Just bought first diesel

I just bought my first diesel. 2010 SuperCrew 4X4. Wanting to do some mods to get better fuel mileage/power and get that deeper exhaust tone. Dont know much about this since its my first diesel. Im wanting to try to keep it where i wont have warrenty issues if something happens. Can anyone steer me in the right direction of where to start. Im mostly wanting better MPG and that deeper sound.

My suggestion to you would be wake up early tommorow put on a pot of coffee and start reading. As far as the tone and better mpg's sounds like a simple exhaust up grade and a tune is in your near future....Throw a pic of that new truck up and let us see what ya got!

I'm reading and studying as we speak. Since I'm worried about possible warrenty issues in the future I'm guess my best bet would be a dpf back exhaust. Was thinking about 5" but not sure if the it's worth it with just a runner and cold air intake planning on being installed? Ant suggestions on which exhaust sounds the best?

I have a brand new dpf back exhaust 5" kit for sale in the classified and a dpf delete pipe if you wanted to go to a deleted exhaust down the road. The 5" dpf back won't change the sound a whole lot. It just gets rid of the muffler/resonator. Let me know if your interested.

Without getting rid of the DPF, you aren't going to see increased mileage. Read the 'General 6.4 Modifications' sticky in the General 6.4 section.
