I have an early 99 also and I love it! I bought the truck real cheap a couple of years ago because I thought the tranny was goin. Well after all of the mods you see that I have done and the trannys still going strong @ 168000 miles. Not to mention I haul a heavy skidsteer (total weight truck & equip.:23000 Lbs.) on a weekly basis. I change the tranny fluid every year which helps. And now with the much bigger 6.0 cooler the tranny runs much cooler which is a big help to the life of a auto. Just like the 4cstr said, I would buy a 99.5 or newer. I changed all of those goodies on mine and it was fun. And 2000 models had 25 more Hp than the 99's. I have had several 7.3's and they are tough as nails. I'm getting mine ready for its first trip to the drag strip next weekend with dual hpops and see how she holds up!
