new FPD owner and first diesel truck

hey guys name is jon. I just bought a 2005 f350 fx4 lariat edition diesel truck. Its 4door shortbed. I bought this truck because i wanted a diesel and i want to be able to tow my mustang to the track with ease so i sold my 2001 silverado and bought this. Now the truck is gorgeous, has 170,000 on it but was dealer maintained since day one. I have pages of receipts and all work done. As far as mods it has a air intake, a bullydog power pup tuner and a 5inch turbo back exhaust and a 4inch tailpipe with muffler. I just ordered a diamond eye perfomance dual exhaust for it cause i love the look and wanted to delete the muffler. Now the truck still has the egr and im more then mechanically inclined so doing the work is no issue on deleting the egr cause thats what everyone is telling me to do and saw alot of people on here do it. It also has a 2inch leveling kit, nitto tires, airbags with compressor in rear. I literally just got the truck today and will be registering this friday i hope. I cant wait to hear back from you guys on input and advice on what to do to the truck and stuff like that. btw im from long island ny hope to have some east end guys on here!!!
