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

+1 Everyone lives and dies by TW tunes but I love my DP chip, and I think the pricing was a little better.

Thanks for the fast response. I can already tell i will be spending alot of time on these forum. I have not looked into the tony wildman chip or the DP until you mentioned it. I went to a few links im wondering what to put in the "custom tunning" Gauges what do you recommend?
