Mods list!

Finally sold the play truck so I can afford to actually get some goodies for the REAL truck Definitely getting 3" DP, but I'm also looking at getting a 6pos chip and/or gauge pod setup, + Trans cooler. My go-fast instinct is saying chip before gauges, but Idk if that's a good idea Any thoughts?

Lmao, I have all autometer z series electric sweep gauges, with the pod painted to match, and a reducer for my straight pipe I was over $500, I want a scan gauge and fuel psi gauge next tho. But my down pipe was $100 to the door and fairly easy install with the right tools.

I'd recommend gauges before chip.

I went with a Hypertech programmer before gauges and I was always guessing on what was going on, especially when towing my 5th wheel. Things like EGT and Trans temp in particular are important temps to know. You don't wanna be frying your engine or cooking the trans. A cooler (or additional cooler) will definitely help. Just passing on my experience.

My first psd hat a programmer on it long before I got it, threw some gauges found out real quick when to let off and keep it easy, it was a lot sooner than I originally thought too, but gauges should be first because even a stock truck can work your parts hard too

Holy ****! Thats ridiculous, its 300 and change for 3 gauges and pod most places. DP should be around what you said.
What would ya'll say is a good trans cooler for these things?
