Airdog is good insurance for fuel.

Otherwise, I would do the tuning first, that way when you add the lift and it goes south, you will know how badly it was affected.

Gearing would be fine up to 37in, so unless your going larger you can gold off on that as well.

Tuning would include; tuner, exhaust and CAI.

CCV can be either homegrown or bought. But can be installed at any time. Check the intake to see if you have oil residue, if so, sooner would be better then later. Otherwise it can wait until your ready.

If you decide to go injectors, you will need custom tuning which you can talk to any of the tuner manufacturers for regarding pricing. I would hold off until your ready as at that point you'll be needing to do other things like head studs so you can support the increased power.

I would start with the tuner/intake/exhaust combo and go from there. EGR delete and Air Dog would be my next choice.

Depends on cash flow. I first put my afe stg II on, next week is the tuner and exhaust. Then will be studs and egr delete, then fuel system, then possibly an elite turbo.
But if cash isnt an issue order it all at once.

Probably because it is something you should NOT put on your truck. People were using it as a power adder and began blowing trucks up.
