Personally, for me, I want to an am in the process of getting a leveling kit for the front, a remote start system, center caps and get a full blown detail. Already did the undercoating by Ziebart last week so I am off to a good start. Would also like to be more consistent with adding fuel additive after EVERY fill up.

I don't, chime in with your opinions.....
Don't waste your money on a leveling kit. On our year trucks the factory adjustment will raise it to the droop stop and make it so it will not line up to spec.

fluidampers, timing gears, big exhausts, studs if the motor is out of the engine compartment, guages, bilsteins, new tires, more PY0 alloys, flatbeds, body and paint, etc. GM8 turbos in all the older ones, etc. basically fixing them up on a budget and not big ticket go fast stuff, just reliability, durability, and safe operation.
In the bold, dido for myself. Heck, still have a 78 VW Rabbit to finish up (good summer rig, since the heater doesn't work)...then bought a 81 VW Rabbit pickup (needs head gasket). Bought my 94 6.5L TD instead of fixing my F150, which I will do..... Heck, back of the mind is wanting to watch the govt liquidation web for 6.5 engines (have a military installation that has had them on auction in the past.)

For the 6.5L.....not sure. Fix the small stuff (which I'm doing already).

I will be replacing the crossover pipe with one one those 2.5" mandrel bend bad boys and I have no idea when the balancer and pulley have been done on this truck so it definitely needs to get done sooner then later. Guess I should do oil cooler lines also

Get the supply pressure issue worked out and the vibration at 40-45 mph.

The supply pressure drops under load. Going to wire the LP directly to a battery and see if that fixes it. If so, I'll make up something more permanent going through the existing OPS relay. If it doesn't work, drop the tank and test with no sock. If that fixes it, I'll be putting a twist on filter before the LP and running sockless. If all that fails, Wallbro FRB5-1.

Maybe new a new 4911 IP if fundage works out.
