2004 F350 changes/upgrades

I've just purchased my first diesel last Jan. Love it, wish I had done it sooner.

Now I want to make some changes too it. And well I have been modifying my mustangs for years but now instead of down... I want to go up.

So to start this is what I have already.

I ordered the 2007 Header Panel, 2007 Harley grill and lights.
I have a custom tubular bumper (front) being made since I cant find the one I like.
Bushwacker cut out flares.
Street Scene roll pan and class 3 hida hitch (goes behind license plate).
Cervinis Dual Ram Air hood (functional)

I just put in a 3" leveling kit in the front and 2" blocks in the rear. I also have a set of 35 x 14.5 x 20's going on there aswell.

Im just waiting to here back from ford on my pricing for an 08 F150 steering wheel, 2008 power mirrors.

Im going to continue reading through here but I really would like to know if there is anything that I should do now that the lift is in? Is the brake lines need extending? I ordered a drop pitman arm for the steering.

I want to order a dual stabilizer kit and dual front and rear shock kits aswell. I was liking the FabTech hardware, but does anyone else have any thoughts on that.

I also was curious to know if I can change from the single alt. to dual. alt. and what exectly did that benefit having two? Reason Im asking is I eventually want to put in a 220v 60amp inverter into the truck to go with the compressor so I can run a welder or plasma cutter off the truck.

All the parts are in the basement for the most part. Its a little snowy out still so I am just waiting for the melt to clear it. I also need to find a 2005 - 2007 front bumper for my truck before I really can do anything.

here is a picture of the truck. I will take pictures of all my parts here when I have a min. to spare.

Oh the 10000k 55w HID H13 headlight kit and fog light (also 55w 10000k HID) have arrived. They will be mounted when I have the front end off the truck to put on the Header Panel etc...

I also am just setting up the order details for my 12+LPM HHO kit with a Bully Dog programmer. That should arrive within the next couple weeks.
