chip or no chip??

i am in the process of buying a 99 F250 crew cab, 4x4, 8 ft. box. with 250,000 miles on it. the truck now has the edge evelution in it but i would like to get the TW 6 position. do you guys think this would do more harm to the truck than its worth or do you think itll be fine. obviusly i would get egt, boost, and trans temp guages as well. also there has been no problems with the tranny and the truck has been well maintained. thanx for the input.

just get the TW. Sell the edge, use the profits to buy a TW. Then put the rest in the bank

They are halos I got them on ebay. The thing I dont like is that the brights seem to go down instead of up so I like never use my brights the low beams are pretty bright themselves anyway. Also they are stupid to adjust I dont even know if I was doing it right
