How important?

How important is it to get a intake and exhaust? already gettin gauges and has 6 pos chips
Cant decide if I should bite the bullet and just buy it or just stick with stock
Will be towing my mud truck with it.

you can do an intake and a straight pipe for under 100 bucks if you do it right, and its worth every penny... your truck will thank you for letting it breathe.

At least pull the muffler and cat if youve got one. Then just keep an eye on your egts. If your not planning on doing much more than tunes, the stock exhaust just straight piped should be fine. If you tow a lot or have plan to build it up more in the future, get a 4 or 5" turbo back.

I put a 4" turbo back on my work truck and got an extra 40-50 miles per tank.

the higher horsepower tunes will raise your egts, but like above, towing once a month shouldnt be a problem with a straight pipe.

If i remember i think the muffler on these trucks necks down to 2.5 inches inside. which is pretty restricting
