2008 F350 6.4

Hey guys, Im new to this and although there is lots of advice out there, I've always found that actual owners are the best source of advice. So here goes...
Just bought a very nice, 08 F350 with the 6.4, totally stock with 19k miles. I would like the mileage increase, but also want to make the truck as reliable as possible for years to come. Is the dpf delete necessary? The tuners without the delete option for the egr and dpf are much cheaper, but I dont want to waste money. How about the exhaust? Should i change it from the cat back? Do just the dpf pipe? I wouild definetely like to dress up the tail pipe with something else, but are there sensors that need deleted?
Now you dont have to answer every question....if the DPF delete tuner is the best way to go, then say that with the complete exhaust change out. I'm not interested in smoking...nor do I pull this truck for a living. I buy old mustangs and drag them home way too often, and pull the camper around. Thanks for your help!

All about your budget. Delete for sure if you want mileage and dependability. I went with just a delete pipe for the exhaust. It cost less than $200 but I wanted to keep my truck stock appearing. A full system looks better and should gain a slight mileage increase.

I have 2010 F350....bought it this past Jan with 10K mile on it. I drove it for first few months stock. The DPF clean cycles were pain to manage. I did ALOT of research and decided to delete and tune. H&S Minimaxx and DPF delete pipe. I left rest of exhaust stock. Truck has more power now and more reliable. The tuner overrides all the exhaust sensors and it also "turns off" the EGR valve unless you run "Stock" tune.

Just to clarify, only the "easy" tunes cycle the egr. The mild and hd300 tunes do not.
