DPF Delete or Lift first?

Alright ive been throwing this around all weekend. Ive got the tires and rims already for the lift. Ive also got the tuner for the exhaust and delete so far..

Million dollar question is... Do i want to buy the lift and slap the wheels and tires on first or do i want to buy the exhaust and put that and the tuner on first.. i can only do one at a time financially so thats where my debate comes from. their going to cost almost the same to do either or so it is really basically down to which one do i want to do

Good question...

I put on my 3.5" level kit and 35's within the first few weeks of having my truck, before I even knew what the DPF was or how to delete it. I deleted my truck after a couple months of driving around with the 6" lift and 37's.

I would've done it in the same order if given the choice. I'd rather experience the somewhat negative changes of additional parts (lift + tires) before experiencing the positive changes of less parts (delete + tune). The other way seems as though you're not saving the best for last...

True, but you said you had the tuner, just need an exhaust system or the lift kit and they cost the same. So you either have the most expensive exhaust ever, or you got the best deal on a lift ever.

Im confused? the 4"in BDS lift with fox shocks is gonna cost me $1,600. along with rims and tires which already costed me another $2000. my minimaxx cost me 1700 and im gonna have another probably 1000 in exhaust pipe and stacks.

Sorry the number one exhaust everyone seems to go with is flopro, which costs $500. On the other hand the 8" lift I'm looking into is $4000. I just assumed you would be going with a flopro kit. Any reason your going with the radius arm kit over 4 link?

Oh ok. Yeah I didn't know he already had the tuner. Yeah there's a big scale on prices of lifts. Hell the lift on mine now was $700 with duel stabilizers in the front. I'm buying one of the more expensive ones soon but that shows how cheap they can be. But my flo pro was only about $200. My buddy got it at cost for me when I bought a tuner from him.

I'm not sure of the theoretical differences between radius arms and link arms in terms of performance or function, but I think radius arms look better than 4 link arms in general. I will say that One-Up-Offroad's adjustable link arms are the exception to my statement. However, the aesthetics of the under-carriage is highly irrelevant unless you plan on lifting the truck over 6 inches. This is just me talking...
