Contact Rudy's Diesel Performance. They have a lot of first hand experience with pulling 6.4's. They've built several 2.6 trucks and they have a shop 2.6 truck.

As was said, it all depends what class you want to run in. There are nice compound set ups out there, but there are also some nice single set ups out there for the 6.4. Pick a pulling class and can be built from there. Are you going to daily drive this pulling truck as well or is it going to be a true trailer queen pulling truck? Some of the big singles are streetable, but dont have the street manors that a twin set up has.
