I wouldn't chip it for another 45K
I wouldn't run veggie oil in it for another 45K
I wouldn't use waste oil (like dino oil) ever
I would suggest keeping it under 2000rpms for best mpg
3.55's are better for hwy mpg but since you want to chip it I assume you want to go fast also... you won't win any redlight drag races with 3.55's. 3.55's are also less favorable for towing.
I would suggest flushing the trans, coolant, and changing all filters now. Keep up with maintainence and you can expect to have that truck for another 250,000miles. Just get out of the first 100k mark, or 2008 before you start modding it. Tust me, you'll have plenty of time to do this stuff later. I didn't want to wait, so I bought my truck right at 100,000 miles.
