Question Maintenance Suggestions???

My '02 F-250 just turned 150K and seems to be still running strong. I love my truck and I'm a bit of a backyard mechanic which is to say that I like to do my own work but I'm worried that I might be neglecting something. Since I purchased the truck at 40K miles, it hasn't had any issues. I've performed just the minimal maintenance items. Should I be doing more with this engine? I am definitely not a mechanic nor do I claim to be. Probably more like glorified lube tech. I've been wondering what else I should do?? Any thoughts? I try to do most of my work myself as $ is tight. Curious to your thoughts...

Coolant filter - people have made homemade or then there's this kit
Then regularly change fluids, grease the front end
And maintenance for me kind of means smart mods / upgrades
So as for that then better exhaust - 4" exhaust turbo back
And air intake - there's the 6637 mod or ais intake
There's additional pre fuel pump filter/water separator you could add
Upgrade your trans cooler to a larger trans cooler from the 6.0
Gauges - egt, trans temp, boost - varies on preference
New fuel filter
