1200 bucks to spend

I just got my first pay check from Ford and i want to buy myself something. I want to spend about 1200 bucks. I have made a list of things that I would like, please add anything else.

First off I have a early 99 CCLB f350, For specs and things I already have look in my Sig.

1. amp steps
2. regear
3. stacks (maybe)
4. Auto enginuity softwear
5. Rhino liner rockers and bed
6. adrenaline HPOP

Or should I wait for another pay check and buy:
1. Turbo
2. Injectors

just choose whatever is the most important to you... Then slowly keep putting money in the turbo/injectors/tranny fund

I agree with bigbill about going for power first then exterior work. But also before engine upgrades a regear would be awesome and that would give me quite a bit of power. But the reason I want steps because its a PITA for my gf to get in my truck and I told her ide buy her steps for my truck! lol I was also thinking for a little bit cheaper route would be go to Nfab steps with the 3 steps per side. But again i dont think they will look that good cuz the lower part of my truck is tan.

I dont know if a ford dealer would give me a discount. I work at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in SUV body so i dont think they can do anything with scanning my truck here. haha
