Congrats on your new truck!

Look at my truck. I have an 01 Sport Offroad Edition.

Easy way to tell: Sport has body color front and rear bumpers and quad beam headlights.

Offroad Edition will say 4x4 Offroad on the tailgate and you can check to see if the front axle housing is trussed, or reinforced. It also sits up higher stock and came with 17x8 inch rims with 33" tires.

I would change all the fluids and filters. Transmission fluid, oil, transfer case, axles, etc. Change the sparkplugs, distributor cap and rotor. Check to see if your plenum gasket is good. Jack up the front end and rock the tire back and forth to check your ball joints and steering for wear.

Mine has been a good truck, but it sucks gas like no other. I average about 11 city and 13-14 highway. I'm battling a/c issues right now.
