New owner from the Motor City

What's up fellas, just bought an 05 F-250 Harley Edition with 96k 1 retired owner miles with every receipt for every penny spent on it. She's absolutely perfect. No mods ever, I plan on a 4" straight pipe and a scan gauge (sct preferably) and I under stand they have supposed stud safe tunes? Ultimately I intend on studding and deleting but that will have to wait til I can get some other projects knocked down.

Bought this truck to replace my 08 G8 GT, that car was amazing amazing but I was putting too many miles on it too quick. I missed the utility and better quality of life a truck affords and figure this truck is the **** and shouldn't lose too much value ever at this point.

My real pride and joy is my 99 Lightning, the reason my diesel can't be a money pit yet lol.

A couple pics, still have to detail it out as I don't think the last owner ever wiped down the interior.

first mod should be a monitor then EGR delete and exhaust. it sucks but fixing weak links should probably come first. read up in the 6.0 section. i suppose there is such thing as stud safe tunes. yet even stock tuning can kill your head gaskets. its really a do at your own risk. either you got a good one or a bad one. i ran hard tuning on stock bolts for a year and a half never had a problem i just did head studs as preventative maintenance id rather fix it before it breaks then break it and crack a head and make things worse.

on a side note. nice truck i always liked the harley trucks.
