What to buy next???

Ok guys, so I ended up making a little extra money on a side job I have going on, and I managed to talk my wife into letting me spend $2,500.00 on my truck. And of course now that I can actually spend the money, I am having a hard time deciding exactly what to buy. I have an 05 crew cab F250 6.0. 8" Fabtech lift, fox shocks, rear bags, new 38" Toyo's, 20 Mazzi Hulks, full RBP exhaust, spray in liner, roll up tonneu cover, SCT Livewire with DJs tunes, triple pillar ISSPRO gauges, AFE intake, 3 tv screens in the truck, 2 amps, 2 10" subs, tinted windows, nerf bars, billet grille... I think that is pretty much everything I JUST ordered from Recon tonight: smoked led tailights, smoked side mirror lights, and smoked 3rd brake light, which was about $500, so I still have $2,000.00 left. I was really leaning towards an RBP grille (love them), RBP side badges, and AMP power steps. But now that I can get anything I want, I am second guessing myself... SORRY this is sooo long, but any input would help guys... Thanks alot... OH also thinking about getting some new tunes from innovative...???

all the cool accessories are nice, but the truck is no good if the antifreeze is filling the oil pan or going out the exhaust...LOL

we I guess you have tv to watch while waiting for a tow truck though

Are head studs really necessary?? I just had my head gaskets replaced under factory warranty about 2 months ago... The tech told me that the new torque rating is sooo much better than before... I wouldn't need studs... ?? Oh and what exactly is the EGR delete??

I have no info on the "new torque specs" but there are a few different options for the egr delete. All of them stop recirculating exhaust into the egr cooler and flash boiling the coolant. The major cause of 6.0 problems.

Ok I am definately NOT a mechanic... So what exactly will doing he EGR delete help me do?? Will I gain any power from it?? Also does anybody have any advice or knowledge about the difference between say DJ's tow tunes compared to Innovative's tow tunes?? I tow a trailer a few days a week so I always keep it in tow tune... I was looking at my first email from Viv and it said that the tow tune was 40 hp roughly... Does Innovative have more hp and still safe in tow tunes???
