No sir, no plans for mods in the future. Nothing against them just nervous about changing things with this many miles. Besides it does good enough for me.

For the record, 170k around here is just the tip of the iceberg. Many guys mod well after that mileage wise. If you don't want anything that's quite alright, but if you ever get that bug, it happens to the best of us, plenty of great guys around to help you spend your hard earned dough!

I don't blame you bud. Sometimes I wish I could find a truck as nice and clean looking as yours still bone stock and just leave it that way......but I can't seem to leave anything alone! LOL! I've been told I have a tinkering problem! LOL! You may want consider a 6637 intake and 3" down pipe at least though. Not a major mod, but a great upgrade to these rigs to help them breath better and free up a couple HP. It's just bolt on stuff and could probably do both for under $200.

I will consider it, thanks for the info. Its amazing all of the stuff you guys know. I am not the most mechanical so that is the biggest reason it is still stock.
