Bulletproofing Advice?

So my old man called me up and wanted to know what he should do to his truck to bulletproof it without breaking the bank. It's an '05 F250 6spd CCLB SRW w/ about 87k on it. Mostly used as a farm truck with quite a bit of towing trailers under 16k. Here's the very basic list of the mods that I had done to mine this past summer and I was wondering if there was any more that I should be including.

EGR Delete

Fuel Regulator "Blue Spring" update

Oil Cooler replace

Coolant Flush and replace with ELC non-silicate coolant

Coolant Filter

OEM Head gaskets

ARP Headstuds

6.4 Banjo Bolt update

Change all fluids and filters in the truck including differentials over to synthetics

S&B Air Intake

Edge Insight monitor to keep an eye on temps

EGT probe for Insight

4" single straight pipe turbo back no cat/ no muff

All injectors need to be tested and heads checked for cracks

Thanks in advance for your help!

2006 F250 CC SB Lariat

The Guts:
Edge CTS Monitor
SCT X3 Programmer
Magnaflow 4" Dual Exhaust Straight Pipe
ARP Head Studs
EGR delete
Blue Spring Mod
Coolant filter
Schaeffer Synthetic Oils
S&B Air Filter

The Extras:
Airlift Airbag System
Aftermarket sound with single 8" sub
20% tint all the way around
18" Eagle black/chrome wheels wrapped with 295/70 Nitto Trails

More to come this summer!
