advice on upgrades anyone??

6637 DIY intake, 4" SD turbo back exhaust (both completed) ordering gauges and TS 6pos chip w TW custom tunes. I'm going to also be doing ccv mod, AIH delete as well. Now being up to speed I'm curious on what yall think I should be looking into doing next. Don't need to tow anything substantial (or at all really) so I'm kinda just looking to get efficient power and then some lol. Thinkin new fuel system maybe from AirDog or FASS.. some John Woods VB as well.. There are some other things I want to do like upgrade head light housing, add fog lights and back up lights, start playing around on the inside like re do whole sound system upgrade front and rear benches do some more tint work, spray in liner.....but I look at those as projects to do when I'm done w what I "need" to do per say lol

Any advice??

Just my opinion: I think you're working on the "Need-to-do" things. Usually the intake, exhaust, gauges and tuning are the "BIG" ones to do.
Things like AD or FASS, the valve body are not "Needed" per se, but close to it.
The other things are cosmetic, light housings, fogs, bed-liner, back up lights and seats. They are 'nice-to-haves', which I've done some of them. It's one of the ways you make your truck yours.
Sound system upgrade is more of a function preference for you (nothing wrong with a good sound while driving), which could be a selling point down the road.

I figured I was doing it in the order it should be pretty much. Cosmetic stuff is most likely the last of what ill me doing. I want my truck running as efficiently and as optimal as possible before I start on cosmetic n stereo
