebuild and then go crazy. But that should get ya started!

    honestly iam satisfied with the performance..iam more looking for appearance and interior mods

    iam used to the 4.0's that come in the ford rangers so this is like a major upgrade from what iam used

    Very cool truck. Enjoy.

    LOL at you are happy with the performance. You meant to say happy with the performance FOR NOW! The fun has just begun, wait until you program it and do minor bolt-ons like intake.

    I had a great rare 98 Tahoe 2 door that I rang up 119K miles without a burp. Now my dad has it since I got the TB SS. So I still "borrow" it every now and again.

    It's had some Boyds on it over the years, my dad still asks me to give him some "normal" rims and tires. LOL.

    Enjoy your Chebby!!

    Thats a really good looking truck you got there. Definitely a good start on it. I can show you some pics of my old 97 show truck if you'd like...maybe you can get some ideas from it.
