What should my first mod be?

I have saved up a little money for my 2002 f-250 70,000 mile stocker. I only have enough for one of these upgrades this month. Which one should I go with? Thanks for the advise.
1. 4" exhaust from turbo back
2. Fords extreme air kit.
3. cts monitor only
4. Have 6.0L trans cooler already. gift from Ford buddy.

Not looking to build into drag truck. Use it every day for work and tow no more 7,000 pounds.

All fluids have been changed since I got it at 66,000

Definitely put the 6.0l cooler in. That will help tremendously with your tranny temps.

Out of what you have listed, I would say the cts to monitor the truck or the ford ais intake.

Imo you will not benefit from the exhaust, it would be mostly for the tone.

Most beneficial from your list are the cooler and intake. Next I would do guages or the cts you listed. I feel guages should be one of the first things so you can see how the truck is currently. This will give you a baseline of how the truck behaves. This will also help you out as you upgrade/mod
