Hit 299K and all this went wrong ( LIST )

This is not a complaint but some useful info. I have a tuned/4" piped other then that stock drive train 03 7.3L PSD That i have worked the crap out of. Loads 4 days a week some 2k others 20k. In the last week I had a ton of stuff go to Sh**. Thought I would throw it out there for some talk..........
Read code today and this
-Bad PCM
-Exhaust pressure control Valve
(Beg Week)
-2ea bad U joints REPLACED AND NO VIBRATION NOW
-Tranny shaking BAD ( Shift 3-4 ) slipping ( ADDED A LUCUS BOTTLE, SWELDED UP THE BANDS AND SHIFTS ARE CRISP FOR NOW )
-Window switch out ( 3 weeks ago )
- Front caliper sticking (REPLACED ABS LINE AND FIXED UP LIKE NEW)
- Front pass hub assembly bearing bad ( Replaced AND PERFECT NOW )
-HPOP o'rings leaking
-P1211 code ( Injection control Pressure/Pressure )
-My police siren stopped working, I traced the problem to the outside horn. ( REPLACED GRAOUND WIRE, FIXED AND LOUD)

I need to replace every bushing/bearing and sensor along w/ a new tranny and I will have a new truck. Looking to get 600K hopefully. It's a decked out leather lariat, In my opinion there is nothing better. I like my 6.0L but love my 7.3L.

Replaced ujoints some bearing and small fixes. Truck is running tough on original ( Motor/injectors/tranny/turbo/diffs/ect) the thing is a bad a$$ beast pulling it's whole life and still tough at 299,693 tonight.
I will take a pic at 300,000 which is impressing me on the work it has done
