What's next!?

I've had this truck for 2 years with a total of 73k miles and so far I've done:
-H&S mini max
-Dpf delete w/5" turbo back, fake slide over muffler for inspection
-egr delete w/stainless 90*
-airdog
-ccv to atmosphere
-3" cac pipe
-coolant filter w/extended life coolant
-s&b intake
-4" rancho lift
-pro comp traction bars for a little peice of mind
-35" trail grabblers with some xd rims that I've havnt seen on hardly any other trucks besides a 6.4 off of a diesel power magazine

I think that is all I have in her so far. Just trying to get an idea of anything else I can do to make this a better daily driver. I already know head gaskets but that's something I shouldn't have to worry about for a while since I hardly get on it.

So what's next, what else can I do to her performance wise?

Your truck sounds solid...Head studs (When needed)? Other than that run her for a few hundred thousand miles and enjoy.

Gah, I can't look at your gallery off my iPhone. And I'm sitting on a job site at te moment. Where did you mount your horns and tank at? And how is all te wiring and switches ran?

Because I've actually been interested in doing something like that. Maybe put those auxiliary switches to some good use.

I have a long bed, so I made a shelf with heavy gauge angle iron from Home Depot, grinded it down and painted it, bolted up with cad plated hardware. 5 gallon tank, viar 380C compressor. My low profile tool box sits infront of the air set up.



I put the horns on the driveshaft crossmember, Nathan k3la (P's).



Also, consider upgrading your lighting system to true hid projector headlights. I did mine and a few other members have done so as well. Or holler at Cary from CT Performance to get them done professionally. He's on my friends list or what ever deal that is.





The end of that driveway is about a 150'

How ridic do your horns sound in the cab? I've been waiting to figure mine out til it gets nicer outside for a substantial amount if time. I want to try to mount them with the ends of the horn in front of my cab tho. Don't wanna deafen myself in the process of pissing everyone off lol

Definatly looking into the train horn. Where did you order it all from? And about how much was it?

And I know icon is better but I'm not doing any serious off roading and my dad has a 4" rancho on his 06 F250 and I drove his for a while and I liked it.
