First time 7.3 owner

Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself on the 7.3 board. Just purchased my first diesel vehicle and my first truck.

It's a 2002, w/164,000. Verified records including two transmissions flushes (one at 60,000 and one at 110,000) as well as some other routine maintenance.

Drives amazing, extremely happy I made this purchase. I know the truck is lifted and has 315/75r16's on the stock rims. I've read a 50/50 consensus on whether that size tire should be on the stock rim. I'm possibly looking at a 16x10 wheel so I can keep the tires.

I need to do the routine maintenance such as oil change etc immediately and I plan to do gauges, tuner, exhaust and air intake very soon.

Being a Florida truck its entire life the heat seems to have "shrunk" the sealant on the roof rain channels and now rust has formed along those channels, I'll have that repaired and painted soon as well.

Below are some pics:
