PSD noob question- transmission durability

Ok im looking into getting a psd by the end of the summer. I need some thing i can tow with sometimes, and just be able do a little work when i need it. I plan on doing gauges, intake, exhuast, and a TW chip. Is this gonna be too much for the automatic trans? I would like to show off occasionaly, but above all the truck needs to be reliable every day. Im going to school right now and cant afford a transmission rebuild. I know the truck is reliable in stock form. Should i just leave it?

intake and exh would be ok, custom tunes will not be bad on a trans but would at least look into a upgraded valve body.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
