So I'm a n00b to the Diesel world, but not new to cars or trucks in general, nor new to the modding scene.
This is going to be my first truck with a real lift - I did a body lift on my old GMC 2500, but I want to just get some feedback on the stuff I ordered (I think I did a pretty good job searching on here to find what I was looking for...) and also get some tire recommendations.
So I have a 99.5 (02/99 build date), and I ordered the ProComp 4" lift, a Top Gun Customz Steering Stabilizer (standard shocks) and I'm looking to do tires and a tune. (Caryt, I know you're gonna contribute here, and I'm sorry, something about just doing shackles without actually changing the suspension with new parts kind of bothered me. I'll sacrifice a little ride quality for new parts.)
I'm pretty set on PHP's Phoenix 6 pos chip, with 4 tunes 1) Stock 2) 80hp DD 3) 120hp race 4) Anti-Theft (I live outside of Boston, and theft is not uncommon up here)
Now as far as tires go, I'm really considering the Kumho KL78's in 315/75/16 to go on the stock wheels, but I want some opinions. My budget is pretty tight, and I've read these are pretty much the best quality/dollar value out there. Ideally I'd go with BFG A/T's, but they're too expensive. I'll take some other suggestions though.
PS. I've read through the Tires section (I do search before just posting up)
Feel free to throw some pictures up of your trucks with similar setups!!! I'll be doing all the installing this weekend and am quite pumped!
