Early 99

I have an opportunity to buy an early 99 f350 extended cab long bed for 6600 it has a bunch of miles but its my grandpas and I know he takes it in every month and has it serviced whether it needs it or not. Took it to ford to have it rebuilt just because he is rich and they told him the cylinders still have the cross etching in them and compression is the same as the factory recommends. Has a manual and has no problems what so ever been very taken care of motor and tranny wise body has a few dings and scratches but its a truck. So my question is if I buy it what would be the first thing you would do? I'm gonna make it a tow vehicle for my wifes horses what is the first thing to get besides a monitor to watch temps

It is and I don't want a fast blow smoke everywhere just something that is reliable and that will pull my trailers anywhere I need them to. Plus it has a sentimental effect on it

The list still works, just get yourself a good tow and economy tune and enjoy.

Get a modded valve body for the trans, a larger trans cooler, and an external trans filter. Then you'll be set.

There's no valve body in a hand shaker.
