Default What ive decided to do....

so this is what im goin to do.... ive been debating on whether or not to sell my truck once it reaches roughly 130k to 140k miles. im at 107k now. i kno i have quite a while before i even reach that point but i had to decide now because i was debating on whether i wnat to put more money into my truck. i asked around on how reliable and long lasting,,etc this truck is and it always came back good, i didnt ask on here cus i felt thered b a bit of bias ha.
but anyways i think im gunna keep my truck til it dies. im about to enter college for atleast 4 yrs, mayb 6. so i need it to last me.

so here is what im goin to do to my truck since im keeping it;

-this summer: fix the suicide door rot, put on the roll bar and off road lights that i have sittin in my garage, and por-15 the underbody

-next summer: put a magnaflow on with a cold air intake too.... and blkout head and tail lights

-when the time comes for new tires, put a bl on too and get some 33's

that the remaining big things, can you guys think of anything? thx

im guessing you guys have problems with rust because you live where it snows and the salt makes it rust?

shoot your at 107,000 miles? I went into college and my truck had 180k miles on it.
