Fixing up my 7.3L.... where do I start?

Okay, some of you may have seen my post about me either selling my Dodge Ram or looking to buy a 6.7L. 6.7L trucks cost WAY to much for me, and the stick shift truck is gonna go.

Truck in the sig, what would you do? Got some money to make her nice. Plan on doing so.

It has a lot of miles, but nothing for a 7.3L. (240k)

I was thinking of adding...
62 gallon fuel tank
Kenwood touch screen w/ backup camera and subs
Some sort of brush guard/winch bumper
2008-2010 center console
Ditch the superchips and get a DP tuner
4" downpipe (the rest is already done)

What else?...

2002 F350 Roll A-long (a really fancy lariat) crew cab, LB, 4x4. RPB exhaust, Superchips Flashpaq tuner, AFE intake, autometer gauges, 2.5" leveling kit, 50 HP injectors.

With a tuner you will need to monitor everything so a set of gauges.

Custom tunes. DP isn't that popular anymore. PHP, TW, Gearhead, Tyrant, BTS, and that's all I can think right now.
Valve body for the trans. Maybe a 6.0 cooler depending on your cooling needs.
Bigger exhaust housing on the turbo. GTP38r even?
HPOP would not hurt.
At least a FRx if not a fuel system.

DP Tuners still have a following though... I have them on the red truck and yellow truck, and willl get one for the Excursion at some point, to ditch the Edge Evolution. To each their own, I've had a good experiance with DP...

Nice list of mods... between what you already have done, and what you want to do, I can't really think of anything to add!
