tires

toyo mt are the best right now. If you can find the Interco SSR in the right size it has real good siping and is a radial. I have had good luck with both tires. They don't offer to many larger rim sizes though in the SSR.

I hear and have seen bad results on the pro comp. Also they have their hands in to many things. Stay with a company that specializes in rubber not cheap lift kits. Just my two bits.

Another vote for the Toyos either MT or AT. My dad has been running the 37X13.5x17 on his 01 SD for ever still have tons of tread on them. I have been running the ATs for a few months, but thats cuz I went to bigger wheels or I would still be running the last set they had tons of tread left after a years use when I traded them in. Both tires are super quiet as well.

I have always like the Ranch RS 9000s. They are adjustable, and you can get a controler for the cab. That will be my next set when it is time to replace shocks. I will get the wanna be ranchos off that ford put on there.

I don't know anything about the bully dog shift kit. BTS offers a complete upgraded valve body for around 225 I believe. An extremely nice product from what I hear. brianstruckshop.com

I have always had really good luck with toyo's and BFG's, Toyo would be my first choice. And the RS 9000's are awesome, we put a set on my dad's chebby with the in-cab controller and they work great.
