Need some opinions.

I'm new here and looking to buy this truck:
1999 ford f350 crew cab long box about 115,000 miles, It has a 4in exhaust with a 5in tip, afe cold air intake, wicked wheel, DP tuner, auto trans with billet torq converter and a shift kit, gauges: egt, pyro, and trans temp.
Just wanted to get some input, and if I do buy it what else should I do to it?
Thanks.

Depending on how much mulah you have to spend.I would put a Garrett GTP38r Turbo in it.I have same setup you do and the turbo really will wake your truck up.Sounds really aggressive too.

If you dont wanna cut your header panel out, maybe find some 02-04 clear headlights and swap em out and get the canopy painted to match. Other than that just keep up on the maintenance.

The canopy will be coming off until winter, and where is the best place to look for headlights, Ebay? And how much will a turbo be?
