New old Power Stroke owner in VA

Hello! My second thread is an intro? Tail waggin the dog LOL! I appreciate every ones help with my fuel leak question.

I bought my 99 (4/99 build date) Power Stroke six weeks ago and love it! It has 85k miles on it, gooseneck and airbagged. Its a loaded out XLT. It has its bumps and bruises but its in great shape mechanically and the interior is like new. I bought it to tow my Jeep Cherokee to the trails and its going to get its first workout this week. I have a 300 mile tow to the coal fields of KY for some off-road fun. So far I have replaced the drain valve, repaired the overdrive switch, installed a stereo system, installed a back up cam and bought 4 new Goodyear Wrangler Armortracs. I have a RiffRaff diesel filter kit on the way and a MBRP exhaust. I do not plan on tuning it just yet. I like it mostly stock. Some pics;





My trailer


Here is what I'm going to haul, a 96 Cherokee(XJ) on 35's and 6" lift.

I want some after market bumpers for this truck. I like the Ranch Hands but they are too expensive for me. I can weld so I can make my own if someone has plans and a cut list

Or if you all have any suggestions for cheap aftermarket bumpers. I like the Road Rhino's.

I plan on de-chroming the truck and I bought 5 more bullet hole wheels today to black out as well.

Thanks! I live in Cave Spring, my girlfriend lives out your way in Chamblissburg. Small world, Roanoke is a small town. I found that truck in Fincastle on a small horse farm. I got it for a decent deal, $13,000
