Old Truck.. Issues?..

OK all. My trucks got 207,000 on it.

It runs good...

When I first start up say 60 degree weather i will puff blue smoke for about 5-10 minutes then all clear. Just started doing it this last year.

Also it doesn't seem like its got that power anymore. Something is holding it back .. especially with a trailer.

Say I put 5,000lbs on the back it doesn't want to go anywhere it will move but doesn't like it. Tranny is brand new. By now theres 60,000 miles on it and I never changed out the T/C.

Now when empty,...... When I was back in utah if I put I put cruise control on at 75 and was going up a 6% grade it would loose about 1 mph by the top of the hill mile long hill.... If I stomp on it in the middle of the grade it will downshift but not want to go too much faster up the grade... I know its a good hill and whatnot but if I have a 5,000lb trailer on I'm lucky to hit 55 by the top of the hill start at 75mph. It just seems like its lacking a bit...

I am in the works of completely tearing down the truck and am going to put stage 1's in but what else is a good preventative measure while im in there...
The truck is as of right now no longer a daily driver so nothing is time restrictive...

Not that it matters in this case but I posted pictures of my work so far. only thing that has been done since the pictures was I ripped the interior completely out...

I am planing to have the entire truck Rhino Lined...

Anything for the power loss.... Is there any screens or anything on/in the fuel tanks I could check while the bed is off

I do too. Just the truck is a hardcore truck... Haul Cattle in the mountains and run in the Oilfield alot. Plus usual hard wear/tear. Needless to say the body is far from perfect and I want to preserve that so I was thinking rhino lining don't look half bad and would solve a big problem...
