Cory I have a job one 08 and been running the 250 275 and the 310 tune w/TCM since they released the tunes. I think you will have no problem with the 250 tune and get the best mpg. I tow my 12k 5th wheel camper with the 275 since I got it . You just have to watch your temps.This is with dpf delete I see you are running dpf on.

"Safe" depends on your right foot. I run the 275 tune everyday and drive very aggressive, but I dont beat. Use common sense and any of the tunes up to 275 will be perfectly safe for daily use.

Personally the tune I feel safest having a little fun in and know i'm not gonna hurt anything is the 250.

For towing use the 210 TP

People have blown Head Gaskets on the 275, and 310 tunes on here. However, I think most who have, run the crap out of their trucks. I run the 210 99% of the time, and although it doesn't give the best fuel mileage, I can use it for everything safely. But I do tow a lot with my truck.
