97 psd build on a working man's budget!

Hey guys I'm new here, and bought my 1st Ford and first diesel, it's a 1997 f250 xlt long bed ext cab, with the infamous 7.3, she just turned over 213000 and she drives, runs and brakes literally brand new. The interior is imaculate. I will post more pictures when I get home. But here is what I have planned, and remember I am in school and working so this is a big work in progress!!
Plans
Today I am scrapping the running boards and looking some kind of step
This weekend I'm going to do a huge cleaning inside and out, wax the whole 9 yards, also changing all fluids, and work on the tail gate latch
Spray in bed liner
6637 kit
Has a Pac break, just the unit itself has to be mounted.
Straight pipe turbo back with new diamond eye down pipe and polished 6in tip.
I have other little things but give me some ideas please, and I will have lots of pictures when I get home!

looks clean man!!

I always loved those visors above the top of windshield such a good look!

you could look into the BHAF filter mod. supposedly filters better and more flow for the 7.3's and even the ol 5.9 cummins. just did it to my roomates 01 dodge 2500.

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, afe intake
-2006 f350 king ranch, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes,

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....

Interested in learning something new?

Yep, no rust just, just a little where the paint scratched off on the inside of the tailgate. I'm going to do a spray on Bedliner there. The truck has a built tranny, gooseneck, has a 2nd od, d accelerator and a Pac break, also some beefy helper springs in the back. I think it's one of the cleanest obs 2wd around me. I would have liked to have 4wd but I have a jeep that I'm in the process of building, that's my offroader, this is my work/ pull truck. Since I am on a tight budget, eventually the stripes and molding will come off and repaint her bright white, also I am going to take the visor and Bondo the holes eventually, then install cab lights, but overall the truck has really been taken care of, everything on it works as it should.

Thanks man, she's very clean! Yeah I'm taking the running boards off but the visor is growing on me, but she really looks good. I'm getting the 6637 bhaf kit from riffraff.
