    Truck runs fine,but i'm debating if i want to leave it in stock form or lift and paint and other exspensive things.Im thinking if i go to sell it in the future the miles would make it hard to sell.What's yall's opinion?

    Miles would make it hard to sell. A lift and tires and other expensive things would make it harder.

    I wouldn't plan on getting your money back out of a lift and a new paint job. You might be able to get a couple hundred bucks more out of it but nothing crazy. You'd be doing it just for you in my opinion.

    If it's been maintained it really isn't near the end of its life. I'd just modify it how you want to and drive it till it won't drive anymore. Sure it might not be the most financially smart decision but it sure beats a new truck payment. plus I bet you'll enjoy driving your modded truck more than some new cookie cutter second gen
