buying stock 7.3 service truck tomorrow

hey guys, im planning on buying a bone stock 7.3 f350 drw newer body style 2wd service truck with 32,000 miles tomorrow. first i wanted to know what to look for before i hand him the check (besides the oil pan).

then the next step is some mild performance products to make her breathe a little better,

looking for recommendations on
exhaust brand, size
tuner model
air intake or filter

next its a 2wd sits nice and low to the ground, whats the best way to jack the front end up just a little bit?

finally, how about the front end conversions to the better looking newer style front? whats the best place to buy them?

Thanks in advance,
Blake

is that a typo on the mileage?
check everything in the front end not much if factory grease able so its something to replace.

mbrp 4" turbo back
tony wildman 6 position chip
gauges and pillar
6637 diy mod

Id keep it low or even lower it since its 2wd

any front end conversions IMO a junk yard is your best place

I use car-parts.com to find everything
