I bought this truck in 1998 and decided to replace the engine and renew the body. The engine still had power (5.9) and had no oil leaks but burned oil. I had over 277 thousand miles on the engine and wanted to replace it if I was going to redo the body. I changed a few things on the paint scheme like painting the mirrors and air dam from black to red to match the rest of the body. I also removed the emblem on the front grille and the lettering on the hood, the side doors and rear tailgate except for the SS/T. It is a great truck and a lot of fun to drive. I have some work plans for the interior that I hope to start soon.
