1995 F250 Powerstroke Mods

Hey all! I'm looking to do a bunch of stuff to my truck and really, all i'm looking for is opinions, so please tell me all of your suggestions for the mods i would like to do.

Here's my list, now i know it's going to take a while to get all of this (i'm 18 and buying all this myself,blehhh hahaha), I just want some suggestions:
1. Chip. I was thinking like a 6 pos (bullydog?) I don't really want EDGE in my truck, but hey, if you all recommend it, I may look in to it.
2. I want a lift; 4-6inch? I already have 35" BFG all-terrains and just waiting for some cash to put that on.
3. I am looking to replace my front and back bumpers. Now I don't know where to start here. Suggestions definitely help. My stock bumpers are all bent.
4. Exhaust system. Magnaflow? I don't know. Suggestions! Also, I would like your thoughts on a dual exhaust, or maybe the exhaust coming out before the back passenger wheel.
5. Now I don't know if my transmission can handle that chip, any thoughts on that? It's a stock transmission.
6. Eventually, later down the road, maybe some performance injectors. No idea, suggestions.

Again, thank you in advance for all the help/suggestions. It is all greatly appreciated from you all.
-Charlie

Chip: If you're going to spend money, might as well do it right the first time with some custom tunes. Tony Wildman is the way I'm going to go once I get some cash together.
Lift: 4" should be plenty. Any more than that and it's going to be a royal PITA to work on. Even with just 4", I need close to 16" of 4"x8" stacked to get my truck off the ground.
Bumpers: RanchHand. 'Nuff said.
Exhaust: I love my 4" MBRP system. Definitely delete the cat and muffler.
Transmission: Is at a ZF5 or E40D? How many miles?
I'd say do injectors and HPOP before tuning. That way it can be accounted for in the tunes.

Okay well damn, injectors are expensive, but how much would a oil pressure pump cost? Any idea? By the way, thanks for the reply! I was looking at Tony Wildman chips, but totally forgot about it! Thanks for the reminder! The transmission is a ZF5 manual, sorry I left that out in the original post, but it has 171,000 miles on it.

since you are on a budget i would start with php tunes with the 6 pos $295
6637 diy intake $65
mrbp turbo back exhaust $350
and definitely go with ranchhand bumpers and a 4" lift

IMO PHP is the way to go tuning wise. I have PHP and Bill can work magic with his tunes.

But Tony, DP, Matt @ Gearhead, they are all very good too, you won't be disappointed in any of them.

Before I did anything I would do the 6637 intake, which is just a NAPA air filter part# 6637. Then do your exhaust, make sure to get a turbo back exhaust because it comes with the 3" downpipe. The DP on our trucks stock is like a pancake. I been looking at duals myself for a little while and I like the diamond eye exhausts. But if your gonna go single exit then MBRP is pretty tough to beat too.

Also while your looking at ranch hand bumpers, look at buckstop bumpers. One of the members here (weareweird69) has a sick OBS with that bumper on there. check it out and see what you think.
