what first?

Just bought an 04 F350 with 6.0 powerstroke. I see there are different conversations about different things to do. What is the most important maintanence to do first? What is the EGR delete deal? It has 37K miles on it. Any advice would be great. thanks.

well, first off welcome to the .org and congrats on the new truck. in my opinion the most important maintenence items are fuel filters, oil change, and a clean air filter.
