I need advise on Mods for my everyday driver!!

I have a 2008 F350 FX4 crew cab. This is both business use and personal. I travel all over the east coast with this truck for business and almost all highway, except for the job site visits. I also beat around town when home in Maine. Not hard on the truck. I need to know safe modifications to due on this rig for better fuel milage, all around, some more power, but due to so much traveling in the US, I don't need a ton of smoke when rolling on it...
Please help...
Thank you,
Eric

you're going to find that the basic mods (like listed above) are not only best for performance, but also best for a long and happy life for your rig.

I would add a good lift pump to that list, and call it done.. either FASS or AirDog- choose your poison..
