What do I need to know?

Hey I just bought my first 7.3. It's a 99 f350 dually crew cab, long bed, and we bought it to haul our horses with. This is my first diesel, so the in's and out's of it are very new to me. I am loyal to Fords and knew that I needed a 7.3 and not a 6.0 - mine seems to be in great shape with 137000 miles on it - I was just wondering what I need to watch out for, things I should know, etc. I was also wondering if there are any extra guages I should add and if so, what I should watch for on them.

Thanks!
