Saying hi

Hello all!
I dont want jinx it, but I recently purchased a 7.3 f350 on ebay. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival. Just doing a bunch of research as of now until it shows up at my doorstep. Its a 1999 - late model I believe with 80000 on the odometer. 2wd crew cab long bed lariat.

What tips/suggetsions do you have for me? Suggested upgrades for fuel economy? Maintenance items?

I look forward to learning more about my diesel...I am quiet excited about it.
