Default Thoughts on New cam with HS 1.75 rockers

Curios to see what ya'lls thoughts are on installing a mild cam along with Harland Sharps 1.75 roller rockers on a 1996 1500 5.9 4x4 truck that has 185,000 miles. I just had the transmission rebuilt. The truck does not leak anything and has good power as it stands. Don't know if I need to do a rebuild kit first or if anyone has done this before on a engine with mile this high. Also thought about a Fastman throttle body as well. I plan on giving this truck to my son in about 4 years but thought I could play with it for now. Thanks.

It depends on what you want to do with the truck . If your towing I would say look into a cam . Roller rockers are always a plus . You won't see gobs of power increase . But anytime you can free up a friction point is always a plus for ya .
