Mods for 96 350 4x4 CC

My wife just purchased a 96 f350 CC 4x4 that is stock. I am currently in Afghanistan and will be home in 2.5 or so months. When I get home I am planning on adding a DIY 6637 filter, 4-inch with 3-inch downpipe exhaust, gauges, and a TW chip. MY main concerns are longevity of the truck. I will be doing some light towing(3 horse trailer). I was thinking of getting an intercooler but have read that I do not really need it for what I am doing. I am totally new to diesel and have learned a lot from this forum. What do you folks think of my plans? If you would add something or have some tips please let me know. Price of mods is not a huge issue because I got a good deal on the truck(I hope) and think I will recoup any cost with increased efficiency/longer lifespan. I have referenced this article in coming up with my mods 7.3L Power Stroke Power Recipes - Ford Diesel Trucks - Diesel Power Magazine I am all eyes.

First of all Thank you for your service...

as far as your list is concerned you pretty much have everything you need... is the truck an automatic? if so i would just add a larger trans cooler to help keep the temps down...

if you need any pricing let me know.. i can get you everything you want and we offer military discount

Just like Raul, I would like to sincerely thank you for your service.

You would be surprised how much the list of mods you added will wake up your truck. As mentioned already I would also add a tru-cool 4739 (40k gvwr) cooler to the bumper, super duty 3/8" lines, and a BTS valvebody to that list. My brother and I just did those mods to his truck and wow what a difference. Shifts are beautiful and his Trans temps dropped by about 30-40 degrees. Install was simple, only took about half a day and we were taking out time since it was over 100* outside.

Wish I would have know about the discount, difference Alone would have made me drive to your house lol, but I agree with everything stated, but a DIY IC set up would help a lot, I run one and it's amazing, I tow as much as possible I'm Tony's extreme mode

Does anyone know if there's a difference, performance wise, between stacks (dual or single) and a regular straight through exhaust? Im looking at putting a 4in turbo back exhaust and was just wondering what people have seen.

I have an automatic so trans cooler is on the list. What lines are being referenced here,"super duty 3/8" lines"? Raul, I will hopefully lay hands on the new truck in about 2.5 months and will shoot you and PM.
