new guy from Vegas

Howdy ladies and gents. Name is Josh, born and raised in Michigan, Air Force has me stationed in Vegas. Traded in my 2012 F150 Ecoboost for a white 2004 F250 6.0 4x4, Single can longbed. Truck has 94k on it, got a 3 year warranty with it because I am well aware of the problems, So the warranty should suffice until I cam afford all the bulletproofing. It came with a Banks Hi-Ram Elbow, K&N CAI, downpipe and exhaust. Its no ecoboost, as mine ran a 13.0, but I have always wanted a Powerstroke, so I'm very content, and saving almost $275/ month. I'm not new to Fords, and not new to forums, just to diesels. I will be ordering a EGR delete kit, doing a single stack, changing fuel filter, coolant flush amd oil change this weekend. I'm not sure if I should just change the oil cooler while in there as I've read that you might as well if doing EGR maintance. So if you are from Vegas, and feel like giving a "newbie" a hand, or guidance, get at me!

Thank you fellas, I appreciate it! Yes, I've been skimming the 6.0 forums trying to take in all the knowledge, I might do the Head studs myself with cab on, I got a quote for $3300 just do them ( which I think is insane), I ain't paying noone that much.
