Hi Gang, finally got tired of crank windows and manual door locks on my 2000 Silverado work truck. Yesterday the 2000 turned into a 2010 with allot more creature comforts. One owner well taken care of 5.3 with a little over 150,000.

Still learning what all the original owner has done to the truck. I know the Active fuel management has been disabled and he obviously installed some after market high flow exhaust, it's a little loud but sounds kinda cool.

MY 2000 had 260,000 on the clock and still ran and drove like new. Any thing I should be on the lookout for with the 2010?

If you're using it as a work truck, try to be gentle on the door handles, particularly the interior ones. They're attached to the door panel itself instead of the inner door skin; they break somewhat easily and the dealer solution is you replace the door panel. There's an aftermarket kit that lets you glue/screw a replacement handle to the panel; much cheaper solution, looks like it may hold up fine.

Some may argue it but the disabled AFM is a good thing. Keep up with your oil changes and use the GM recommended spec and weight of oil. Listen for any lifter ticking, knocking, squeaking. Had 'em go bad twice in my 2009 6.0 work truck but it was indeed worked hard.

Thanks for the info. Looking under the hood I found a big black hose that says K&N, looked under the truck and not one spec of rust on anything, looks like it has been undercoated. This truck was well taken care of by the original owner and I plan to follow with the same.

I say follow what it was maintained like.
Sounds like the PO was on the right direction.
Just a FYI things got really cheap.
Keep an eye on the transmission. HAve seen my share of torque converters that give out around that mileage.
Good luck with the upgrade
