    change every fluid and filter, look over the truck extremely well, check all brake lines/hoses, run some seafoam through it, and tune it up

    will do.
    no specifics though? i know some vehicles parts are recommended to be replaces at certain mileage due to wear.

    ok cool.
    I think the trans fluid and fluid should be fine as they just did that 3 months ago. so diffs, typical oil change, filters, etc.

    yup very. Driver side you can get from the top, passenger side, pull the wheel off and go through the fender well.

    dont forget to change out the brake fluid too, the darker the fluid means the more moisture that is in it and that's bad
  16. OP
