New Diesel Owner!

Hey Guys I could really use some advise,

I just purchased a 2000 F-250 4X4 7.3L Diesel. 94K miles

Since this is the first diesel I have ever owned, I was hoping to get some advice and pointers.
1) Any know issues that I need to be on the look out for?

2) What good grade / Brand of oil should I run.

3) What other Maintenance items should I stay on top of?

4) What are the "Must-Do" upgrades? IE: Gauge Packages etc.

Thanks in advance for the help.
