I'm a first time owner of a Chevy Tahoe, and I'm looking to get the most out of it.

Since I still have the window sticker, here's what she's got.
99 2 Door Tahoe LS 2WD
Vortec 5700 V8 5.7 SFI
4 Speed electronic trans
3.42 Rear Axle Ratio
Disc/Drum brakes

Flowmaster Single out
K&N Filter in stock box.

I looking for what reliable, dependable, beneficial upgrades I can do to her. I don't want waist my time with useless items, so I'm coming to you guys who have been thru it, and know what the best results are with whatever products.

Brakes/ (Las Vegas Heat) with ABS, can I do it on my own, what do I need.
Powerplant upgrades
Rear end needs
At almost 50,000 miles, what issues should I been watching out for.
I'm running Mobil 1 SUV 5W-30
When do I need to flush the radiator
Change the tranny fluid/rear end
Can I take it a dealer to check for recalls
Do they do normal 50,000 service

Hypertech for performance upgrade.
Services are normally every 30000 miles.
Coolant and brake flushes every two years.
tranny rear end at 60000 mile service.
You can probably check the internet for recalls.

I've got a 99 2-DR. 4x4 , duals w/Magnaflow , stainless headers , K&N filtercharger kit , and Hypertech model 32000 . It runs like a muscle car and gets good MPGs . You're lucky to find one with such low miles . In the next 50 is when you can expect the intake seal to fail , common on late 90s V-8s . Enjoy yours I enjoy mine .
