What NEXT????

So I have a 2004 f250 6.0 CC SB and it now has 40K original miles. I recently installed a 4" MBRP exhaust And an AFE stage 2 intake. Now i want to start modding it some more but don't know what to do next. keep in mind its not bulletproofed, but i want to hear everyone's suggestions/opinions.
