Another New Guy

Well, I have a 2004 F250 SuperDuty that is now officially paid off and let's face it, it is time to upgrade. Instead of dumping 60k into a new truck, I am putting this time, energy, and effort into fixing my truck up right. I am not looking to build some ridiculous 1000 HP truck, but am looking to build it a bit stronger and getting rid of some of the 6.0L short comings. That being said, any thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated. For starters, here are a few things that I am looking at upgrading (and feel free to chime in as I am just starting my research):

Transmission: Looking at the ATS 5R110 Stage 2 Package, 2003+ Ford 4wd
Intake:
Exhaust:
Programmer:
Brakes:
Suspension:

Also, looking at doing some custom fab work... some interior stuff, mostly cosmetic, but still working the details on that as I am by no means a fiberglass or upholstery expert.

The ultimate goal is to build something that looks pretty stock from the outside, but will rip your face off once it fires up...but without breaking the bank if you know what I mean.

Stay tuned as I post photos and update as progress is made. Looking forward to the project and any input you guys have.

Transmission: Looking at the ATS 5R110 Stage 2 Package, 2003+ Ford 4wd DO NOT get ATS.... Bad track record!!! The best are BTS or Suncoast... do more research on this!
Intake: S&B or AFE
Exhaust: Diamond Eye or MBRP
Programmer: ONLY SCT with custom tunes
Brakes: not needed but if you want.
Suspension: Beilstien shocks
