What's on your 6.0 to-do list?

Err, I noticed I was a little backed up on mine. What's your to-do list like?

Heres mine:
Install tint (have tint)
Install front mount winch bar (have part)
Install Winch (have part)
Install new PTM grill (needs painted still)
Install painted front bumper (have part)
Install painted rear bumper (have part)
Install solution to back up sensor holes in rear bumper - no sensors, I use a camera. Maybe super bright LEDs for back up lights? (no patience)
Replace chrome handles / mirrors with black or PTM (no part yet)
Install new rims (need tires swapped & balanced)
Delete the Kitty
Fix the Exhaust Y-Pipe (hits off drive shaft when hauling large loads of dirt)
Put new Exhaust tips on (don't have part)
LED Dash/Door Conversion (have parts)
Build custom sub box center console (in design)
Full interior swap from tan to black (no $$)
Bullet Proof 6.0 (Goes in Tuesday)

Current Status of truck - Not driveable

Interesting topic, curious to see what others have planned. So, here's my build list as it currently stands (subject to change without notice):

Madpowerstroke Stage 1 Turbos everyone's talking about. (working out details)

EGR Cooler upgrade to BPD, and possible rebuild of stock oil cooler or BPD external. (researching which path is best with the plans of heavy towing)

F350 'Fatboy' / F450 Pickup Wide Track Front End conversion. (This project is being a real pain, as I can't find a complete parts list to complete it, maintaining the 8x200mm bolt pattern and 17" Rims)

A moderate installation of Chicken lights under the front bumper, down the full length of the sides, and under the tailgate.

Installation of a solid headache rack.

Work toward a Banks Intercooler and ported out intake manifold.
