New OBS owner in Fort Lauderdale

I sold my 2010 Tundra 4.6 4x4 (bulletproof for 47k miles I had it) and picked up this 97 F250 back in December, so far I'm really happy with the trade. Same mpg, wayyy more torque and no more car payment . These OBS trucks are awesome, I hope to have it for a long time.

I use this as a daily driver and for hauling a 7k boat on weekends. It's completely stock with 122k miles. So far I've done just basic maintenance. 285 Firestone Destination ATs, Bilstein HD shocks, Moog pivot arm bushings, XRF steering linkage, Dieselsite water pump and 203* thermostat, filters and changed all the fluids except the trans, which was rebuilt at 85k. Picked up the topper off Craigslist for $75.

Future plans are gauges, downpipe, intake, the quietest 4" exhaust I can buy, and hpop and stage 1 with a tune. I'll upgrade the trans when this one gives up. End goal is 300+ to the wheels with as little smoke and noise as possible, I do love hearing that turbo spool though.

Suggestions and comments welcome. Thanks already, this site is a great resource!
