Finally got my F250 now need some input

I just got my 08 F250 cc srw xlt 4x4 a few days ago with 27k on it. Going to be putting on a ranch hand front end before any thing since I have to run the gauntlet of deer and larger animals where I live. Looking at doing a dpf delete with 4" dual exhaust with the spartan phalanx tuner as soon as money permits/tax season. Only doing the delete to gain a few mpg and to avoid issues down the road since I want this truck to last at least 10-15 years. Outside of the delete and normal care is there any thing else I should take note of to keep it bullet proof. As a side note I am not wanting to make the high hp just the economy/long life as this truck will handle anything the way it is. Also changing it over to all amsoil at 30k when I do the tranny fluid change.
I also remember seeing info about a different/improved water seperator-details please.
Also the reusable fuel or oil filters are they worth it?

Pics listed to make it official not the best ones but what I have handy at work.

Higher HP tunes will yield the best fuel economy.

But won't the higher hp tunes produce the most wear and tear on parts such as the tranny casuing earlier failure/issues?

Maybe/Maybe not...

That has more to do with your right foot than anything...

I'm looking to make fun of your truck but I think it needs some real mirrors.
