DPF/DOC delete and some good tunes. Go with 5in exhaust looks a lot better than 4 on these trucks. Look into a Dashdaq or an electronic monitor and get an intake on there

probably go with sparten means I am a dealer for them, I have an sct in my 6.0 I installed a sparten on a customers truck and since then I have had to have one. Thinking I will load the 275 tune. I really dont want the truck loud, I pull a trailer alot and dont want the drone noise. Whats it going to take to install 35 in tires and look good. I have a 6 inch lift on my 06, had a 4 on my 01.

The stacks dont give me a drone. i have a ext cab sb so they are closer to my head then a cc. if u want a kinda quiet ride go with a 5 inch straight pipe it looks bad azz and is quiet for a 5 inch. 35s will fit under a stock truck with the correct backspacing on rims. i have a leveling kit with 35s and no issues. it looks damn good. its the way to go. if u want to look low and fast go with stock height and 33s, it looks sick.

I sold my 06 and just put 35 atz on it and the guy jewed me down, so I have 35s. I also had a 7.3, I did like it. I travel alot with my truck for my business so I try to keep a newer truck. I think tuner first, then wheels and my old tires. Probably want the wait untill I get the new wore off the tuner before I put the new tires on.

no kidding on that, I tuned a 2010 and it was stupid fast, it would smoke the tires from 25 mph. I wanted one ever since. Now I have one.

Yea the newer trucks are better for a lot of traveling. comfortable. Did u like the ATZs i want them bad but not really certain on them. Mickey thompson ATZs look awesome.

I didnt like the tires they picked up every rock on my road and beat the hell out of my truck. I could run 90 down the highway and drive the rumble strip and rocks would fly out. I made my first long trip with them and went 500 miles and still had rocks in them. I always want them to, I wont buy them again as long as I have a half of mile of gravel to travel everyday.

Spartan is what I recommend.....of course lol. The AFE downpipe back exhaust systems are really nice. The Powerstroker67 DPF/CAT delete pipes are really nice as well. With one of those kits you can actually run a really nice DPF back exhaust like one that MBRP offers.

I think I do want the spartan for sure, I havent decided what airbox to run. I will probably get the dpf delete from whoever. I really dont want the truck to be noticable with the exhuast. May just delete the dpf and leave the rest. I dont know yet. I would like the power without alot of drone
