New and looking for help

I just bought a 2000 F250 7.3L manual trans shortbed extended cab. This is my first diesel truck and so far I am thrilled. I always buy used and while I wasn't looking to buy a vehicle this one just fell in my lap. I have interests that usually test the limits of whatever truck I have. They include 4X4 rock climbing out west, pulling a 33 foot travel trailer, truck camping (why I have a travel trailer and not a fifth wheel, I have a camper shell on my truck) and I also drive about 300 to 500 miles a week visiting clients for work.

I am eager to start outfitting my new (to me) truck with a few things and I hope to get some advice from those with experience. Thanks

We'll im definately no expert so you'll have to ask someone who knows what they are talking about but you could go ahead and get you an exhaust, air intake, gauges, and a chip. Now which ones you would like for your setup ask some people that know a little more than me. My truck has stock straightpipe exhaust, zoodad mod, air intake and gauges on the way and in a month a ts chip. good luck
