13 upgrades

just took the STEP UP from a Duramax and I love the F-250 I just have a couple questions about performance mods and upgrades the truck has 37,000 miles in it. All the truck is really used for is towing a 13000 pound 5th wheel. One thing I have noticed is the fuel tank difference, are there any good options for oem replacement tanks that are reliable? And also, would this be worth deleting? I have been doing a lot of reading on here about deleting and tuning. A lot of people recommend deleting to get rid of the regens that are hard on the engine with the temps. Would this be more beneficial for me since this is the main job for the truck is heavy hauling? Also what are the recommended exhaust and air intake. I will probably go with the ez link with the ppei tunes if I choose to go this route. Anything else anyone can recommend? As the truck sits right now it has 35 in tires and a wireless air bag system

Titan for the fuel tank.

Delete depends on emissions checks and warranty. If you tow heavy all the time it will passive regen a lot. It probably less important on a truck that hauls heavy continuously.

If it only gets driven occasionally, empty, and short trips then more likely to have emissions failures.

I would probably wait till something breaks.
