I have an early 99 and I am running the DP-Tuner and love it. I have 60 Econ, 60 Tow, 80 Econ and Jody has it now adding the drive thru tune. You will be amazed at how much the tuner will wake your truck up. Without the tuner it is a turd. I have the F-5 chip and that is why I have to send it back in to add tunes but if you get the F-6 you can get the tunes e-mailed to you and load them via a USB port if you want more. They hold up to 16 different tunes. I recently added the Wicked Wheel 2 and I must say it was well worth the money. My truck will hit 35 psi of boost at WOT.

I had to get seperate guages. DP offers one but it is pricey. I paid 300 for the AutoMeter guages with the pillar pod. Its a good set up but it might not be for everyone.
