advice on what chip to put in?

I have been looking at quite a few chips to install in my 1997 250. Before i go ahead and make the finial purchase i would like to hear what you all prefer. There is a long list of mods that i plan on adding to my truck. I use it for pulling my camper all the time. We take it to the mountains and im looking to add some power. Thanks
