new 7.3...what to go over

Hey Guys

I just got a 2000 f350 about 3 months ago that has 240 000km on it. It runs great and everything but I want to get it into shape and my own maintenance schedual. All I have done so far is put new CAT batteries and cables in it but I was just wondering what you guys do when you buy a new used vehicle to get it up to your standards?

I like to change every fluid and belt and filter and give it a good clean so I can see what was and wasn't taken care of.

Also is there anything out of the ordinary that I should be keeping an eye on or listening for? Any cheap easy upgrades I can do right away?

The 6637 intake mod isn't very expensive and is a good mod starting point if you haven't done it yet.

2001 f250 4x4
319,000 miles and counting.
6637 intake, 4 inch MBRP exhaust,gauges,203 degree therostat, leveling kit, transgo tugger kit, front and rear mag-hytec diff covers, more to come.

4" straight exhaust gauges and a chip will be the difference between night and day, thats about it unless your into some hardcore activities then you will want to invest in injectors and a turbo, if its just a daily driver then you'll be good to go

My avatar is my goal for the 7.3
