Just picked up a 96 F-250 powerstroke

Hey all,

I've been on the forum before when I owned a 95 powerstroke. That truck already had everything done to it when I bought it. This time I'd like to do some of the work myself. Right now the truck is bone stock besides a secondary fuel filter. The front fenders are rusting out and the box is dented but hey I got it for 2 grand. Fenders and box are easy to replace and the cab is in great condition. I would like to lift it up and get some 35's on it eventually. But I think I will start with the basics, gauges, exhaust and intake. My questions is, how hard is it to install gauges. Never done it before. Also is anyone knows of a good place to order some online it would be much appreciated. Here are some pictures of the new truck:

That's the plan, make it look like the old one. I will be missing the manual tranny that I had in the old truck tho.

What would you guys do as far as steps go for your truck, I'm thinking gauges, intake, exhaust, then lift tires and rims, after that just search for a new box and get some front fenders.

As of yet nothing, but I'm torn between amp research and stock Harley-Davidson ones

Is it worth it to get gauges and a chip, or should I just go for something like this:
Edge Products Evolution CS (Color Screen) 85100

if you like the idea of the edge guages and the programer all in one.. look up Power Hungary Performance because he uses the edge programer like the CS and CTS but puts his own tunes on them so you are not left with junk gernaric tunes that suck
