Post New Member and 2013 F350 6.7L owner

Hey everyone, so I managed for my wife to let me get a brand new 2013 Ford F350 Lariat FX4. Definitely a waste of money for me right now because I do not have much to tow/haul but I tend to hit the trails often. Anyways, I joined this forum because I am new to the Diesel world as this is my first diesel anything. I traded in my 2005 F150 FX4 for this truck because I have always wanted a diesel. now I have it and I have put the spray in bedliner, steps, and bedcover on the truck. Now I have a couple other things I want to tweak but I want to see what everyone else things and maybe you all can help me figure out what to do next. I love the power of the truck and the one thing I don't like about the truck which is the only thing is the front lower valance, I don't understand why it is there to limit my front ground clearance, anyone take this off? Next, I do not want to void the warranty in any way but maybe should I tune the truck and also should I get a cold air intake? I appreciate all the help and ideas.

Also, I forgot to mention, should I get a 2.5'' leveling kit? Is it really worth it? What upgrades have you all found best for your trucks?

welcome, nice truck man. level kit would be nice and some 35's

i'd recommend just an SCT tuner and custom tune (inovative or gear head), but some ppl would swear by H&S and or Spartan but to each their own. i just prefer SCT when it comes to ford.

You can buy the 2wd front air damn and it is much shorter and better looking

Thanks guys, I am definitely going to look into the tuner and front air damn. I will eventually work my way to the 35s but I have a lot of traveling to do in the next year so I am going to wait to get new tires until I use up the ones I have. How about an cold air intake? Any suggestions?
