traction bars are definitely a great upgrade to prevent axle wrap. Just look around and see what your options are for the bars. Trevor is a great guy to deal with so you wouldn't be going wrong with buying from him. Also what would the purpose be for buying a muffler? Trying to get rid of the hairdryer sound?

You could do a tranny bypass filter or a coolant bypass filter. Or both Check out Dieselsite.

On my list of mods for this fall

MUFFLER WOULD BE TO KEEP THE COPS AWAY WHEN I AM TOWING MY TRAILER OR CAMPER.

I dont think you will need a muffler. These trucks really dont have a bad drone like some of the older trucks do. The only time your exhaust will be louder will be when starting from a dead stop since the truck has to work a bit harder to get rolling. I wouldnt worry about it. Traction bars are nice and really help when you have a lifted truck. In a stock ride height truck I doubt you will notice much of a difference. What about doing a full EGR delete?

You still get axle wrap at stock height. Load a race tune and do a couple boosted launches then add traction bars and notice the difference between the two.

But like mentioned there is no need to add a muffler to keep cops away while your towing or any type of driving for that matter. Most add mufflers to get rid of the hairdryer sound that our stock turbos produce.

I have heard not to put the egr delete kits on these trucks. I know mine will produce close to 50 lbs of boost, when you let off, the egr gives that extra air some place to go. If you block that off, that air has nowhere to go and you might risk lifting the head. Just what I have heard, I really do not know for sure. Besides, the h&s tuners turn the egr off, so I don't know what you have to gain by blocking it.

I dont want to do an egr delete. I am looking at pmf traction bars or an airdog II 165. Which one of the two would be better for my setup? I tow alot during the summer maybe 8k at most i dont go to the track and I get on it sometimes at a stop light.

I think I am going to do traction bars next. As far as I can tell, I do not need the airdog II. With towing especailly with big tunes, traction bars will help. I have the mini maxx and similar set up as you. So if you get the traction bars, please post with your results. Mine is at stock higth and I still think I need the traction bars. close to 1300 ft.Lb. is a huge amount of torque for those trucks.
