I pulled the trigger!

Finally after months of searching for a truck and lurking the PSD forums I got my new toy. I picked up an '06 F350 Lariat SB. The previous owner took very good care of it.
I have to give a shout out to Rollin Smoke Diesel. I ordered my ARP stud kit on Sunday 10/10 and found it on my doorstep today when I returned from work.
Thanks for everyones advice.

Welcome to the world of the 6.0and a good year to have. ARP studs will be a good move but do you need to install them now are they bad, i would get a coolent filter fuel pressure gauge and a good set of gauges then when they take a dump you will have them in stock maybe by then you will have some other stuff to install while it is down

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody.
I thought I'd just have the truck studded as a preventative. I have a toyhauler that I'll be pulling so I just thought I'd get 'er done. Yes, I do plan on addressing the cooling issues and get a something to monitor my temps. I don't have picts yet, but I'll post asap.
