Best Place to Start

This is my second F250. This one is a 2006 F250 Fx4 and I've had it for about three years. I love this truck!!! It pulls my boat beautifully and rides like a dream. My question is where should I customize next? I've already bought a Super Chip programmer, upgraded the stereo and speakers significantly and added a 40 channel CB. If I start at the engine, should I upgrade the intake first or the exhaust? I'd like to upgrade the rear bumper to a nice ranch style too. Obviously like most people, money IS an option (at least my wife says so) I'm not looking to do a lot of four wheeling but I do want to get it running STRONG. I use this truck as a workhorse for my boat as well as driving back and forth to work. Decisions decisions decisions
Thanks for the ideas

intake you wont need until your creepin at 500 hp...the stock airbox on these trucks flows really get an exhaust though so you can get everything out of the engine easier and flow better...other then that id get guages before you did a tuner or any engine work

first id get rid of the superchips if you like your transmission. Get a custom tuned SCT from innovative and if your looking for a cheap set of causes id get an edge insight. easy mount too. An intake and exhaust and that should make you really happy. get a good tow tune and you can get a turbo brake which closes off your viens on the turbo and creates back pressure.
