1997 f250 few questions

Guys i just got my new to me truck. And so far i its needed a new torque converter and water pump. I also put on a 3" mbrp downpipe. I have a tripple set of guages coming from strictly diesel. And i am going to get my dp f5 chip reburned for this truck. When i replaced the Torque converter i also replaced the filter and fluid etc. I have a PA 2818 baldwin air filter coming i am going to install.

1. What else can i do too the transmission to increase durability? ( may-bey a bigger cooler or something?)

2. I want to replace my dash bulbs with some green leds. I went on LED Lights, Bulbs & Accessories - SUPER BRIGHT LEDS and found some 194 bulbs. But there are so many options i don't know what to get.

3. my driver seat cushions are really worn. Can i just buy replacement foam pieces or do i need to replace the entire seat?

4. What is the moog/precision part # for the u-joints in axleshafts of the TTB dana 50?

you could go 6.0 trans cooler, and get a valve body from john woods, or BTS, i have a good set of 40/20/40 in my garage in grey if ya interested, make sure they are the bright ones if you decide to go LED in the dash, i didnt use the super bright ones once and had several dead spots in the dash, and sorry i dont have the part #'s for ya.
but ya mite as well go D60 lol

x2 on the trans cooler and valve body, those are good inexpensive ways to make the tranny better. and with regards to the seats, you could replace and upgrade to better seats which is what many members would probably do, im not sure if you can have the foam replaced or not. and i havent seen you hon here in a while 351fifty, where ya been man?? i ask because you post like more than anyone else here lol

The interior is blue. Which is probably going to be hard to find seats for but i will look. I will see if i can get some leds from retro solutions then. Tried their Hid kit on my previous truck and it was awesome.

I had a john wood valve body in my superduty (7.3 as well.) and i did not like how hard the shifts were.

As for the TTB 50. I was just going to replace the u-joints to hold me until spring until i can find a dana 60.
