    Welcome!

    Start with regular maintenance. Change oil, new spark plugs, clean the throttle body, new air filter, change diff fluid and run a fuel cleaner through the tank.

    Welcome aboard! Only 28K?!? I've got an '05 with 226K and he runs like a scared rabbit! Take Caspers advice and then do some smokey burnouts! That truck needs some breaking in! :burnrubber:

    I thought I had it good, my '06 has 74k miles on it. I did have to buy a new AC compressor though because mine sat under the sun for six months. This summer I started using the A/C and it busted some dry rotted seals in the system. I get 21 mpg highway btw.
