2007 F350 HD PS Upgrades?

Once again I am asking for the indulgence of the outstanding members of this forum. My totally stock and fully loaded F350 (200,000 km/7 year warranty) is in need of a leveling kit (I am leaning toward a 6 inch kit), 35" tires (nothing too radical, I tow my SCCA car, boat, bikes etc. etc.) and of course gauges..I am also contemplating doing the diff's because of the tire change etc. and the mildest of mild tunes (one's' that will not void any form of my very valuable warranty..to me!) so I have of course been doing plenty of research but I would naturally like to defer to the experts (those that own, operate and wrench) here for their input. Any other mod suggestions would be very appreciated..many thanks in advance!

I'm not a big fan of lifts, but a 2.5'' leveling kit with a add a leaf for the rear is a great look for a 350 and will easily accomodate 35's. I like DiProcol optix gauges, they match the factory dash cluster lighting perfect. For tuning I'd suggest an Innovative diesel SCT Xcal3 with Eric's towing file for you.

Ride rite air springs in the rear
EGT, boost, and fuel pressure gauges by DiProcol on the pillar

Plus a few other odds and ends...

First to help with EGTs get an MBRP 3.5" downpipe and MBRP cat delete pipe. Then for a leveling/lift kit ICON 4.5" will leave it sitting nice and not too high in the rear for towing anything. IF you get the SCT you don't need to swap out gears since the new power will make up for the larger tires (AND save you a ton of cash). Gauge brand is your perference, just ensure you got an EGT gauge at a minimum.

Additional suggestions:
Oil by-pass filter kit (any quality kit will be benifitical)
Diesel Site Coolant filter kit (helps keep the gunk out of the oil cooler and EGR cooler)
EGR delete kit (you may or may not "need" this right now but plan for the future)
