That should be the topic of your thread for the next posts
Will this be your daily driver? Or you have another daily driver and this is your fun car/truck?
This truck is my daily driver... when I'm home. I fly to/from my work site and have a diesel '13 CCLB SuperDuty kitted out for rescue that I tool around in up there. I work 7 days on, 7 days off, and am on call 24hrs a day when working.
First of all, I have an awesome job... a contract industrial safety and rescue technician working for the Norwegian state oil company. Biggest benefit of being an independent contractor is how little I pay in tax compared to when I was an employee, 14% corporate tax and 12% personal tax as compared to the 42% personal tax I was paying before; that 16% savings translates to an additional $23K a year over what I was taking home just over a year ago.
Next tip... do the work yourself. I'm no mechanic, but I can figure stuff out as long as I have resources to pull from, and for all the modern mopar forums out there, you can pretty much find anything you need through said forums.
Lastly, I look for killer deals before buying a lot of stuff, and it helps to know the right people sometimes. Sponsorships really help for somethings, but I also pick up a lot of stuff used these days and make it work for my application.
