Question Should I buy?

I have a friend that just traded his 06' in for a new 2011. He was running the Bully Dog Triple Dog and had no problems with it at all. I was thinking about buying it and putting it on my 04' that is stock. I want peoples input and I know most people will say buy an SCT. I would like to hear from people that have used a Bully Dog and how they liked it or didnt. Thanks for the help.

I bought a SCT and have nothing bad to say about it. The trans shifts great and truck runs awesome.

I have a Bully Dog Triple Dog on my truck just because it came with the truck when I bought it. It makes great power and is very fast. But it is hurting my tranny and it's starting to slip. As long as you take it easy it should be fine...but if it was up to me I would have ditched the Bully Dog a long time ago and bought an SCT if I had the money

Not sure if bully dog programs trans on 6.0 ,had one on 7.3 smoked like a freight train. Hard to be subtle when black smoke covers the road.

I would also look at price. Unless it were dirt cheap, I would go SCT all the way and have the piece of mind that you tuned your truck right let alone the endless world of tuning options available for what you want and how your truck is setup.
